Thermal images are images created from readings taken in the infra-red radiation band (i.e. below the wavelength of the colour red and perceived as heat). The thermal images on these pages were taken by Radir.
The thermal imaging camera was set to a maximum of 255°C, and images of the outer surfaces of the furnaces and oven were taken.
Each image is opposite its corresponding photograph and the scale (different for each image) is positioned at the left hand side of each image.
The surface temperatures agreed well with those we recorded using a surface temperature reader (a type K thermocouple).
Interesting points to note are:
"If you build it, they will come."
