Calex non-contact infrared temperature sensors are ideally suited for use in food processing and manufacturing industries, as they can be used without contaminating or disturbing the product. The sensors have a very fast response time and can accurately measure the surface temperature of food substances moving on a conveyor belt, in vats with stirrers and … Continue reading Non-Contact Infrared Sensors in the Food Processing Industry

Calex infrared temperature sensors are ideal for accurate temperature measurements in corrugated cardboard manufacturing

Calex non-contact infrared temperature sensors are now being used with excellent results by leading manufacturers of corrugated cardboard worldwide. Here’s how.

Many of our infrared temperature sensors have a feature called Peak or Valley Hold Processing. What does this feature do, and when should you use it?

Calex normally recommends using a short-wavelength infrared temperature sensor to measure the temperature of metals, instead of a general-purpose type, because it is more accurate. But why is it more accurate? Here are the reasons. 

How do you know if your infrared temperature sensor is aimed correctly? Here are some easy ways to improve the alignment of your pyrometer.

Advancements in the Calex product range make it easier than ever to measure the temperature of busbar joints in switchgear cabinets.

Measuring the temperature of plastic preforms in blow moulding applications is easy with Calex infrared temperature sensors. An accurate measurement can be obtained as fast as 1 millisecond, even from the smallest preform, without touching the preform.

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 PyroCAN is a simple non-contact infrared temperature sensor with CAN Bus communications. Connect this low-cost pyrometer directly to your CAN network for instantaneous temperature readings from inaccessible or moving surfaces.

Thick plastics are non-reflective to infrared radiation, so they are usually easy to measure with infrared temperature sensors. Thin plastic films can transmit IR, and a specialised sensor is sometimes required for accurate results. Calex has suitable pyrometers for measuring plastics in many industrial applications. Thermoforming Temperature measurement in thermoforming is easy and straightforward with non-contact … Continue reading Infrared Temperature Measurement in the Plastics Industry
