CLEVELAND - Sept. 11, 2019 - PRLog -- Grant OMK610 Oven Logger Kit Provides Complete Solution

CAS DataLoggers supplied a temperature monitoring solution for an industrial paint curing oven used by a manufacturer of commercial snow removal equipment. This customer was experiencing periodic problems with the quality of their powder-coated (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Powder_coating) parts. An industrial oven temperature recorder was required to make a more detailed analysis and identify the problem, so management began searching for a complete through process paint curing oven temperature profiling system that was durable, had the appropriate probes and user-friendly data analysis software designed for paint and powder coating application.

Installation

The customer chose a Grant OMK610 Oven Data Logger Kit (https://www.dataloggerinc.com/product/omk610-oven-temperature-profiling-kit/) to perform a more detailed temperature profile of paint oven and the curing process. The kit included a compact oven temperature data logger along with a stainless steel thermal barrier capable of protecting the data logger at temperatures up to 250°C (482°F) for as long as 50 minutes. An optional phase change insert which, when added to the barrier, allowed extended operation at the rated temperature to a full 100 minutes. The 6-channel data logger supported standard Type-K thermocouple probes and could sample up to eight time per second to capture even the most rapid temperature change. The logger was equipped with a USB communications interface to connect to a PC for setup and download of stored data. A variety of probes, specifically designed for paint and powder coat applications, including models for surface and air temperature with magnetic or clamp attachments could be included in the kit.

Usage

Additionally, the Grant OMK610 oven logger kit included the PaintView setup and data analysis software, a Windows based software package designed specifically for the paint and powder coating applications. PaintView enabled storage of preprogrammed cure data curves and display of calculated cure percentages. It also allowed easy setup and download of recorded data from the logger into a time vs. temperature chart. The paint cure calculation offered a choice of methods between the Grant 'classic' cure or area integration cure analysis methods. A database could be built containing different cure curves for multiple paint types from various paint manufacturer.

Benefits

Using the data collected with the OMK610 kit, the manufacturer's was able to immediate correct the production of dull parts and high field failure rates, having identified the underlying curing problems. Additionally, the oven temperature profiling system assisted in production quality control and led to lower operating costs, providing everything needed for paint oven temperature profiling and paint cure calculations in one easy to use and convenient kit.
