A large manufacturing company of pharmaceutical and food processing machinery was looking for a solution to measure the surface temperature of objects without touching them. The Raytek Compact MI3 sensor was the ideal fix as it provided accurate, fast measurements at different distances from the surface.

Imagine an undiagnosed hot spot in your plant. It may signify a weakened asset surface, prior to equipment failure. It might adversely affect your food recipes or pharma processes, resulting in bad product batches. Or even worse, it might be due to improperly grounded current, something which puts the safety of your workers at immediate risk.

When analyzing any cement manufacturing process, it is evident that one of the most critical steps takes place in the rotary kiln. When it comes to extending the life of this piece of equipment, as well as preventing any disastrous failures, it is imperative that operators understand the condition of the refractory material coating it. Since it is impossible to measure the inside of the kiln, looking at the outer surface is the only way to determine refractory condition. This can be accomplished with infrared technology and specially developed kiln scanning systems.

Fire and ice, hot and cold – elemental extremes have always fascinated and challenged people. Various techniques and devices have been used throughout time to accurately measure and compare temperature conditions. For example, in the early days of ceramics manufacture, meltable materials were used, which indicated through deformation that certain higher temperatures were reached.

Emissivity is the measure of an object's ability to emit infrared energy. Emitted energy indicates the temperature of the object. Emissivity can have a value from 0 (shiny mirror) to 1.0 (blackbody). Most organic, painted, or oxidized surfaces have emissivity values close to 0.95. Majority of Fluke Process Instruments sensors have adjustable emissivity feature to ensure accuracy when measuring other materials such as shiny metals.

An infrared (IR) thermometer is a sensor that determines the temperature of an object by detecting and quantifying the infrared radiation emitted by measured target. An IR thermometer can be compared to the human eye. The lens of the eye represents the optics through which the radiation (flow of photons) from the object reaches the photosensitive layer (retina) via the atmosphere.
