Temperature Monitoring in Construction Materials

Ceramics and Kiln Firing

Ceramics and bricks are fired in a kiln at temperatures up to 1200°C/2200°F. The entire process can take up to several days from entry to exit, as the product travels through cycles of drying, pre-heating, firing and cooling.
