  • Heat treatment at low pressures

    High temperature vacuum furnaces are used for heat treatment of samples at low pressure (down to 10-6 mbar) and under partial gas atmospheres. In the bottom loader version the bottom is lowered and driven out of the furnace. It then pivots forward to permit easy loading. This design makes the useable volume accessible from all sides and allows for exact placement of the sample thermocouples which ...

  • Pyrometers improve quality and yield in silicon growth

    Temperature control has always been one of the most critical parameters in optimizing many complicated solar photovoltaic manufacturing processes because it plays an important role in producing higher-quality product and increasing overall yield.

  • AMETEK Land - Industrial Heating - Process Thermal Imaging in the Modern Hot-Rolling Mill

    Single-point radiation thermometers are installed at a distance, and they view the infrared radiation that is emitted by the target object. Their noncontact nature allows them to operate out of harm’s way. Because they don’t touch the surface, they can accurately measure moving objects, whereas thermocouples suffer from a frictional effect, generating heat and eroding the ...
