Applications

The use of Sensortherm pyrometers is always in demand when processes should be monitored and optimized. A continuous temperature monitoring with pyrometer or thermovision camera enables the detection of temperature variations in order to produce a high quality end product.

The material to be measured determines the pyrometer’s spectral range, the mentioned applications lead to a pyrometer recommendation. Consult us for your application or for complicated measurement tasks.


Pyrometers for Laser Process Control and Temperature Control

Pyrometers for Laser Process Control and Temperature ControlPyrometers with an integrated controller measure the temperature and thus control a given temperature level at the same time. The controlled laser power ensures a consistent quality of the processed material, even where changes of laser beam delivery would cause discontinuities in temperatures (read more…).

Induction Heating

Pyrometer in combination with a PID Program Controller RegulusA pyrometer in combination with a PID Program Controller Regulus provides the fastest and most efficient method to rapidly detect temperature variations on inductively heated components and directly set a 0-10 V manipulated variable for controlling the high-frequency generator.

 Metis M318 with temperature ranges from 120°C, 1 ms response time, spot sizes from 0.7 mm with focusable optics and laser targeting light for alignment.


Pouring Stream Monitoring

Intelligent Pyrometers with pouring stream mode for pouring stream monitoringIntelligent pyrometers with pouring stream mode automatically detect the entire casting process and provide an average temperature of the complete cast. Disturbances such as hot slag spillings or drop at the beginning or end of the casting are automatically detected and eliminated from the final temperature. Thus, the cast monitoring ensures a consistent quality assessment of the end product.

 M311 2-color pyrometers with pouring stream mode are non-sensitive to dust and smoke and easy to align.
 Heavy Duty measuring systems are designed for very harsh environments and can be used with different pyrometer models.


Rolling mills, continuous casting plants,…

Heavy-duty measuring system for rolling mills, continuous casting plants etc.The heavy-duty measuring system in heavy stainless steel construction is designed for continuous temperature measurements in rolling mills, continuous casting plants and similarly harsh industrial conditions. The system is optimally adapted to the application conditions in the steel industry. The optics system is designed for ambient temperatures up to 250°C, the purge air provides additional cooling and keeps the optics tube and thus the pyrometer’s sighting field free from contamination. The electronics of the measuring system is mounted in up to 30 meters in a protected position.

Glass Gob Measurement

Thermovision camera for  non-contact temperature measurement of glass gobsShort-wave infrared measurement devices are capable of detecting the glass temperature slightly below the surface. Thus, the measurement is not affected by a possibly cooled surface and is easy to evaluate. The measurement of the temperature distribution of glass gobs allows the optimization of heating processes.

MV09 thermovision camera in a short-wave spectral range


Temperature Profile Measurement

Highspeed pyrometer for non-contact temperature measurement of fast-moving partsHigh-speed pyrometers are able to create a detailed temperature profile from quickly passing parts. Using slower devices, detailed information is smoothed and does not allow an evaluation of important information. For example, it is thus possible to draw conclusions about different material thicknesses.
