Can IR sensors see through dust and smoke?

spacer image
Infrared thermometers cannot see through these interferences.  However, in most industrial applications, the dust and smoke are rising from the hot object.  If our eyes were as fast as an IR thermometer, we would see openings where the instrument has a clear line of sight. 

With the aid of a function called a peak picker, the IR instrument can detect the target temperature and ignore the cold readings caused by dust and smoke.  Contact us with more questions regarding your application.
