HiE-Coat 840-C is a high-temperature, high-emissivity blackbody coating used for installations of gas-fired, refractory-fiber-insulated furnaces to improve thermal efficiency for applications to 2500°F.
Companies that manufacture parts for
the automotive industry have to produce products that have very high quality.
There can be no defective parts delivered to the factory, and, of course, the
automotive companies want the lowest price, fastest delivery and a record of
the quality tests.
Obtaining accurate temperature
readings in a high-temperature application is difficult. Thermocouples and
pyrometers have advantages and disadvantages. This article will address the use
of pyrometers in applications where the need for accurate and precise thermometry
In this issue focusing on new and emerging technologies, we shall speak to recent advances in the relatively old field of pyrometry. There is little information on the invention and development of pyrometers compared to better-known instruments. Common problems that often made pyrometers inapplicable in many situations now have convenient answers.
The following article discusses how recent advancements in noncontact IR temperature measurement not only help induction heat treaters optimize their production processes and business results, but also enable them to meet industry standards defining guidelines for final product quality and reliability.
High-emissivity coating systems have long been recognized as products that can improve energy efficiency and product quality when applied to the refractory linings of industrial furnaces. Such products have been available for over two decades. However, the limited service temperature of some of them, loss of coating in service due to thermal expansion mismatches between the coating and the substrate, and misapplication have prevented these energy-saving products from being widely accepted.
The March 2019 issue of Industrial Heating includes an editorial piece on the most viewed heat and corrosion resistant materials articles. Other features include "The Intersection of 3D Printing and Machine Learning", "Generating Hydrogen for Thermal Processing and Coatings", and much more.
