Roller Hearth System (TS27/TS07)

Roller Hearth System (TS07/TS27)

Developed for ceramic applications monitoring the thermal profile of the ware, as it is fired in the roller hearth kiln. It operates without trailing thermocouples and travels, over ceramic rollers, through the kiln with the ware continually monitoring and storing the temperatures of the clay body and the environment. This allows you to check critical areas of the process, such as heating and cooling rates and the temperature differential cross the thickness of the product.

Thermal Barrier TS27

The TS27 Thermal Barrier range has been designed specifically for firing applications where space is limited yet thermal protection is required for an extended time. Employing an evaporative water technology, the high temperature Data Logger is kept at a safe 100 °C through the process. The low height achieved with the TS27 range is perfect for low height roller hearth kilns. The barrier sits on a ceramic bat and travels safely through the kiln riding across the ceramic rollers.

Thermal Barrier TS07

Developed for high temperature long duration firing processes. Manufactured from the highest specification material and using graded insulation layers, the TS07 range accepts 10 and 20 channel Data Loggers and is designed for repeated use at temperatures up to 1300°C. This high-performance thermal barrier technology is ideal for high temperature roller hearth kilns processing larger ware with peak temperatures at over 1200 °C and total process times of typically 8 hours.

2-Way RF Telemetry

Due to the length of the firing process real time process monitoring can be desirable. Provided with the PhoenixTM system a two-way RF telemetry option offers the ability to monitor live process data direct from the kiln. Having a real time view of the product or kiln temperature at any moment allowing instantaneous identification of process problems and mid run process adjustments. The unique two-way communication protocol also allows full control of the data logger in process, permitting even remote start, stop, reset and download operations. The powerful network protocol used with the RF telemetry system allows remote repeater units to be positioned along the length of the Kin. Signal transfer along the repeater chain allows successful data transfer out of the kiln back to the monitoring PC / control room, possibly located a significant distance from the kiln. The repeater units are battery operated and wireless allowing them to be freely and easily positioned and moved to optimize performance without major infrastructure modifications and costs.


Complementing the Roller Hearth system, the Thermal View Plus software package provides full set-up of the PTM1200 data logger, review analysis and reporting of the firing temperature profile. The software also allows real time RF telemetry monitoring capability. With the powerful process template feature user defined kiln zones and kiln features can be created displaying how the temperature profile changes in each unique phase of the firing process.

For Kiln firing applications Type K, N, B, R and S thermocouples in 1.5, 2 or 3mm diameter with miniature or standard thermocouple plugs can be provided

All Phoenix TM thermocouples are manufactured using the highest quality materials and conform to ANSI MC96.1 special limits specification. For type K, mineral insulated thermocouples are generally the first choice. The thermocouples wires are insulated by magnesium oxide and protected by a high-grade alloy sheath. For special applications we can supply thermocouples with other insulation materials.
