Impac Pyrometers - non contact infrared temperature measurement sensors
Impac Pyrometers are well known for their high accuracy and dependability in providing non-contact measurement of temperature for all types of applications including the harshest environments. Infrared thermometers or pyrometers measure the infrared radiation emitted from a hot object and provide a precise temperature reading.
The key benefit in using an infrared thermometer, or pyrometer, to measure temperature is that there is no contact with the surface being measured. This is especially useful on moving objects or where traditional contact methods are impractical or may influence the temperature of the object being measured. Measuring molten steel, which would normally melt traditional thermocouples, is a good example. Impac pyrometers provide a wide selection of highly accurate infrared thermometers for non-contact measurement of temperature that are designed for use in all types of industrial applications where accuracy and reliable measurement is required. These instruments are suitable for use in the steel, glass, cement, ceramic, forge, furnace, kiln, plastic and many other industries. The range includes products optimised for use for specific applications or industries and includes a broad selection of single colour and two colour (ratio) pyrometers. Models are available to measures objects and processes in the temperatures in the range of -32°C to +3500°C. A wide range of accessories is available including water cooling jackets and air purge adjustable mounting brackets to provide a complete solution no matter what the application. The selection includes handheld portable and fibre optic pyrometers for use in vacuum, medical or extreme environmental conditions.

When rebuilding one of our clamshell furnaces we opted for four Impac ISR 6 pyrometers for precise temperature measurement. I am very impressed with the quality of every component from the cooling jackets to the sensors themselves, which seem exceptionally well made. I would not hesitate to contact LIMAB in the future for any other applications that I may need help/equipment for.
