Understanding Field of View

IRt/c’s are rated optically for their field-of-view by the actual dimensional equations describing their construction. However, there are, in practice, some secondary effects that can influence performance,

Bread and Pastry Dough Mixing Temperature

 Measuring the temperature of bread and pastry dough while mixing is difficult at best with conventional contact thermocouple probes, due to breakage and possible contamination of the food. However, the temperature is quite important since too high a temperature will cause too much rise, leading to holes in the baked product, and too low a …

Non-Contact Dough Measurement

Measuring the temperature of bread and pastry dough while mixing is important since too high a temperature will cause too much rise, resulting in holes in the baked product, and too low a temperature will not allow the dough to rise sufficiently, resulting in a baked product that is flat.

To all Exergen Industrial Distributors and Customers:

First, we hope you continue to be safe and healthy. It’s been a trying 2 months, and it’s not over yet. On March 31, Charlie Baker, the governor of the state of Massachusetts, extended the order requiring all “nonessential” businesses in the state to close or operate remotely until May 4, 2020. This is a …

Exergen Global Announces IR Sensor Accuracy or 0.1 Degree of 0.1 C with New AutoSmart Transmitter IRT/C Sensor Line

The AutoSmart Transmitters not only delivers accuracy that is 10 times better than standards on infrared sensors with the same output, it also provides repeatability of ± 0.01% °C.

An Update From Us on COVID-19

On March 23rd, Charlie Baker, the governor of the state of Massachusetts placed an order requiring all “nonessential” businesses in the state to close or operate remotely.

Increasing Safety, Reliability and Speed for Diagnostic, Skin, and Medical Treatments

For processes such as diagnostic procedures, skin treatments and medical interventions where blood or saline solutions are involved, temperature monitoring and control are essential in the success and reliability of the procedure. Employing IRt/c technology increases the speed and reliability of the procedures while assuring patient safety.

Controlling Vacuum Forming and Thermoforming Processes

For forming plastics, radiant heat with an IRt/c is an excellent combination of heating method and control. They work extraordinarily well together since both the heating and measuring occur right at the surface, where the plastic is located. The IRt/c reading is unaffected by reflections from the heater since the spectral response of the 6 to 14-micron IRt/c lens filters out the shorter wavelengths of the radiant heater energy.

Exergen Global Announces Sensoranics Methodology

Exergen Global today introduced its Sensoranics Methodology, a unique, proprietary, integrated approach to developing best-in-class infrared temperature sensor solutions for complex production processes across all industries.

IRT/C Monitors Plastic Injection Mold Clearing

In high volume plastic injection molding machinery, a molded part that does not clear the mold can cause serious problems, including a long downtime to clean up or make repairs. A particularly useful property of the mold is its shininess, which means low emissivity. Accordingly, the infrared radiation from an open mold is primarily reflected …

Blow Molding

When a set temperature is reached, the preform is moved to the blow molding section of the machine, it is molded in the shape by applying pressurized air.

Why Color Does Not Affect Readings

In many IRt/c installations, such as paint curing, web drying, printing, etc., the temperature control system must be able to accurately measure materials with a variety of colors. Ideally the same calibration set-up would be used for all colors, rather than calibrating each time a new color is run. Because the IRt/c measures the radiated …

Clean Air Purge for microIRt/c’s

The Challenge Infrared temperature sensors are ideally suited for use in manufacturing, textiles, printing and other production settings. They provide a highly effective solution to ensure machinery does not overheat or otherwise malfunction. Oil, thread, dust, airborne chemicals and other debris emitted during production can quickly obscure the IR temperature sensing heads.  The smallest amount …
