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

Temperature measurements above 1000 °C are difficult to make but necessary for many industries such as aerospace and steel production. As industries cannot accurately measure these high temperatures, they often run processes too hot and therefore operate inefficiently. By developing a range of measurement methods, accurate at high temperatures, this project will enable more efficient operation of industrial processes, reduced energy use and lower greenhouse gas emissions. The project will focus on both ‘in situ’ techniques, where measurement devices are located directly in the environment being measured, as well as non-contact techniques that can take measurements without directly exposing devices to the high temperatures involved.
