The hole provides a way to look into the kiln at different levels (always use eye protection) to see well-placed pyrometric cones that measure the "heat work" (time and temperature) that has occurred.
Its laser systems use industrial process controls, including pyrometric temperature measurement, to maintain a constant temperature during the production process.
Other solutions include equipment for electro-optical systems calibration and testing, and thermal scanners and pyrometric cameras for temperature and combustion monitoring.

The six Zn(II) ions exhibit two different coordinating modes (Figure 3A): Zn1, Zn2, Zn4 and Zn5 atoms are four-coordinated by three O atoms from three different carboxylic acid groups on the [BTB.sup.3-] ligands and one N atom from the deprotonated Im ligand, forming a distorted tetrahedral coordination mode; atoms Zn3 and Zn6 are five-connected by one(two) N atom(s) from the Im ligand(s) and three(two) O atoms from the carboxylic acid groups, resulting in a pyrometric geometry.
The refractoriness test was performed by employing a pyrometric cone equivalent (PCE) test, according to the C-24 ASTM standard [18].

A pyrometric process control allows for a constant welding temperature and hence, Rofin says, provides optimised results.
Firing Temperature--cone 06, cone 6, cone 9: The firing temperature or pyrometric cone rating is critical in the description of any glaze.
