Abstract
This paper will describe the design of two infrared optical pyrometers used to study dust explosions. One is a six-wavelength pyrometer that can measure both dust particle temperature and gas temperature by observing continuum and gas band emission in the 1 to 5 m infrared region using PbSe detectors. The second pyrometer measures particle continuum emission in the 0.8 to 1.0 m region of the near infrared using Si detectors. Temperature data are presented for both laboratory and full-scale mine explosions.
