GreCon EASYLOG

GreCon EASYLOG

Data logger for the wireless temperature measurement when pressing thin plates

The EASYLOG is a wireless sensor with which the temperature of the mat is recorded during pressing. Minimum panel thicknesses from 0.39 in [10 mm].

Optimize your pressing process by measuring the development of the mat temperature in any position within your press.

Benefits at a glance

  • Information on the curing of the resin in the panel (reaching of the 212 °F [100 °C] threshold in any position)
  • Short start-up times of wood based panel productions
  • Optimization of existing press programs
  • Recipe adaptations in record time
  • Detection of influences of upstream and downstream processes
  • Low construction height (0.098 in [2.5 mm])
  • Suitable for panels of more than 0.39 in [10 mm] thickness
  • Temperature measurement during cooling, conditioning, sanding, coating
  • Measurement of 24 hours

Measuring method

Optimize your pressing process by measuring the development of the mat temperature in any position within your press. The EASYLOG is a wireless sensor with which the temperature of the mat is recorded during pressing. Minimum panel thicknesses from 0.39 in [10 mm].The temperature measurement provides information on the curing of the resin in the mat and enables you to optimize the press program for your individual recipes. Reach a core layer temperature of 212 °F [100 °C] as soon as possible! Immediately detect the effects of optimization measures on the quality of your products. The effects of changes in surface or core layer moisture, glue structure, particle size, raw density and other parameters can be immediately checked. Even the influence by surface spraying, preheating systems, transport speeds and other upstream processes quickly become apparent. The temperature can also be measured in downstream processes, such as cooling, conditioning, sanding and coating, by using long-life batteries and programmable measuring phases. Reduce the start-up time of your press by checking the heat transfer to the core layer of your products in any position. Control the data loggers intuitively using “touch" with a tablet PC. The tablet PC can be used for both EASYLOG and CONTILOG data loggers. After leaving the press, the measured data is wirelessly read out with a reader. The data can be transferred to a PC for evaluation using a USB stick.

Measuring Procedure

  • Placement of the logger in the core layer of the wood based mat
  • Marking of the logger‘s position on the mat edge
  • Continuous measurement of gas pressure and temperature while running through the hot press
  • Synchronize measurement with press inlet and outlet
  • Wireless read-out of the data logger
