The new, highly precise miniature logger records detailed temperature profiles of monoblock processes.

Fluke Process Instruments has developed a miniature monitoring solution for monoblock cure processes. The DATAPAQ MonoPaq2 system profiles the metal temperature of coated aluminum bottles, aerosols, and collapsible tubes both in IBO and OBO lines. The thermal barrier measures merely 41 x 48 x 195 mm, making it 43% smaller by volume than the preceding generation. The temperature profiling system can be used in lines with very closely spaced pins (greater than 45 mm) and with various product basket sizes. This engineering success is primarily based on the development of a new data logger with a minimal footprint. The new DATAPAQ Q18 logger connects four thermocouples via micro-miniature sockets and logs up to 32,000 readings per channel with an adjustable interval of 0.05 s or more. Its accuracy of ±0.5 °C puts it squarely in the class of the best available loggers.

Downloaded to a PC or notebook, the thermal profile can be reviewed with the DATAPAQ Insight software, which includes versatile visualization, analysis, and reporting functions. Manufacturers can thereby optimize their oven settings and ensure that every product experiences the specified time at temperature. Regular monitoring is facilitated by the compact size and light weight of the system. Mounting brackets are available in different versions for quick and secure attachment in any line layout.
