Combustion Gas Temperature Measurement Using Infrared Pyrometers - Application Summary

HEITRONICS has more than 25 years of experience with all kinds of incineration processes. The HEITRONICS infrared radiation thermometer solution provides unique wavelength responses for CO2 gas emissions, which produces the highest quality measurements. The IR Thermometer is installed outside the furnace and is therefore not exposed to the high temperatures or agressive gases, and is easy to access.  (PDF)

SNCR Operating in the Optimized Temperature Window in a Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) Incinerator

The ammonia consumption of the SNCR (Selective Non-Catalytic Reduction) can be reduced significantly if the injection takes place in the optimum temperature window of 850..1000 oC. The knowledge of the actual temperature distribution within the incineration chamber is a crucial precondition to do this.  (PDF)

Infrared Thermometer Measures Combustion Gas using Focused High Precision Optics to Simplify the Installation

The use of Infrared Radiation Thermometers (also called infrared pyrometers or IRTs) for combustion gas temperature requires a channel or view port with diameter larger than the field of view of the IRT.  (PDF)

Displaying the Temperature Distribution of Gas Temperatures in Combustion Chambers

HEITRONICS TempControl 2.0 displays the thermal distribution of gas temperatures in a combustion chamber, and provides intuitive detection of hot spots and imbalances by graphical image of the temperature distribtuion.  (PDF)

Calibration of the External Temperature Reference Source used in Thermal Image Camera Systems for Detecting People with Elevated Body Temperature

This article discusses calibration and verification of thermal imaging camera ( TIC ) systems installed in 2020 in response to the worldwide spread of COVID-19. The intended use of such systems involves the TIC acquiring the temperature of a person’s skin surface temperature. (PDF)

Press Release: Blackbody Calibration Source ME30 for Infrared Thermometers and Thermal Imaging Cameras

Blackbody Calibration Sources are required to calibrate infrared radiation thermometers and thermal imaging cameras. ME30 will satisfy many requirements including fever/elevated body temperature measuring instruments used,as for example, for COVID-19 virus screening. (PDF)

Introduction to Radiometric Calibration of Thermal Imaging Cameras and Other Infrared Instrumentation

Infrared Calibration Equipment includes two key items: a Blackbody Radiation Source (BBR) and a Reference Thermometer. The Reference Thermometer can be either a Contact Probe or a Transfer Radiation Thermometer (TRT). This article focuses on using a TRT to obtain the best achievable uncertainties via the Scheme II method of calibration.  (PDF)
