IR temperature probes
Vol. 27 #1, March 2000

Not all IR temperature probes are created equal. Designs with a narrow or selective wave band (Minolta Land) offer some significant process advantages, primarily for films and thin sheet. By using a narrow wave band (8-l4um), most polymers remain opaque to IR, meaning no background interference and not having to worry about the emissivity. Since there is zero transmission, the emissivity for any polymer becomes a constant of 0.96 for certain film thicknesses.
