Mini Infrared Thermometer for Film
Ever more developers and manufacturers of plastic film rely on noncontact temperature measurement for the continually improving performance capabilities of their parts (e. g. injection molding, extrusion and bonded parts). By using modern infrared temperature measuring devices, the thermal behavior can be determined rapidly and the process optimized without affecting either the process or the product.
During production of plastic film in particular, the temperature is a critical physical quantity for determining the quality. The use of noncontact temperature measuring techniques is accompanied by the challenge that films less than 1 mm in thickness are transparent for standard IR thermometers so that the temperature cannot be measured. Optris GmbH, Berlin, Germany, has developed the Optrics CT P3 infrared thermometer intended for precise temperature measurement of thin PE or PP film. A narrow spectrum range of 3.43 μm is used for measurement. The miniaturized pyrometer in its rugged housing can be used without cooling in environments up to 75 °C. The electronics is separate from the sensor head and has easily accessible programming buttons as well as an illuminated liquid crystal display. Analog as well as digital outputs are available.
