Temperature Profiling in Industrial Coatings

Coil Coating

Coating cure of either steel or aluminum coil strip is done on a high speed coil coating line, which will be used in the fabrication of many products in the construction, transportation, packaging or domestic appliance cookware markets.

Application Need 

Monitoring both oven and coil strip surface temperature across the width of the coil, from the start to the finish of the oven cure process is critical. This is accomplished by generating a temperature profile to demonstrate that the coil reached the desired temperature for the correct time duration. This ensures that the coating is cured correctly, which is necessary to provide protection of the coil for its intended use.

Benefits to the customer 
  • Measure both oven air and coil strip surface temperature across the entire width of coil and throughout the oven
  • Creation of temperature profile traces from which time at temperature data can prove coating cure and coil quality
  • Accurate optimization of line speed and zone temperature settings to protect quality and enhance productivity
  • Rapid fault finding tool to identify the root cause of process problems and solve them efficiently
Thermal Profiling Systems
  • Three air and three surface sensors provide the oven and strip temperature across the strip, from start to finish of process
  • Fast sampling 0.05s provides high resolution profile data for rapid coil line processes
  • CoilPaq system designed with low height barrier and arm width choices allows safe passage through different sized coil strip lines
