Abstract

Determining the surface temperature of a rotating drum without coming into contact with the drum has caused considerable problems. The drum has a tendency to slightly expand or contract with the ambient temperature and, accordingly, changes the distance between the drum and any closely spaced sensor, thereby introducing errors.
