Abstract

High temperature measurement in industry is subject to large uncertainties due to the non-ideal measurement conditions; for example unknown emissivity and window transmission for radiation thermometry, sensor contamination and aging causing unpredictable drift in contact thermometry. This paper gives an overview of a European Metrology Research Programme (EMRP) project 'High Temperature Metrology for Industrial Applications' (HiTeMS) whose objective was to address, on a broad front, a number of unsolved measurement challenges in the domain of high temperatures (above 1000 ºC) both in non-contact and contact thermometry. It brought together a total of 15 partner organisations; National Measurement Institutes (NMIs) (10), industrial companies (4) and a Fraunhofer Institute. The project started in September 2011 and was completed August 2014. Significant progress has been made in all the temperature measurement challenges tackled.
