Application: Temperature control for two diamond turning enclosures..
- Praecis ATCU-9™.
- Two commercial diamond turning enclosures.
- Air distribution system that includes porous fabric "mattress" behind metal perforated panel on back wall of each enclosure.
The customer wanted to control the temperature in two enclosures using a single ATCU.
An ATCU-9 was connected via ducting to both enclosures. Using Praecis-developed software, the operator, using the touch screen display, can designate the critical point in either of the two enclosures, making one ‘master’ and one ‘slave.' The operator can switch to between the enclosures at any time.
What made this solution possible was the location of the two machines adjacent to one another in the same environment. While variations in temperature in the ‘slave’ enclosure were expected to be better than the local environment, the user was cautioned that performance in the slave would not equal that in the master—and that disturbances in the master (such as opening the door) could cause even greater temperature excursions in the slave.
The result was satisfactory for the customer yielding
- 1.8 x 1.8 x 2.0 m
(W x D x H) (Exterior dimension).
- 1.8 x 1.8 x 1.0 m
(W x D x H) (Inside dimension).
- Footprint: 3.24 m².
- Volume: 5.0 m³.
- Air Velocity: 0.15 m/sec.
