Applications of radiation thermometers

Electronic Devices

Temperature management for copying machines

Periodic measurements will prevent sudden breakdowns beforehand as well as being able to identify abnormal parts when abnormality occurs. 

Useful when: 

Aberrant heating inside the copying machine may lead to mechanical failure or may cause burn injury by touching the heated part. 

Benefits

Temperature measurement of places that may heat up can quickly be done by non-contact measurement.

Automobiles

Temperature management for automobile painting processes

Measure the temperature in the drying process and control it so that it becomes the optimum temperature and time in order to improve quality by the time it finishes.  

Useful when: 

The drying temperature differs according to the paint so it can be controlled through actual measurement. 

Benefits

Temperature measurement can be done without touching the body of the car.

Applicable model example

IT-480N/W


Endurance test for tires

Temperature change can be recorded during tests. Tires that are rotating can be measured as the radiation thermometers are non-contact. It has quick response speed so not a slight change will be missed.

Useful when: 

The temperature of tires that are rotating cannot be measured with contact type radiation thermometers. 

Benefits

The temperature of the rotating tire itself can be measured with non-contact radiation thermometers. It is also useful for experiments related to changes of tire temperature and fuel consumption.

Food related

Temperature management for candies and etc.

Quality will improve by measuring the temperature of each process such as kneading. As it is non-contact, sanitary aspects are not a problem.  

Useful when: 

The temperature of the sample itself cannot be measured with a contact type thermometer as the mixer is rotating during the kneading process.

Benefits

Quality will improve by measuring the rotating sample itself with non-contact radiation thermometers.  

Applicable model example

IT-480F/P


Temperature management for sake, miso, soy sauce and etc.

Quality such as taste and fragrance will improve by controlling the fermentation temperature.

Useful when: 

Accurate measurement of temperature is important, as temperature during fermentation influences the quality of the product.

Benefits

Hygienic temperature measurement is possible with non-contact radiation thermometers.

User example

・Sasaki Sake Brewery

Applicable model example

IT-480N/W

IT-545N


Temperature management for cookies, bread and etc.

Control the temperature of each process such as cooling process of dough, baking in the oven and etc. No hygienic problem as it is non-contact and improve quality. 

Useful when: 

Measure the temperature of each product to prevent underdone and overdone cooking.

Benefits

Hygienic temperature measurement is possible with non-contact radiation thermometers. 

Applicable model example

IT-480N/W


Temperature management for roasting processes such as tea etc.

Measure the temperature during the roasting process continuously. Controlling the roasting temperature and time of different types is possible. 

Useful when: 

As the roaster is rotating during the process, measuring the temperature of the sample itself is not possible. 

Benefits

Quality will improve as radiation thermometers can measure the temperature of the rotating sample itself without contact.

Rubber / Resin

Temperature management in the process of kneading rubber

Rubber mastication is an important process for rubber. Quality will improve by temperature management. 

Useful when: 

The temperature of the sample itself cannot be measured with contact type radiation thermometers as the mixer is rotating during the mastication process.

Benefits

Quality will improve as radiation thermometers can measure the temperature of the rotating sample itself without contact.

Applicable model example

IT-480N/W


Temperature management for the process of producing tires

In the process of compression molding of tires, the durability greatly differs due to heating temperature and time. Quality will improve and produce homogenize products by controlling the temperature. 

Useful when:

In the process of compression molding, managing only time is not enough. Temperature control of the tire is needed as the temperature inside the factory differs in summer and winter. 

Benefits

Temperature measurement from a certain distance is possible without contact. Quality will become stable by optimizing the machining time.

Applicable model example

IT-480F/P


Temperature check during injection molding

Temperature measurement of the product after molding can be done instantly. Quality will improve as well as product stability. 

Useful when: 

The temperature and the machining temperature of the resin greatly influences the quality during resin molding. Therefore, measurement of optimum temperature is needed. 

Benefits

Quality will improve by measuring the temperature of the molded product right after processing.

Equipment maintenance

Surface temperature check for pipes

Check for abnormal heating or cooling. Radiation thermometers can check any places and prevent accidents. 

Useful when: 

Temperature of widely spread pipes installed in factories can be easily measured.

Benefits

Abnormal temperature of pipes will be detected and prevent deterioration. 

Applicable model example

IT-545N


Abnormal temperature check for electrical facilities

No need to worry about getting shocked as it is non-contact. Periodic measurement will prevent breakdown and factory fire caused by electric leakage. 

Useful when:
