Expanded line of Thermal-Tab™ RTD's from MINCO

A Thermal-TabTM RTD consists of a highly stable platinum or nickel resistance temperature detector (RTD) packaged in a low-cost flat body. The sensor is completely insulated and has rugged Teflon insulated leadwires in a standard length of 40 inches (1 meter).

Minco's family of Thermal-Tabs now includes models for higher temperature (260ºC/500ºF), fluid immersion, easy bolt-on mounting, and high sensitivity using 10,000 ohm platinum elements. In addition to platinum, most models are available with nickel curves to U.S. or DIN standards.

Many variations are available from stock for immediate shipment.

World's first dual zone control 1/32 DIN control from LOVE Controls!

The 32DZ Series temperature / process controls set a new standard in 1/32 DIN power, flexibility, and value.  Love Controls is proud to be the creator of the world’s first dual zone control in the 1/32 DIN size. This addition to the Love family of controls offers the highest levels of features at an economical price. Ease of use is assured from the creators of the world’s first dual display 1/32 DIN temperature /process control.

The 32DZ offers a semi-universal input (10 thermocouple types in one of two groups, an RTD type, and voltage and current types). Each zone offers a single set point with mechanical relay, 5 VDC pulsed output, or AC SSR. One of the two outputs may be a proportional 4 to 20 mA output that may be assigned to either zone 1 or zone 2. Standard features include independent Fuzzy Logic, Self-tune, and Peak/Valley indication for each zone. Process protection is provided by open sensor protection, shorted sensor protection, input rate of change protection, and loop break protection.

Options for the 32DZ include RS-485 Serial Communication and low voltage operation.  Designed and built in the USA, the 32DZ family of controls offers the highest levels of features, function, and quality available today.

MINCO All-Polyimide Heaters Operate to 260ºC

New Thermofoil™ heaters from Minco combine Kapton® insulation with polyimide adhesive to achieve a temperature rating of 260ºC (482ºF) — 50ºC higher than previously possible with Kapton heaters and 15ºC higher than silicone rubber heaters. The new construction, called "AP", allows 50% more power — 80 watts per square inch (13 watts per square centimeter) — for faster warm-up and rapid response to changing heat loads. The result is higher throughput in many thermal processes.

AP heaters are suitable for vacuum use with outgassing less than 0.01% collected volatile condensable material. They stand up to most processing and cleaning chemicals, making them an excellent choice for ultra-pure processes. Applications include semiconductor processing and test, avionics, packaging equipment, and graphics processors.

Heaters may be clamped to heat sinks or factory bonded with polyimide adhesives for complete thermal subassemblies.

Options include integral temperature sensors and flex-circuit interconnects. Heat patterns can be uniform or custom profiled for the specific application. Profiling adds extra heat at loss points to improve the uniformity of the temperature across the heater.
