7.1 degrees, the sweet spot.

Posted on March 25, 2009

In this spring season the Maple trees provide us with a great example of the importance of temperature through the process of producing Maple syrup. 


From Ohio State University, the North American Maple Syrup Producers Manual, bulletin # 856 explains the relationship between the sugar concentration and the boiling point of Maple syrup.  The target concentration is 66% which happens to boil at exactly 7.1F above the boiling point of pure water (at the altitude where the process is taking place.)  I didn't realize the precision involved with boiling sap into syrup.


Thanks to Bill B. at Burns for discovering this sweet example of how temperature plays a role in product quality, even if the process is taking place in your back yard.  For more info on Maple Syrup, visit this Wikipedia page.


As you know, It's all about the temperature!

Interphex 2009 preparations….

Posted on March 5, 2009

The activity level around Burns Engineering as we prepare for Interphex in New York is buzzing. interphex09.jpg The story we are excited to share is not about Sanitary RTDs,  electro-polished surfaces, or tri-clamp flanges.  It's more about clean-ability, responsiveness and accuracy.  The real conversation is about temperature measurements that achieve confidence and compliance with an improved understanding of the interaction of the sensor and the process.


That's the stuff that brings calm to the crazy and helps you get in your zone.


The mantra is:  Temperature measurement in a context that the users understand and care about.  Help the process owners be heroes of their process.interphex_home1.jpg


Visit the Burns Interphex page and catch a glimpse of what's happening in booth #3205.  We'd love to chat about making you a hero!


At Burns, Temperature is our Language!


See you at Interphex!


The Burns Team.
