Industry Information

Heat Sensors

Heat sensors are transducers that generate and use an electrical signals to communicate rates of heat change, which operators use to calculate heat flux. (Heat flux is the rate per unit time at which heat energy is able to reach and pass through a surface.) Heat sensors are implemented in the estimation of fouling on the surface of a boiler, the study of the influence of flames and fire on a surface and other observational applications that work to increase process efficiency and/or human safety. Examples of commonly used heat sensors include: resistance thermometers, thermocouples, thermistors and silicon bandgap temperature sensors.

Most often, heat sensors are used for applications in the fields of medical study, agriculture, meteorology and building construction. In medical studies, heat sensors are used to determine and measure the exchange of heat inside a human body. In addition to helping individual patients on a case to case basis, heat sensors can determine average human body heat exchanges, and information like this can be used in the textile industry to create properly insulated clothing and sleeping bags, as well as immersion suits. In agriculture, heat sensors are buried in soil to measure heat flux over time. When the information they record is gathered, sensor operators can ascertain with a fair amount of certainty the amount of energy that can be stored in that soil over a corresponding period of time. In meteorology, they help accurately measure heat and help forecast future temperature changes. When used in building construction, heat sensors help builders know whether or not the walls they have built are yet well enough insulated. Furthermore, heat sensors can be used to detect and notify people of possible fires. Heat detectors, not to be confused with smoke detectors, sound an alarm either when temperatures spike suddenly, warning of a fast-growing explosion or fire, while others sound an alarm when surrounding temperatures reach a certain threshold. This works when a metal component on the sensor, designed to melt at a certain temperature, melts and trigger the alarm. These type of heat sensors are called rate-of-rise heat detectors and fixed-temperature heat detectors, respectively.

Heat sensors can work in the home, as common thermostats, or in the laboratory, as more complex and precise devices used for scientific research. Typically they work either as either contact sensors or non-contact sensors. Contact sensors are those sensors that measure their own internal temperatures after they have matched the heat around them, or achieved thermal equilibrium. Non-contact sensors, on the other hand, measure the heat radiation of the area around them, like agricultural sensors do. In addition, while some heat sensor systems must be checked on-site, many, like remote sensor thermostats, may be operated from afar. Heat sensor systems can also sometimes be improved upon with computerized programming. Unfortunately, heat sensors almost always function with a margin of error, which widens or narrows depending on the sensitivity of an individual device. However, their benefits far outweigh their shortcomings. They make all the difference between a properly functioning system and, sometimes, life or death.
