Where to place pyrometer in forge


Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

I was given some advice on the board to get the TM6801 pyrometer and I did. Now I'm at the point where I need to install in my forge build and I have zero idea on where to place said item. I have attached a pic of the equipment I purchased, if anyone is familiar with this probe can you please advice on placement and pics if you have them?

Thank you in advance,

Place it where your work piece will be, but out of the way. as that's where you want to know the temperature right?

Correct Thomas, I was looking for a way to permanently mount it so its out of the way but obviously still in the forge.

Welcome to IFI, if you edit your profile to show your location, you may be surprised how many members are near you and a lot of answers are location dependent.

 Pictures of your forge would help with where and how to locate the pyrometer.

Hello Irondragon,

Thank you for the advise and I have updated my profile to include location and I will upload a pic on my forge.

Here is a my forge, I have not coated it yet with refractory and wool as I was waiting on probe location.
