HiTeMs is a three-year fifteen partner research project part funded by the European Metrology Research Programme (EMRP). The objective of the research is to develop a suite of methods and techniques that will significantly improve the practice of industrial high temperature non-contact and contact thermometry, up to at least 2500 ºC. Special emphasis is given to facilitating in-situ traceability, i.e. ensuring traceability to the International Temperature Scale of 1990 (ITS-90) directly within the industrial process. HiTeMs will do this by seeking to address common problems encountered in high temperature thermometry such as unknown emissivity and varying path transmission for non-contact thermometry and sensor characterization (including thermocouple reference function determination) and, in particular characterizing and mitigating sensor drift (to ~2000 ºC). The project started in September 2011and this paper focuses on the anticipated research outcomes by the time of the project conclusion in Aug 2014.
