What is Industrial Temperature Profiling?

Temperature profiling is the process of recording and interpreting temperatures of products as they move through either a conveyorized or batch heating process (typically an oven or furnace). The collected numeric data is converted by temperature analysis software into meaningful information and displayed as a graph – thermal profile.

This information tells you what temperatures your product reached, for how long and at what point of the process. Process engineers know what the perfect profile for their product should be and variations from the ideal indicate a potential problem or unacceptable quality. By analyzing the thermal profile, you are able to verify and improve product quality, increase throughput and solve production problems.

The necessary components of an effective temperature profiling system include: thermocouple sensors to gather temperature information, data acquisition loggers to collect the data, thermal barriers to protect the data loggers, and most importantly, temperature profiling software for the analysis and archiving of all temperature data.
