Data Loggers for Industrial Oven Temperature Profiling

Using data loggers for industrial oven temperature profiling has become integral to baking operations. By capturing the temperature fluctuations that naturally occur during a baking cycle, bakers can ensure the consistency and quality of their finished products. With this precision instrumentation, manufacturers have been empowered to inspect dozens or even hundreds of runs with far greater accuracy while utilizing powerful reporting software to analyze the recorded data. Control over the four baking parameters that determine the quality and safety of your baked goods – air velocity, heat flux, humidity, and temperature – is now within reach.

One of the most advanced data loggers for industrial oven profiling on the market is Reading Thermal’s SCORPION® 2 Data Logger. This system is designed to provide accurate, reliable data logging in any industrial oven environment. Featuring modular compatibility with various Smart Sensor technologies, our data logger is ideal for consistently measuring critical baking parameters integral to producing high-quality products across multiple ovens. Reading Thermal has spent over 25 years developing industry staple data logging technology that exceeds expectations. The SCORPION® 2 Data Logger results from that research and development, offering unparalleled accuracy and ease of use.

Compiling an Accurate Industrial Oven Temperature Profile

Temperature profiling is the process of recording, measuring, compiling, and analyzing the temperature metrics of products throughout an oven’s baking cycle. It’s integral for gaining insights into a variety of factors, such as:

  • The time-temperature relationship between the oven and the product 
  • Detection of any temperature anomalies 
  • Oven performance optimization 
  • Product uniformity throughout a batch. 

Each variable has a pronounced impact on the final quality of each batch, meaning any deviance from the standard norm you would expect from your ovens results in inconsistent products. With the SCORPION® 2 Data Logger’s modular design, you can easily create multiple accurate temperature profiles of any industrial oven environment, stored and ready for download later.

The data logger must be run through the baking process to gain the most accurate temperature profile. A thermal barrier is used to protect it from extreme heat or cold, providing the security needed to ensure that the data logger and any attached sensors can stay operational with no damage to the components.

What the Profile Process Looks Like

For measuring baking parameters for a complete temperature profile, the data logger and relevant Smart Sensors need to run through the entire baking process from start to finish. As you would do with unbaked products, the data logger is placed on the oven’s conveyor belt at the product level and runs through a full-load oven while recording temperature data. Depending on the Smart Sensor being utilized, the data logger will record all oven conditions, heat transfer distribution, and performance metrics. Once the baking cycle is complete, all of the data is compiled into a detailed report that can be used to analyze oven performance.

What used to be a challenging and time-consuming process is simplified and streamlined using Reading Thermal’s data loggers for industrial oven temperature profiling. Our intuitive design makes training for the proper use of our products quick and easy, so you can get back to baking with confidence.
