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 […]

Infrared Fixation on Large Format Printers

General Information Flags, carpet, tiles and everything else that is printed on Large Format Printers with protective paint needs to be completely dried, cured or fixated before the end-products can be cut, folded, or otherwise worked on. Depending on the paint, most of the inks are water-based and short- or middle wavelength IR lamps can […]

How the Pit Viper Measures Infrared Radiation

Like the IRt/c Infrared Thermocouple, the pit viper has the ability to “see” infrared radiation. Pit vipers comprise a family of snakes that share a sophisticated thermal adaptation that stems from the evolution of specialized pit organs located near their eyes.

Exergen Global’s Temperature Sensor Ensures Safety, Efficiency for Ablation System

Measuring Blood Temperature in Perfusion Systems

To ensure that the correct blood temperature is maintained from start to finish, the amount of heat applied to the blood must be tightly controlled and be adjusted to the flow and inlet temperature of the donor blood.

Non-Contact Heat Sealing Temperature Control for Packaging Machinery with IRt/c’s

IRt/c infrared thermocouples can accurately control the temperature of rotating and moving stainless steel heaters common in the packaging industry, without touching the heaters.  Typically, uncoated stainless steel heaters are difficult for IR sensors to measure reliably because of reflected infrared signals that can change after a heater surface is cleaned. The solution to this […]

Vacuum Sealing Packing Machines

We like our food to be as fresh as can be. Vacuum-Sealing packaging can extend the shelf life of food products by preventing exposure to the natural atmosphere, thereby slowing down the microbial deterioration of the product.

Tips & Tricks in the IR Market

Infrared temperature sensors or IR Sensors function in a similar way: they detect infrared radiation and convert it into a signal to process. Only infrared temperature sensors don't pick up the visible light.

Through the Looking Glass

The Story of Alice’s Quest for Emissivity “It’s all done with mirrors!’’ “What do I see when I look in my mirror?” asked Alice. “I see myself, of course.” “But what about the mirror why can’t I see the mirror itself” she pondered. “Maybe it’s because the mirror is invisible? Na, if it were, I […]

Speeding Up Offset, Digital, Inkjet Drying Processes

The surface temperature of a “wet” substrate will change (rise) very slowly as constant heat is applied to the product. This occurs because the moisture in the substrate absorbs much of the heat energy as it evaporates.

Exergen’s Non-Contact Sensors Protect Equipment Using Flanged Inline Heaters

A large electric air heating solutions company needed a very fast thermal management solution to prevent overheating of the air heater element used in its flanged inline heaters. The heaters are employed in industrial processing and R&D settings and are built to handle a wide range of extremely demanding process heat applications.
