This specification covers pyrometric requirements for equipment used for the thermal processing of metallic materials. Specifically, it covers temperature sensors, instrumentation, thermal processing equipment, correction factors and instrument offsets, system accuracy tests, and temperature uniformity surveys. These are necessary to ensure that parts or raw materials are heat treated in accordance with the applicable specification(s).
This specification may be used in other non-heat treating applications when specified.
This specification is not applicable to heating, or to intermediate thermal processing unless otherwise specified.
This specification applies to laboratory furnaces to the extent specified in 3.6.
