MEASURING THE TEMPERATURE OF REFORMER TUBE SURFACES
Various non-contact infrared methods are used to measure reformer tube temperatures. However, these measurements rely on the accurate determination of tube surface emissivity and require a method of compensating for reflections from the hotter surrounding furnace environment. Depending on how the furnace is fired, you may experience interference to these measurements caused by “dirty” furnace atmospheres.
OUR SOLUTION IS THE GOLD CUP PYROMETER
The AMETEK Land “ Gold Cup Thermometer” is the only instrument that can provide a repeatable, reliable reference temperature. It cancels out all the inherent errors typically found within other infrared thermometer devices. This instrument consists of a gold cup hemispherical reflector. This Gold cup reflector produces a measurement area, which is emissivity independent when placed upon the surface, making it ideal for unknown emissivity tubes.
