MF-180 Heat flux sensor:
The MF-180 is a thin, sensitive, heat flux sensor. Small and easy to handle, the MF-180 is easy to attach to and detach from a range of surfaces. It can measure medium to low heat flux values, and is suitable for a range of applications; with a measurement range from -30 ֯C to 120 ֯C.
Due to a strong drive for energy saving nowadays, obtaining accurate information on the thermal insulation of facilities such as buildings, offices, factories, and houses has increased. The MF and HF-Series Heat Flow Sensors are designed to directly measure the heat radiation or heat transmission from walls, floor/ground, stock storage walls, and freezer walls, as well as to measure the heat flow rate underground, by embedding or attaching the Heat Flow Sensor to the measuring part.
The MF-180 and MF-180M are compact type heat flow sensors with high sensitivity. MF-180M is designed for outdoor use. HF-Series are thin types of heat flow sensors. Both HF-30S and HF-10S can be attached on a curved surface. By combining several heat flow sensors with an insulated box, a calorimeter device can be created.
A heat flux sensor is a thermopile, an electronic device that translates thermal energy into an electrical voltage proportional to the temperature gradient across its thermocouples’ hot and cold junctions.
EKO Instruments offers a selection of thin substrate heat-flux sensors in a range of different sizes and thicknesses, an ideal option for research and engineering applications as well as manufacturing control and monitoring processes.
As small as 4 x 2 cm2 with a thin 0.9 mm plate, the MF-180 is a flexible option for a variety of applications with a measurement range of -30 °C to 120 °C. Light and easy to install, multiple units of the MF-180 are a great alternative to the HF-30S for large areas with irregular surfaces.
