A temperature chamber, whether heated container or a cold room, provides an environment in which the temperature is controlled and stabilised at the required level. This means the substances stored within are kept at a consistent temperature, which can be for safe storage reasons, or to maintain the substance at the best temperature for introduction into a manufacturing or testing process.
Temperature containers can either provided heated storage or cooled storage, depending on the needs of the particular material and process.
Hot boxes or cold chambers are an energy efficient and safe way to store and process potentially hazardous materials.
Why do I need climate controlled storage?
Two key reasons to use thermotechnology, either as a heated chamber or a cold room, are: safety and efficiency.
Hazardous and volatile substances often need to be stored at specific and consistent temperatures in order to keep them as safe as possible.
Hot boxes and cold rooms also provide energy efficient temperature controlled environments for hazardous substances. This means that the materials are introduced into the manufacturing process at the best temperature possible, for example this would mean that a substance is at the correct level of viscosity or there is no crystallisation present.
Cost-efficiencies can also be achieved through on-site hot boxes and cold rooms as bringing your climate controlled storage in-house can reduce costs of external storage and transport suppliers.
Are hot boxes, heated containers and cold rooms industry specific?
Heated containers and cold storage units can be used across a wide range of industries and in different situations. This can range from food producers, pharmaceuticals, printing and a wide range of manufacturing processes.
Thermotechnology is used for tasks such as:
Reducing viscosity to improve pumping or filling processes
Melting solids for process feed
Temperature control of substances to they are ready at the optimum working temperature
Avoiding crystallisation of flocculation of hazardous materials
Storing temperature-sensitive materials safely
Avoiding thermal reactions, e.g. with organic peroxides
What climate controlled storage options are available?
DENIOS UK offers a wide range of thermotechnology products for maintaining required storage temperatures.
One of the world's leading developers and manufacturers of speciality chemicals produces high-quality raw materials, auxiliary materials, additives and active substances which are used in almost all industrial sectors and consumer goods. For a treatment process, water-polluting and flammable chemical substances are heated in a heat chamber for further processing and fed into the production process with an increased viscosity. The process plant no longer met the current requirements and had to be replaced.
The airline company Qatar Airways has emergency slips like any other airline. These are exposed to great temperature fluctuations. Therefore, DENIOS climatic chambers were tested for possible deviations of the material. The DENIOS product thus contributed actively to the flight safety of the desert state.
Digital process support through networking to a control system high priority for this DENIOS customer. They were also looking for an effective solution that included a complete automation of thermal stock preparation. In response DENIOS has developed a fully automatic heating chamber. This is designed as a continuous tunnel with several levels and individually heatable heating aisles.
