Paper Abstract

The industrial use of non-contact temperature-measurement instruments or radiometers began in the 1920's and, for the next sixty years, increased substantially with a major surge occurring during the past ten years. To coin a phrase, "radiometers do not measure temperatures, they solve temperature-measurement problems". Therefore, to solve such problems, Process and Plan engineers must first acquire a basic knowledge of radiometry to be able to correctly match the instrumentation to the specific application. This paper provides some basic principles of radiometry, instrument design features, and application considerations.
