Control Systems

It is rarely possible to match the installed heater load exactly to the process heat requirement. For this reason, a control system is normally a prerequisite in most industrial infrared radiant heat applications. The ability to control heat output allows us to optimize the heating process.

With all radiant heat transfer applications there is a limit to the amount of energy which can be absorbed by the target over a specific period of time. Modern manufacturing requires short process times with minimal energy usage. Applying excess heat introduces the risk of surface scorch which is why it is critical that the heater output can be tuned to provide both process speed and high quality parts. Ceramicx can build custom control heat systems and specialised industrial heaters to provide this, from simple open loop percentage time based systems to closed loop PID. All our control systems utilise solid state power control (thyristor/triac), either zero-cross SSR’s or phase angle power controllers depending on heater load type. Applications vary enormously, from small single zone systems to large multi-zone systems required in Thermoforming applications.

Depending on the zone requirements of the application, we can use one or more 1/16 DIN temperature controllers or for larger systems a PLC with HMI is generally used, we can use multiple brands depending on the requirements and regularly complete systems using Allen Bradley, Siemens and Cannon Automata equipment. These can be combined with a Hetronik multichannel control system to increase functionality and controllability and also provide valuable feedback on load status. Regardless of the size and complexity of the system required, Ceramicx has a solution to suit.
