Measuring Temperature in a Rotating Furnace


Measuring temperature in a rotating furnace using the YTMX580 Multi-Input Temperature Transmitter

Background and customer requirements

The customer uses a rotating furnace in their manufacturing of titanium oxide. They wish to install multiple temperature sensors directly on the rotating furnace in order to measure the internal temperature with high accuracy.


Install a YTMX580 on the side of the rotating furnace that can wirelessly transmit measured values from multiple temperature sensors.


  • The YTMX580 allows wireless transmission of up to 8 data sources
  • Direct temperature sensors provide the highest accuracy
  • Wireless transmission means no wiring from the rotating furnace
  • Battery powered—eliminates power cords and wires

  • Chimie

    Chemical plants rely on continuous and batch production processes, each posing different requirements for a control system. A continuous process calls for a robust and stable control system that will not fail and cause the shutdown of a production line, whereas the emphasis with a batch process is on having a control system that allows great flexibility in making adjustments to formulas, procedures, and the like. Both kinds of systems need to be managed in available quality history of product, and to be able to execute non-routine operations. With its extensive product portfolio, experienced systems engineers, and global sales and service network, Yokogawa has a solution for every plant process.
