Hard lessons learned from the 2020 pandemic taught us that we needed to rebuild and re-establish our U.S. supply-chain ecosystem. The systemic shock to our global supply chains left us with bottlenecks, shortages and an acute awareness of our overdependence on imports.
The CT 4M high-speed pyrometer measures within the spectral range of 2.2 μm to 6.0 μm, making it ideal for low-temperature measurements on metals, metal oxides, ceramics or for materials with an unknown or changing emissivity.
Here is a complete list of all the feature articles – by topic – that appeared in Industrial Heating in 2020. The month each article appeared in is included. All articles are hyperlinked for your convenience.
The MWIR-B-640 mid-wavelength borescope is designed for furnace applications. It enables highly accurate and fully radiometric temperature measurement image data to be taken, stored and trended over the lifetime of the furnace, providing a continuous and clear view – even through heavy smoke and hot atmospheres.
Designed to combine the latest advances in vacuum metrology with exceptional manufacturing quality, VACTEST vacuum measurement equipment provides an innovative and comprehensive portfolio of active vacuum gauges and controllers.
Heating with fuel-fired burners is the most effective and cost-efficient heating method. Personnel safety, production equipment protection and maintaining production schedules are all best served by understanding safety requirements. NFPA is the consensus safety authority.
Watlow, a designer and manufacturer of complete thermal systems, signed a definitive agreement to sell to Tinicum L.P., a private-equity firm. The deal is expected to close as quickly as reasonably possible pending receipt of customary regulatory approvals. Watlow’s products include a range of industrial heaters, thermocouples, RTDs, power controllers and data loggers. The company’s headquarters will remain in St. Louis, Mo.
Designed for use by the steel, metals, industrial furnace and ceramic industries, versatile PSC-55N series pyrometers are ideal for precise temperature measurements from 392-5432°F (200-3000°C) and operate in the shortwave spectral range with fast, adjustable response time of 5 milliseconds to reduce or compensate for changes in target or surface emissivity.
