Infrared thermometer optris CTlaser MT for temperature measurement through flames

The infrared thermometer optris CTlaser MT offers a special measuring wavelength for precise temperature measurement through flames of 200 °C to 1,650 °C. It is thus perfectly suited for surveillance of work pieces in ovens, for measurements in chemical reactors and for testing of refractory linings in kilns.

The stainless steel measuring head with its highly precise double laser visor allows for exact marking of measurement spots in any distance at any time. The temperature of even the smallest objects with a size of only 1.6 mm can be easily measured with the IR thermometer.

Areas of application for the infrared thermometer optris CTlaser MT

The two-part IR thermometer CTlaser MT succeeds where most other pyrometers fail: in measuring temperatures through glass and flames.

This feature makes it especially interesting for industrial high-temperature applications with temperatures up to 1,650°C and it is thus employed in e.g. surveillance of metallic work pieces in ovens, measurements in chemical reactors, or temperature controls of refractory linings in kilns.

Infrared software optris Compact Connect included

The temperature analysis software optris Compact Connect has been developed specifically for the extensive documentation and analysis of temperature measurement data of our stationary infrared thermometers. It is license-free and included in every pyrometer shipment.
