Traditional multi-wavelength pyrometers use static, application-specific algorithms to compensate for complex emissivity characteristics. The MW pyrometers assume that the surface conditions for these applications are relatively consistent.
The Williamson MWx pyrometer uses Dynamic ESP Technology to compensate for more significant variation in surface character and conditions without adjustments. For example, at the aluminum hot rolling mill, the surface character of the aluminum varies dramatically as it goes through the reversing mill, so the traditional MW technology is not appropriate.

Reversing Mill Accuracy
With its Dynamic ESP Technology, no adjustments to the MWx were required to achieve the following results. These results are obtained using the Reversing Mill algorithm and using the same default parameter settings across all alloys and for all passes. Results for 1000, 4000 and 8000 series alloys are pending.
