Hand Held Pyrometer
Vol. 25 #1, May 1998

Needle probe pyrometers are very useful when you run a new resin for the first time.

Use a hand held melt temperature probe at the screw discharge, at normal production rates, to record melt temperature. This will relate to the baseline reference with the new temperature profile and/or resin.
