Anolyte Cell Resources’ Anolyte Temperature Controller is designed to eliminate premature cross- linking of solids in the electrocoat tank, due to excessive temperatures generated by anolyte cells. Cross-linking causes paint buildup on the outside of the anolyte cells. This technology uses a temperature sensor integrated into the ThinCell sensor, which provides isolated data to a standalone controller. The controller displays the operation temperature of the ThinCell in real time, and has adjustable set points used to set the limits of operation for a solenoid and an alarm. With the controller, sensor and the solenoid valve operating in unison, additional flow is directed to the cell, indicating a high temperature reading and enabling the cell to cool to a point where the paint will not cross-link in the tank. This keeps the cell performing at optimal levels without blinding, while reducing dirt build-up in the paint bath, which, in turn, reduces paint waste in the bath, enables chillers to be less labored and provides longer life to bag and UF filters.
