The precise measurement and control of high temperature processes, typically those above 1000 ºC, has always been problematic. Recent and unfolding innovations in this area promise step change improvements throughout the measurement chain.

This paper outlines, in a step wise fashion, a series of innovations in high temperature measurement that will facilitate the envisaged step change. The key to realising this is the development of new high performance high temperature fixed points (HTFPs). As will be seen HTFPs are very versatile improving high temperature measurement in a wide variety of settings from the National Measurement Institute to application in a variety of industries; for example improving thermocouple calibration to the in-situ correction of non-contact and contact thermometer sensor drifts.
