Temperature mapping for enclosures

Enclosure thermal mapping = temperature distribution in open or closed chamber

Definition of the most suitable equipment and measurement protocol

Control of the repeatability of your equipment

Identification of the location of the cold and hot spots

Aim of the temperature mapping:

The enclosure temperature mapping of a cooking cell or a pasteurization tunnel identifies the cold / hot spots of your equipment. This also gives you the range of temperature dispersion of the equipment and confirms or denies the possibility of using it.
The use of a large number of loggers makes it possible to qualify the temperature distribution, the repeatability of the cycle as well as the impact of the load and its variations.
The study is aimed at all kinds of thermal equipment whose function is to provide cooking, or product stability by pasteurization, cooking or even sterilization (see Retort thermal mapping information).
All the measures are included in a clear and detailed report to meet the expectations of your clients (certifiers, large retailers, players in the food industry).
Axitherm uses different sensor technologies to ensure that you always use the one that is best suited to your equipment.

Application example

On-site evaluation of a cooking cell:
– Identification of the machine park using the same energy networks.
– Verification of areas deemed “critical” of the cell.
Test phase:
– Optimized distribution of loggers on different levels (= thermal mapping of the enclosure).
– Reading of temperatures and location of cold and hot spots.
– Repeat the measurement.
Validation process:
– Protocol customization possible.
– Measurement of two consecutive cycles under critical load.
– Reading and interpretation of the values obtained.
