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.

Infrared temperature sensors are commonly used in industry to control aspects of the process such as heaters, cooling systems and line speed. One of the simplest ways to measure temperature without contact and obtain a control output is to use a Calex PyroCouple pyrometer and a low-cost indicating controller such as the ATR121. Here’s how.

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. 

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.
