Temp Measurements for Steel & Primary Metals:

Understanding when thermal imaging is more cost effective than multiple pyrometers
LumaSense Webinar (Luminar?): Thursday, September 29th | 11 am – 12 ET

luminar2-092011_email_gss_header

In this webinar series, you will learn how infrared technology helps engineers decide which instruments are best for individual process steps and how accurate temperature data can influence the bottom line.

With energy prices at all-time high, the cost of doing business has increased. Steel and metal manufacturers need the right tools to optimize energy usage and control production.

Without accurate, dependable and repeatable non-contact temperature measurement, plant operators risk costly reheats or poor product quality. (more…)

Goddard Space Center –?? NASA and NOAA satellites were watching the low pressure System 98L in the central Atlantic yesterday when it was 1450 miles east of the Leeward Islands.

On Sept. 20, 2011 at 4:11 p.m. NASA’s Aqua satellite flew over System 98L before it became a tropical storm. An infrared image from the Atmospheric Infrared Sounder instrument onboard showed System 98L’s strongest thunderstorms and coldest cloud tops (colder than -63 ??F/-52 ??C) were banded north and south of the center of circulation.

Those bands of thunderstorms were a sign that the low pressure area was organizing and strengthening. (more…)
