Reading Thermal, a Reading Bakery Systems brand, was founded in 1999 with the philosophy that innovation should be simple, reliable, and accessible. A team of experts in heat transfer developed the SCORPION® Data Logging Measurement System with these directives in mind.
The SCORPION® idea was first conceived by Fylde Thermal Engineering of Macclesfield, England, back in 1988. At that time a 16 channel data logger and a temperature array was the complete system, with data analysis performed by an early version of MS Excel. Today the SCORPION® 2 is a complete hardware/software measurement system, with a 32 input channel data logger and a group of compatible sensors helping process engineers, quality control engineers, and oven manufactures understand the four key parameters in any thermal process: 1) Temperature [Air, Band, & Product Core], 2) Air Velocity, 3) Energy Transfer, and 4) Humidity.
With an eye on customer needs, Reading Thermal developed the SCORPION® Profiling Service to help customers solve baking, drying, and cooling problems. And to help bring customers in compliance with OSHA regulations the Oven Safety Inspection Program was developed.
