For many years now we are performing temperature measurement test at heating and heat treatment furnaces with our own measurement equipment.
The results of a temperature measurment test provide information on thermal behaviour of an industrial furnace. Therefore, such measurements will often be performed in following cases:
Performing a temperature measurement test a heating stock (e. g. slab, ingot, billet, plate) will be prepared with thermocouples at previously determined positions.
While in the furnace the heating stock temperatures will be continuously measured by thermocouples and recorded in a data logger.
The measured data serve as an examination of heating process and conclusions regarding constructive conditions, heating and control technology of the furnace can be drawn.
With regard to measurement setup two types of temperature measurement tests are known:
