Making Smart Investments in Non-Contact Temperature Measurement Technology

Integrating new measuring technology, such as devices and systems for non-contact temperature measurement in industrial processes, requires careful consideration of the instruments and systems selected for the respective application. Unfortunately, some decisions are often made based on the price of the instrument or system, which can have serious consequences for the process and long-term costs.

Making Smart Investments - Manfred HaykTo ensure reliable and accurate measurement, the selection of high-quality measurement systems and sensors is essential. These systems and sensors provide a reliable measurement solution in a wide range of industries and applications, while also ensuring 24/7 operation in the harshest industrial environments. In addition to providing, processing, and documenting measurement data, these systems help to increase process reliability, control and continuously monitor industrial processes, and improve overall efficiency.

When selecting the most suitable measuring system, various criteria come into play, such as the appropriate temperature measurement range and spectral range of the pyrometer, scanner or thermal imager. The measurement accuracy and reproducibility of the measurement are also crucial decision-making criteria. Many thousands of instruments and installations have been in reliable use worldwide for decades in harsh industrial environments such as temperature measurement in melting and heating furnaces, temperature measurement of liquid metals in the casting and melting process, or scanners in hot rolling mills.

Making Smart Investments - Manfred HaykCost savings are another important criterion for selecting the best measuring system. Reliable and high-quality measurement technology helps to reduce resources such as fuel and energy consumption, minimize maintenance and repair costs, and reduce emissions and greenhouse gases, leading to sustainable cost optimizations and savings. Investments in high-quality non-contact temperature measurement technology and systems typically lead to complete amortization within a very short time.

Increasing process and environmental safety is also a key consideration in selecting reliable, non-contact measurement technology. Thermal imagingMaking Smart Investments - Manfred Hayk cameras and systems can detect emerging hot spots on industrial furnaces at an early stage, preventing critical breakdowns and allowing for cheaper preventive repairs. Additionally, such systems help to ensure the safety of staff and operators on site.

In conclusion, the investment and associated costs in high-quality non-contact temperature measurement technology and systems should always be considered in close context to the requirements of the respective application and processes. This includes suitability and reliability of the measurement systems, potential for process optimization and monitoring, cost savings for energy and fuel, extended maintenance intervals, and professional support and worldwide services.
