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.
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.
