Copper

Copper
Copper is one of the most commonly used metals in the world. It is particularly important in electrical wiring, which requires a high degree of purity of the metal.

In addition to wiring, copper is used for a wide range of applications including plumbing pipes, heat exchangers, and coinage. Temperature monitoring is important at the furnace stage of refining.

AMETEK Land’s advanced, innovative measurement instruments are used with confidence by metal processing industries across the world. Our integrated thermal imaging systems and non-contact pyrometer solutions provide key information during the furnace stage of refining, monitoring furnace condition and ensuring consistent product purity.
