Thermogulating units are an ensemble of machineries aimed to the precise and fine thermoregulation of the temperature in a process industry.
They are indeed usually combined with systems producing heat and/or cold, while accurately regulating the output temperature of the fluid that will serve the production process.
There are also autonomous units, for small power capacities, that comes integrated with the heating equipment, using electric armored resistors, and the cooling circuit, with dedicated chillers.
There are several different possible options offering lots of variants, making thermoregulating units a highly flexible solution, while the fluids that they can work with are essentially defined by the working conditions required:
Usually, thermoregulating units are designed with one or two temperature levels:
For some particular production processes, a triple level management of the temperature is required:
It is virtually possible to obtain endless temperature levels, even though industrial processes don’t usually have that kind of need.
In some particular applications, temperature regulation requirements are achieved using electronic thermoregulation systems, that mix the effects of several working fluids in order to obtain the desired temperature.
These systems can be locally or remotely managed by a PLC and others sophisticated systems, aiming to achieve more complex and precise heating or cooling ramps, required in particularly delicate production processes (such as in pharmaceuticals production or in the food industry).
