The Advantages of Infrared Pyrometers, How Infrared Pyrometers Work, Where & Why Wavelength Matters, and Pyrometer Technologies

Temperature is commonly measured in manufacturing operations to monitor and control product quality and process productivity. Many applications use contact devices like thermocouples and RTDs, but all too often these devices are inaccurate, too slow, difficult to use, or require frequent replacement creating process downtime and reducing productivity. For many applications, infrared pyrometers are the perfect solution because they can accurately and reliably measure a target’s temperature without contact.

This brochure provides an excellent basic understanding of how infrared pyrometry works, different techniques for measuring temperature, and several types of industrial pyrometer.
