If you are interested in an industrial oven temperature data logger, consider the SCORPION® 2 Profiling System and Data Logger from Reading Thermal and improve your processes and the quality of your baked goods.
Headquartered in Sinking Spring, Pennsylvania, the heat transfer experts at Reading Thermal have been studying, measuring, and understanding the commercial baking process for over 25 years.
The innovative SCORPION® 2 Profiling Systems with Temperature Sensor Array measures, captures, and stores oven temperature profiles so that you can bake your products to perfection.
Why Temperature Profiling is Important?
Product level temperature throughout an oven can make the difference between optimum quality and throughput – and wasteful, under-baked, or burnt product. The process of fermentation, product swelling, moisture evaporation, flavor development, and surface coloring are all time and temperature dependent. For example:
- Too little heat while baking can cause crusts to be brittle or dry,
- Too little heat while baking can create products that are too light in color.
- Too little heat while baking can create a structure that is too dense.
- Too much heat while baking can cause the bottoms of the loaves to burn before the crusts brown correctly.
- Too much heat while baking causes moisture to evaporate too rapidly and the dough to rise unevenly.
If you produce bread, artisan bread, rolls, hamburger buns, cakes, biscuits, or other bread products, you understand that several stages of the process are temperature-dependent, including oven-spring, drying/dehydration, and color formation.
Temperature Sensor Array
The Reading Thermal SCORPION® 2 Temperature Sensor Array is designed to measure temperature at product level, in fixed positions across the conveyor, and delivers a true representation of what your product is experiencing over time.
The sensor array is connected to the SCORPION® 2 Profiling System and Data Logger and travels through the oven with the product (with the oven under full load), producing an exact picture of temperature from side-to-side and end-to-end.
There are 2 types of pluggable temperature sensors. One is an Air/Conveyor sensor that is designed to measure the surface temperature of the conveyor as well as the air temperature directly above the conveyor. This Sensor is designed for solid or tight mesh conveyors and measures air and band temperatures.
The other pluggable temperature sensor is an Air/Air sensor. It is designed to measure upper air temperature immediately above the conveyor, and lower air temperature of the air rising through the conveyor. It is meant for open mesh conveyors.
