Summary

Radiant methods of temperature measurement are especially useful for many ceramic processes. However, errors can be serious if the instrument is improperly selected or if the principles of radiant heat transfer are incorrectly applied. This paper provides a brief overview of the principles of radiant heat transfer and the design of common instruments for application to ceramic processes.
