Paper Abstract

In this paper, the radiative properties of Brown fused alumina are discussed within 8 - 14 micrometers and at temperatures of 40 degree(s)C, 50 degree(s)C, and 70 degree(s)C. The measurement principle and the formula for determination of the normal emissivity are also given. An IR emission (radiation) measurement instrument (Type IRE-1) is employed to carry out the experiments. A series of sandpapers made of Brown fused alumina with grain size (grit) ranging from 40 to micrometers to 250 micrometers are selected to do this research. It is indicated that, for Brown fused alumina, the normal spectral emissivity has a maximum value at about 8.55 micrometers in 8 - 14 micrometers waveband, and the emissivities decrease while the grain size decrease at a certain temperature and increase while the temperature goes up.
