Application Notes

Here's how some of our customers used this product.

Controlling the Temperature of a Heat Press for Extracting Essential Oils

The Background: The customer, a homeopathic supplier, is making a heat press for extracting essential oils.

The Problem: Extracting essential oils requires very careful temperature control to promote the extraction of the oils without damaging them. As the controller will be paired with a heater, the controller must be capable of handling high amperage. There are only two parameters to control so simplicity and cost-effectiveness are important considerations.

The Solution: The Autonics TC3YT Temperature Controller with a Watlow Cartridge Heater and Watlow Rigid Sheath Thermocouple. The TC3YT can handle up to 16 amps and provides the accuracy and simplicity the customer needs at a great cost.
