Accurate and reliable temperature measurement is necessary for the efficient production of steel and steel mill products. Many steel processing operations such as continuous casting, hot rolling and continuous annealing require the use of non- contact temperature measurement devices because the product moves and cannot be measured by contact means. This paper reviews the requirements for non-contact temperature measurement in several common steel industry processing operations and presents examples of the benefits derived from the introduction of line scanning temperature sensors to these processes.
