Book Temperature Control Technology: Theory and practice

We are happy to support schools and training centres by sharing our profound expertise and through comprehensive consulting. We draw on our experience of 50 years of development and training.


The temperature is an important process parameter in many processing operations. This applies in particular to the plastics-processing industry. Here it is often necessary to add or remove heat from moulds and machine components. The present book intends to highlight the correlations and dependencies in industrial temperature control so as to increase the understanding of temperature control technology and to better understand its typical processes. Since HB-Therm temperature control units are mainly used in this field, many of the examples that are given come from this particular area of application. Of course, the basic physical principles are also valid in other applications. The contents are suitable for a wide variety of readers. In addition to information on equipment technology there are also tables with material properties and process values as well as details on various applications.
