temp-gard pro - The temp-gard temperature recorder systems measure and save object and air temperature during the cure process. Documentation and analysis of temperature profiles is made easy with the included temp-chart software. BYK-Gardner offers a complete line of oven recorders, which allow you to control and optimize your baking process - independent of paint system or measurement points.

The large color LCD display allows setting the measurement parameters directly on the logger and the temperature profile of all connected probes is displayed on the screen. Two standard AA Alkaline batteries ensure a long battery life. USB interfaces provide quick and easy data transfer to the PC. The certified high accuracy guarantees long-term reliable results.

The high-performance thermal barrier is compact and light weight with magnetically attached cooling elements. The thermal characteristics were designed with a temperature buffer to be safe for all common coatings - waterborne, solventborne or powder - up to 2 hours at 250°C. The robust stainless steel housing is easy to clean and its rounded corners provides ergonomic handling.

temp-gard basic - The temp-gard basic temperature recorder system consists of a small logger with a large, easy-to-read color display, a robust yet light weight thermal barrier and temp-chart basic software for fast and easy Pass/Fail data analysis. The ideal solution for industrial coating applications: all you need to control and optimize your baking process.

The thermal barrier is robust, yet compact and easy to carry. The thermal characteristics are designed with a temperature buffer to be safe for all common coatings - waterborne, solventborne or powder - up to 2 hours at 250°C. The robust anodized aluminum housing is chemical resistant and its cooling elements are handy.

Easy Data Analysis temp-chart basic offers all essential parameters for analysis and optimization of your curing process. The use of Organizers standardizes the measurement analysis. Based on the curing conditions of your coating system the Pass/Fail analysis will show when the Cure Index or other critical values were exceeded. Measurement reports are user definable.

temp-chart pro


Professional Documentation and Analysis of your Curing Process - temp-chart pro is an easy-to-use software for documentation and analysis of the temperature profile. temp-chart was developed in close cooperation with leading automotive manufacturers. To analyze the curing data measured with temp-gard, tempchart will merge the temperature data with oven parameters and analysis criteria to generate a temperature profile. Data will be stored in a database for professional documentation and easy access. The oven process can be optimized with means of the BYK-Gardner Cure Index and Cure Chart.

Organizer Set-up - standardize measurement and sample labeling - Organizers facilitate the setup of measurement parameters and the sample identification, like the number and name of probes, measuring frequency, duration time and starting modes. Product schematics help to define specific sampling procedures. Sensor names can be merged for long term trend comparison. The entered information can be used for filtering or arrangement of the measured data saved in the database. Typical identifiers are name, date and title.

Speed up your QC with defined procedures - Complete your curing process analysis with a click. Predefined QC procedures can be assigned to an organizer for automatic data analysis after data transfer.

  • Curing conditions - duration time at specific temperature levels
  • Oven specifications - speed, zone numbers, oven length
  • Tolerance curves or Pass/Fail conditions with traffic light indication or highlighted fail values for analysis at a glance.

Additionally, the Cure Chart analysis quickly determines the efficiency ot the curing process and which temperature sensors have met the cure conditions.

Data analysis - Detailed measurement reports - Depending on your needs, temp-chart offers a variety of measurement reports. The user can define the protocol content: Graphic with temperature profile and upper/lower limits

  • Cure Chart analysis
  • Data table with Pass/Fail info based on user defined parameters
  • Product schematics and process information
