The lens of every infrared temperature sensor must be kept clean and dry to ensure the pyrometer has a clear view of the target. The simplest way to do this is to purge the lens continuously with clean air, preventing dust and moisture from reaching it. Here is how to use the air purge collar.
Calex has achieved success in measuring the surface temperature of extruded aluminium profiles using low-cost non-contact pyrometers. Measurements were taken by a leading manufacturer of extruded profiles at the press exit and after the quench, and good results were obtained with short-wavelength single-wavelength pyrometers, even with significant steam near the quench box.
The new multi-channel temperature measurement software, CalexSoft 2, is now available as a beta release.
Most infrared temperature sensors have an adjustable emissivity setting. Here’s how to use this powerful feature to achieve accurate measurements from a variety of surfaces.
Non-contact temperature measurement is now possible in areas of high ambient temperature with no need for sensor cooling using air or water. This brings several benefits, including cost reduction, better safety, and improved product quality in manufacturing processes.
Measuring the temperature of reflective metals is a challenge. Reflective surfaces, hot furnaces and high ambient temperatures can make it difficult to achieve accurate results with non-contact sensors. The new FibreMini fibre-optic pyrometer from Calex has innovative features that are specialised for accurate measurements in this industry.
