Temperature Profiling in Industrial Coating
Thermal Profiling in the Industrial Coating Industry

Datapaq® thermal profiling systems offer a reliable means of measuring the true product and environmental temperature in various types of industrial coating processes and applications. All Datapaq systems are comprised of Insight™ software, data loggers, and a selection of protective thermal barriers and thermocouples. Our systems help you make changes in temperature to improve product quality and increase profitability in the following areas:

  • Finished product quality - Prove that your oven provides the necessary cure schedule to give the physical and cosmetic coating properties you require. Prevent under cure or over cure issues, risk of downtime, costly rejects or rework and product recalls.
  • Process validation - Create the certified traceable profile report to prove to any customer and regulatory body (Qualicoat, ISO9000, CQI-12) that your process is in control. The single page report could win you that next contract.
  • Optimize productivity and efficiency - Use accurate profile data to optimize your oven. Maximize line speed to give optimal productivity without risking product quality. Make oven temperature setpoint adjustments to reduce power consumption. Imagine the potential energy cost savings you could achieve over the next 12 months!
  • Rapid problem solving - Highlight oven problems immediately and use data information to recommend corrective action. Prove that any service or maintenance carried out has been successful. Remember, each lost hour of production is costly to your company.

Note that our product recommendations are based on the most common applications. For specific needs, please contact your local sales office.
