TPS Rebrands and Upgrades Lunaire Steady State/Stability Chamber

WHITE DEER, PA--(Marketwire - October 6, 2010) -  Thermal Product Solutions (TPS), a division of SPX Corporation, recently announced it is consolidating the Lunaire and Blue M brands into a single Blue M brand.

The first product to be consolidated is the Lunaire CEO series of environmental temperature and humidity test chambers. The CEO chambers will become the Blue M CEO series of environmental test chambers.

The CEO chambers are available in four sizes, with workspace sizes of 8, 16, 32 and 58 cubic feet and in a variety of temperature and humidity combinations.

Upgraded Controller
The Blue M CEO temperature and humidity test chambers will be upgraded to include the programmable Watlow F4 controller. The Watlow F4 controller allows remote and unattended operation in setting up programs and setpoints. The F4 also allows easy control over both temperature and humidity settings in one controller, in up to 40 profiles and 256 steps. The controller can also be used in a non-ramping, manual mode.

The Watlow F4 controller provides serial communications capabilities via the EIA-232 and EIA-485 standards with the Modbus RTU protocol and can print directly to a serial printer, connect to a PLC, or connect to a computer workstation.

The controller features a high definition, LCD display with four digital input lines. The Watlow F4 also includes 2 alarm outputs and eight digital event outputs.

Improved Design
The new design allows TPS to ship chambers specific to the customer's needs in far less time than previous product lines.

Customers with several CEO chambers, even if different sizes, now have consistent controls, utility requirements, and heat output, so plant management issues are greatly reduced. Installation has also been improved with the addition of new combination casters / leveling legs.

The CEO series of environmental temperature and humidity chambers are commonly used for the following applications: International Committee of Harmonization (ICH) applications, accelerated shelf life studies, steady state testing, stability testing, burn-in, curing, controlled temperature storage, clean room processes, and bio-medical research.

The TPS family of brands includes Blue M, Tenney, Gruenberg, LindbergMPH and Kayex. As part of SPX Corp., a Fortune-500 company, TPS has emerged as a global leader in the design and manufacture of industrial ovens, environmental simulation, heat treating, photovoltaic and pharmaceutical equipment.
