DYMAX: Radiometer

September 2, 2011

The ACCU-CAL™ 150 is reportedly a simple-to-operate radiometer that offers repeatable measurement of UV light, which simplifies both the validation and monitoring of a UV light-curing process. The instrument can measure UV light up to 10 W/cm2 emitted from stationary light-curing flood lamps or lamps used in conveyorized processes. It can be used to determine intensity (measured in mW/cm2) or total energy as derived from intensity and exposure time (measured in mJ/cm2).

The use of radiometers in application processes is critical to ensure that any changes to the properties of curing energy are identified. Radiometers establish process parameters and, when maintained, help ensure consistent production quality, which results in reduced scrap and increased throughput.
