These guys design burner systems for those of you that can't. Largely they package existing technology from other companies but if you don't know how and you want to pass inspection, call em up.

Infinite range controllers and elements. Other hot things that give electric shocks also available.

Digitry offers controllers that will handles up to five furnaces at a time. Their users are fiercely loyal. I consider the units to be a bit pricey, around $1500.00 , especially considering how the prices have collapsed on single "ramp and Soak " units. I think they are worthwhile in a facility where equipment is totally stationary. If you move things around at all, the wiring gets sloppy. Also, if the unit goes out, everything in the shop goes down. But, like I said, people love them.

I love these people. They have a 16 ramp controller at 1/16th DIN for $180.00 The manual sucks on how to wire it but they work great! Some people have complained that they are hard to program but I don't have trouble and I am electronically challenged. The electrical connectors could be stronger.
Get their catalogue. They also have cheap monometers ( air pressure) and flow meters for Gas that are really useful if you like pinpoint accuracy- which you need to make color.
The downside is that they are really slow. It took two weeks for me to get a bottle of manometer fluid.

Silicon carbide elements, Molybdinum disilicide elements and all the stuff to stick them together.
They will design systems for you to build electric units and sell and service the equipment as well.

Omega is kind of pricey but they are fast. I have never had trouble with them backing up what they sell. Tech support is adequate. If you need it tomorrow, call them.
