Aluminum Infrared Temperature Sensor

Aluminum and other non-ferrous metals pose a real problem when it comes to temperature measurement. These non-greybody materials have a low emissivity that varies by wavelength, which makes accurate and repeatable temperature measurements nearly impossible with traditional single-wavelength and ratio pyrometer technologies. If you’re looking for a reliable aluminum infrared temperature sensor solution, multi-wavelength technologies are far better suited for the application.

Williamson offers multi-wavelength pyrometers with application-specific algorithms. Designed specifically for your aluminum application, these algorithms automatically adjust and compensate for varying emissivity conditions, meaning you get accurate and reliable results. Ultimately, this leads to better temperature and quality control—and better product.

Because aluminum is a difficult material to measure, it is vital that you select the right pyrometer for your application, whatever that may be. Whether you are looking for an aluminum infrared temperature sensor for applications in the rolling mill, forging, foundry, or other aluminum processes, Williamson has the solution for you. Explore the following applications and see why Williamson pyrometers are the perfect fit for your aluminum processes.

MWx-AB - Aluminum Billets

MWx technology accurately measures high temperature billets where MW technology falls short. MWx pyrometer only works when looking at the side of the billet. No specific algorithm or offset is required – MWx-AB works across all alloys. Pyrometer output is set for 400-1100°F (200-600°C), but will only measure temperatures down to 575°F/300°C.
