In certain thermal processes, heat-sensitive products are essential to control the temperature. Processes such as welding or vulcanization may require checking the temperature in different specific areas of a part or structure. In such a case, using a temperature crayon is the most convenient and reliable way. Applying some strokes on key points before the process starts will allow us to verify their temperature and check the results later on thanks to the permanent change of colour of the drawn lines.
Below is our selection of the best temperature indicating crayons:
Thermal pencil for controlling temperatures. These wax-based pencils with heat-sensitive ink allow to mark any surface, which will change colour depending on the temperature.Heat-sensitive pencil (10 units)
Using these temperature indicating crayons is quite simple, since they are wax crayons that can be applied like chalk on a blackboard. Their wax-based texture makes them suitable for any surface, whether smooth or rough.
The stroke of the heat-sensitive crayon will change colour when it reaches its calibration temperature. Once the thermal process is complete, we can remove the line by sanding over it. A control part or a piece of the same material can also be marked and then discarded after the thermal process as concluded.
One of the most common uses for these temperature crayons is temperature control during welding. The welding of tubes, pipes and metal surfaces requires a specific temperature range, depending on the materials used.
Not reaching the right temperature can create a defective weld, which will lack the necessary consistency. On the other hand, if we exceed the melting temperature to carry out the welding, we may deteriorate the materials and even deform them, causing the defective finish of the welded joint.By using heat-sensitive crayons, you can see the temperature that the welding spot is subjected to. Drawing a single stroke on the area we intend to join is sufficient. When applying heat, we will see the line change colour, so we will know exactly when we have reached the required temperature and, hence, if the welding has been done correctly.
In the vulcanisation of rubber seals, we must verify that the temperature reaches 120 °C to guarantee a correctly executed process.
The vulcanisation of the seals gives them enough hardness to properly serve their hermetic sealing function. This is essential to obtain a quality product.The main question in this type of process is making sure that the product, in this case, the seals, receive the correct temperature. Oven temperature sensors typically measure the temperature reached inside them. However, it is difficult to determine if the temperature is uniform and reaches all areas where there are parts. Since temperature crayons are specifically used on these parts, they can ensure that said parts receive the correct temperature.
