Infrared pyrometers for measuring dust explosion temperatures.
Proc SPIE - Modern Utilization of Infrared Technology VI, July 31-August 1, 1980, San Diego, California. Spiro IJ, ed. Bellingham, WA: Society of Photo-Optical Instrumentation Engineers (SPIE), 1980 Jul; 253:254-260
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 µm infrared region using PbSe detectors. The second pyrometer measures particle continuum emission in the 0.8 to 1.0 µm region of the near infrared using Si detectors. Temperature data are presented for both laboratory and full-scale mine explosions.
