Ametek Land has revealed an innovation that enables remotely controlled alignment of a Spot pyrometer for industrial processing applications.
Some pyrometer manufacturers do not recommend their instruments be used in cold weather, but with EDL's Pocket-Probe Extended Range Pyrometer you are guaranteed smooth functioning even in temperatures as low as -30[degrees] C.
SPOT pyrometers from AMETEK Land are designed for simple installation, configuration and flexible design.
For metalcasting facilities using handheld pyrometers, it is critical to understand the furnace temperature profile, because some furnaces will continue to climb in temperature even after the combustion and blowers have been turned off.

Hand-held surface pyrometers read temperatures up to 600 F without touching heat source.
"Hoyt has been manufacturing analog pyrometers for over 75 years and is currently expanding its meter line," said Joseph Legerstee, sales manager at Hoyt.
One error source of is the use of the radiance temperature rather than the absolute temperature to calibrate the pyrometer. The radiance temperature of a test surface is equivalent to the temperature of a perfectly radiating surface (e.g., blackbody, [epsilon) = 1) with the same radiant intensity as the test surface at a specified wavelength.
Various other accessories are available including tissue temperature monitoring devices or pyrometer thermocouple systems.
Measurement and control of temperature are available to industrial processors with the company's infrared radiation pyrometers. Where traditional measurement techniques cannot be used, for example in severe environments or under difficult operating conditions, such as high speed processing or fast-changing system temperatures, infrared instruments are said to precisely determine temperature without contact, according to the manufacturer.
Conveyorized systems, indexing systems, and stationary drawer systems heat reinforced composites and other plastics prior to stamp-forming and include optical pyrometers, multizone heater banks, and computerized self-teaching controls.
