High temperature metrology for industrial applications
(>1000 °C)

The overall objective of this project is to develop a suite of temperature sensing methods and techniques for improving the measurement of high temperature (>1000 °C) in industry in a coherent and comprehensive way. The work will significantly advance the state of the art in high temperature sensing technology for a wide spectrum of EU enterprises.

Current state of the art industrial high temperature measurement by thermocouple or radiation thermometers are both subject to significant application problems.

This JRP will result in significant progress beyond state of the art by:

  • Addressing the four major unresolved problems in industrial radiation thermometry
  • Addressing the unsolved problem of thermocouple drift through in situ self-validation
  • New EU capabilities for the objective characterisation of thermocouples: drift/lifetime/reference functions.
