High dynamic temperature control systems for laboratories

Louise Smyth

JULABO’s new PRESTO models W50 and W50t provide a high dynamic temperature control system that can handle temperature ranges of -50°C to +250°C.

Covering such an extremely broad temperature range means that the equipment is well-suited for demanding temperature applications such as reactors, mini-plants, pilot plants, material testing stands, micro-reactors, and material and component tests in the auto industry, for example. The new water-cooled PRESTO models are available in two versions: the W50 and the W50T with increased heating capacity. Both models cover an extremely broad working temperature range, from -50°C to +250°C.

The PRESTO W50 provides a heating capacity of 6kW, while the W50t provides double the heating capacity at 12kW. Both instruments have a cooling capacity of up to 7.5kW. They are suited for compensating exothermic and endothermic reactions extremely quickly and have rapid heat-up and cool-down times.

High-performance, maintenance free pumps deliver up to 3.2bar or 76l/min. Both models guarantee high flow rates at constant pressure and can interactively compensate changes in the viscosity of the tempering medium.

The integrated 5.7-in industrial colour touchscreen of the new PRESTO provides high functionality and intuitive user guidance. Clear and well structured displays for values and graphics, all important information at a glance, detailed and easily understandable warning and help texts - these are just some of the advantages. Extensive interfaces allow flexible usage, such as control and regulation via USB interface, data logging via USB or SD Card, integration in process bus solutions (ie, Profibus), remote control via Ethernet networks or wireless control through JULABO’s WirelessTEMP application.
