Geil DD-1 RP Controller
 
This is an upgrade of the DD-1 Controller. The DD-1 is a high limit, on-off solid state electronic controller with a digital read out and digital set point temperature from 0 to 2500F. When the controller is set at the High Limit position, it will automatically shut the kiln off at the set point temperature. The on-off position functions as a soaking controller, holding the temperature at the set point temperature plus or minus 5 degrees. The DD-1 RP Controller has additional features of a single ramp to set point temperature and soak and a proportional control.

Geil  Microprocessor Programmable Temperature Controller

Details 

Full proportional control, minimum four Ramp/Soak segments and Auto/Manual Control. The PYX controller is the main controller of the system, responsible for the time and temperature of a kiln firing. It reads the temperature by means of a thermocouple mounted on the back wall protruding into the interior of the kiln. The PYX reads the temperature via the thermocouple. It then processes the pre-programmed information (ie: ramp soak segments) and adjusts the output signal to the proportioning valve. Depending on the call for heat form the PYX, the proportioning valve will vary the amount of gas reaching the burners. The output signal is shown as a percent in the OUT1 parameter. By programming the PYX parameters with time and temperature, the kiln can be fired by ramping to a set point in a particular time. This ramp time plus a soak time is one segment. The PYX contains four ramp soak segments making up what is called a firing profile. This profile is stored in the microprocessor's non-volatile memory. The PYX contains two operating modes, AUTO and MANUAL. This pre-programmed profile is operated by the AUTO mode. The kiln can also be fired manually by the PYX controller. Manual firing can be used to perform a reduction.

Geil Automatic Damper System

Details 

The microprocessor controller is the main controller of the system, responsible for time, temperature and atmosphere of a kiln firing. It reads the temperature by means of a thermocouple mounted on the back wall protruding into the interior of the kiln. The microprocessor then processes the pre-programmed parameters (ramp & soak segments) and adjusts the output signal to the proportioning valve located on the valve train. Depending on the call for heat from the microprocessor, the proportioning valve will vary the amount of gas reaching the burners. The kiln is also equipped with an oxygen probe located just below the thermocouple. Reading the atmosphere of the kiln via the oxygen probe, the microprocessor sends a signal to the damper motor which then adjusts the damper automatically to control the atmosphere. By programming the microprocessor's parameters with time and temperature, the kiln can be fired by ramping to a set point within a particular time frame. This ramp time plus a soak time is one segment. The microprocessor contains four ramp soak segments making up what is called a firing profile. This profile is stored in the microprocessor's non-volatile memory. The microprocessor contains two operating modes, AUTO and MANUAL. These pre-programmed firing profiles can be operated by the AUTO mode. The kiln can also be fired manually by the microprocessor controller. Our auto-damper system is PC controlled using a windows based program that is very easy to operate and hook up. All the parameters from the controller are displayed on your computer screen, making it easier to update and change your firing profiles. The program takes about 5 megabytes of space on your hard disk. There are no major upgrades needed for you to install and connect the microprocessor program. The microprocessor program offers remote station firing capabilities. The microprocessor controller is equipped with a high limit alarm. The high limit alarm will shut the kiln down once the kiln hits the high limit temperature. The damper is automatically closed to prevent any thermal shock. lf there is any disruption of gas or flame failure, the flame safety system will automatically shut the kiln down. Our auto-damper system is backed by a CSA (Canadian Standard Association) certification meeting the required safety standards for gas appliances. A thermocouple is a temperature reading devise made up of two dissimilar metals that when heated produce a thermoelectric current. The speed of the current increases as the temperature increases.
