Paper Abstract

At Sira, a number of pyrometers have been evaluated, both portable and fixed installation, covering the temperature range 50 to 1200°C. Performance testing pyrometers of the radiation type requires accurate and stable black body sources covering the temperature range of interest and having a sufficiently large aperature for the particular instrument undergoing evaluation. The same equipment may be used for optical (disappearing filament) pyrometers, although special test lamps are available at lower cost if this is the only type of pyrometer to be considered. The paper describes tests carried out at Sira during the course of several evaluations and the problems encountered.
