  • Measurement of temperature gradients through local extinction using Raman scattering spectroscopy

    Measurements of temperature in laminar flames with localised extinction points were made using line imaging of spectrally resolved laser Raman scattering through the extinction process. A fit to the nitrogen scattering spectrum was used to determine temperature with an accuracy of 30 K. Temperature gradients through the extinction process were measured as the flame strength prior to extinction ...

  • Sonic temperature significance and limitations

    The ATI sonic thermometer measures temperature from transit times t1 and t2 measured along the vertical path of the anemometer's probe. They are the times taken by sound pulses to traverse the 15-cm acoustic path in opposite directions; (these same transit times are used also for computing the vertical wind component). The instrument exploits the strong dependence that exists between the speed ...

  • AMETEK Land ‘Aluminium International Today’ – Non-contact Temperature Measurement for Extrusions

    Richard Gagg, Industry Manager - Metals, AMETEK Land discusses advances in non-contact temperature measurement for aluminium extruders. While aluminium extrusions are common, the process of extruding high-quality profiles is far from easy. Understanding temperature and controlling press speed and quench rates during the extrusion process are critical to producing products that have ...

  • Online flow measurement

    Background The undershoot weir in Hohensaaten was built in 1913. It has three openings and regulates the discharge from the Oderbruch and from the Finow canal into the Hohensaaten-Friedrichsthaler-waterway. Moreover, it protects parts of the Oderbruch against Oder floods. The weir controls the waterlevels in the Havel-Oder-waterway and in the reach of Niederfinow- Hohensaaten. ...

  • Measuring level by weight

    Measuring level or inventory by weight provides high accuracy. The weight is not affected by ingredients that foam or settle unevenly or by changes in density or the shape of the tank. Weight is weight, regardless of percent solids, bridging, rat-holing, or whether your ingredient is conductive or sound-absorbing. Because weighing is a noncontact method of measuring level, there is no chance of ...

  • Measurement of moisture in HBr

    Introduction Moisture in corrosive gases will accelerate the rate of metal corrosion in gas supply systems which, in turn, can lead to their premature failure. For this reason, it is important to monitor moisture levels in these gases. FTIR is an effective way to monitor for moisture in these corrosive gases. In order to determine low levels of moisture in corrosive gases, it is ...
