Before the use of machinery was introduced, a large quantity of products were manufactured by hand. The Industrial Revolution changed everything in regards to how these processes were carried out, giving way to mass production. This in turn, greatly reduced the cost of goods. Today, these fascinatingly complex systems are deeply interwoven in the web of the world’s economy, and exceptionally supplying its increasing demands.
In the early days of implementation, production systems and processes were a new concept that still required manual operations to a certain degree. Precise measurements of a variety of factors was lacking, and thus accidents were very common. We have certainly come a long way since then, and thankfully are very fortunate to count on the necessary instrumentation to help us keep watch, understand, and make adjustments to every element involved in various processes. As with everything, there are still risks for people working in these environments, but these have been greatly reduced as more effective methods have been incorporated.
For over 30 years Tempcon has been providing a great range of instrumentation devices to control, measure and monitor different factors. We understand that in attention to detail lies the excellence of quality and safety, and that the streamlining of processes will undoubtedly lower overall costs.
The use of data loggers in various industries are widely popular due to their versatility. Choosing one can be challenging, and will greatly depend on what you wish to measure and how. Some models like the HOBO UX90-001 measure state, event, pulse, and runtime to assist in energy management, water and gas flow, and the operation of mechanical equipment in a facility. Others can log and monitor factors like current, voltage, resistance and strain, in addition to temperature, like Grant’s DT85.
There will be cases in which other types of instrumentation will be more effective like sensors and probes or hand held devices among others. Hand held infrared thermometers for example, offer flexibility in measuring temperatures in hard to reach areas and moving targets such as in machinery, motors, food stores, and heating and ventilating areas.
These days you can even monitor factors via wireless devices. There are many types to choose from, and should you need advice on which is best for you, don’t hesitate and give us a call. With our expertise we will be able to suggest the most fitting models for your needs.
If you are involved in the pharmaceutical, cosmetics, or food processing industry for example, it will be important to maintain high levels of hygiene. These types of products are usually manufactured in controlled environments, such as clean rooms in order to reduce pollutants like chemical vapours, dust, or airborne microbes. This is done by measuring temperature, air velocity, and differential pressure among others, as well as adhering to strict codes like wearing the appropriate garments. We have a great selection of programmable data loggers suitable to carry out these types of measurements and more should you require it.
When it comes to measuring weight with balances we can provide you with many options. Currently we offer various models by OHAUS, the world wide leading manufacturers who serve a variety of markets. We carry a good number of products for the pharmaceutical industry which are used to compound and count pills quickly and accurately.
Back in the day, the process of bottling liquids such as beers, juices, and wines by hand was time consuming and highly inaccurate in comparison with today’s methods. Bottles would usually be either over or under filled and great quantities of the product could be lost due to accidents. Today’s bottling lines are mostly automated, and every part of the process has been carefully calculated and continuously monitored to minimise discrepancies.
Factors such as the volume, flow, liquid level, and even pressure are seriously taken into account in bottling lines. A wide range of our products are suitable for use in these cases.
As it is the case with a lot of industries, there will be without a doubt a large amount of waste water, or effluent returned to the environment. It is the business’s responsibility to make sure that the liquid contains acceptable amounts of dissolved oxygen in order to minimise the environmental impact, otherwise appropriate measures should be taken. By browsing our site you will find devices to measure these levels effectively.
We aim to remain the source for all your instrumentation needs, and should you need to calibrate any of your measuring devices, we can offer you this service. Should you wish to acquire your own calibration devices, these are also available for purchase.
We are here to answer any and all of the questions you might have. Our knowledgeable team can offer you support and assistance if you are not sure which device would better suit your requirements. If you’d like to have a chat with us and find out how we can help give us a call at 01243 558270 or fill out our contact form and we will get in touch with you shortly.
