New Ratio Pyrometer for Mid Temperature Range

IGAR 320, an affordable IR ratio pyrometer

Santa Clara, CA, USA – LumaSense Technologies, Inc. has announced the release of the IGAR 320 two-color pyrometer for non-contact measurement of industrial processes such as metal processing as well as vacuum processes and laser applications.

“This new product provides non-contact temperature measurement in ratio mode in a relative low temperature range,” explains Daniel Schueftan, LumaSense’s global product manager for pyrometers.

“It is based on our well-established Series 320 and is an affordable solution for some extended applications.”

The pyrometer measures using the ratio (2-color) method, in which two adjacent wavelengths are used for the temperature determination. (more…)

Keeping Transformers Online

How do you currently monitor your transformers?

blog_banner_infographic_transformersSanta Clara CA, USA?? –?? Transformers are getting older and electricity demands are expected to increase by 19% over the next 10 years.

Monitoring transformers and keeping them online is essential to meeting increasing demands with older equipment.

Traditionally, transformers are monitored with manual methods such as manual samples and manual analysis.

Using sensors with intelligence allows utility managers to monitor transformers daily from afar. (more…)

Monitoring Float Glass Production Temps

Accurate and precise temperature measurement is critical

Float glass productionSanta Clara CA, USA — There are over 200 float glass production plants worldwide. They produce over 60 million tons (about 7.5 billion square meters) of flat glass annually!

But float glass production can be expensive due to the high cost of transportation and energy required for glass melting (often up to 1700 ??C). In order to reduce costs, these plants tend to be regionally distributed to minimize the high costs of transportation and tend to operate continuously to minimize losses. (more…)
