Hydraulic and thermal process visualization

D‑System Data Logger

The D‑System is used for sim­ple in-situ vi­su­al­iza­tion of hy­drother­mal process­es in process wa­ter cycles.

In our Sys­tem Cen­ter for In­dus­tri­al Tem­per­a­ture Con­trol Tech­nol­o­gy (SIT), which has been in ex­is­tence since 2020, you will have the op­por­tu­ni­ty to get to know – and ex­ten­sive­ly test – our lat­est in­no­va­tions in the field of tar­get­ed tem­per­a­ture con­trol of molds and process me­dia as well as se­mi-fin­ished prod­ucts and prod­ucts made of plastic.

In situ visualization of hydrothermal processes in process water cycles with the D-System.

hotset’s D‑System is a mo­bile and flex­i­ble mea­sur­ing de­vice for a quick on-site analy­sis of the en­er­gy bal­ance in tech­ni­cal wa­ter cy­cles. Wher­ev­er wa­ter is in cir­cu­la­tion as a func­tion­al medi­um,  the flow rates, tem­per­a­ture curves and pres­sure dif­fer­ences can be checked and vi­su­al­ized promptly.

The da­ta log­ger con­sists of a com­pact mea­sur­ing mod­ule and a col­or 7‑inch touch screen – a com­bi­na­tion which cov­ers a wide range of ap­pli­ca­tions. You can use it for trou­bleshoot­ing, fine-tun­ing flu­id pow­er process­es, qual­i­ty as­sur­ance, and many oth­er ap­pli­ca­tions which use wa­ter as a coolant and heat­ing medi­um, as a trans­port and hy­draulic flu­id, as an op­er­at­ing and dri­ve medi­um, or as a fu­el component.

The sys­tem pro­vides you with all need­ed da­ta for qual­i­fied eval­u­a­tions of the en­er­gy flows in your wa­ter cir­cuits. Its sen­sors de­ter­mine the flow­ing wa­ter vol­ume, the sup­ply and re­turn tem­per­a­ture ∆T as well as the sup­ply and re­turn pres­sure ∆P. Based on this, all rel­e­vant pro­gres­sions that char­ac­ter­ize the wa­ter cir­cuit of your process or sys­tem in terms of en­er­gy are cal­cu­lat­ed and dis­played graphically.

With the D‑System, you can store, doc­u­ment and rec­on­cile all record­ed in­for­ma­tion at in­ter­vals. W‑LAN and LAN in­ter­faces sup­port both the con­ve­nient net­work con­nec­tion of the da­ta log­ger and PC or smart­phone ac­cess to the vi­su­al­ized mea­sure­ment da­ta of its touch screen. All process­es can be logged and syn­chro­nized, and lim­it vi­o­la­tions are al­so dis­played. You can op­er­ate your D‑System via 230-volt mains con­nec­tion or in bat­tery mode.

Process optimization and quality assurance

The D-System as a measurement and visualization tool is used, for example, in the inspection and design of water circuits in injection molds, in cold water hydraulics, heating technology or drive technology.

In the en­tire field of wa­ter flu­id tech­nol­o­gy, the D‑System serves as a flex­i­ble mea­sure­ment and vi­su­al­iza­tion tool for process op­ti­miza­tion and qual­i­ty as­sur­ance. Thus, it is used, for ex­am­ple, for check­ing and de­sign­ing the wa­ter cir­cuits in the tem­per­a­ture con­trol sys­tems of the cav­i­ties of in­jec­tion molds. It can al­so be used in cold wa­ter hy­draulics, heat­ing tech­nol­o­gy or dri­ve technology.

Re-Engineering and Retrofitting

In the con­text of con­tin­u­ous im­prove­ment process­es (CIP), hotset’s D‑System can be used for medi­um- or long-term track­ing of the hy­drother­mal de­vel­op­ment of wa­ter cy­cles in process plants. Dur­ing re-en­gi­neer­ing or retro­fitting, it en­ables the rapid iden­ti­fi­ca­tion of mod­ern­iza­tion po­ten­tials and the tar­get­ed lo­ca­tion of pa­ra­me­ters to be optimized.

Maintenance and repair

The D‑System can be used for MRO ap­pli­ca­tions (Main­te­nance, Re­pairs, Op­er­a­tion) across all in­dus­tries as a mo­bile and lo­ca­tion-in­de­pen­dent ser­vice tool. It al­so proves to be an ex­treme­ly prac­ti­cal mea­sur­ing and test­ing tool for fault de­tec­tion in the con­text of pre­dic­tive mon­i­tor­ing — i.e. pre­ven­tive main­te­nance — of flu­id tech­nol­o­gy process­es. Thanks to its sim­ple han­dling and op­er­a­tion, the ef­fort re­quired for the main­te­nance and re­pair of wa­ter tech­nol­o­gy cir­cuits can be sig­nif­i­cant­ly re­duced with the D‑System.
