Heat Flux Sensors: Introduction
Heat flux is defined as the amount of heat transferred per unit area from or to a surface. Heat flux sensors convert the heat energy into electrical signal. These sensors are basically transducers that generate the electrical signal proportional to the total heat rate applied to the surface of the sensors. Heat flux sensors are also called heat flux gauge. It determines the total heat that is generated on the surface. During the exposure of the heat flux sensors to the heat energy, the sensor generates the electrical input that allows for the heat flux to be determined. Heat flux sensors are used in a number of applications for testing and measurement.
Heat Flux Sensors Market: Dynamics
The number of applications requiring testing and measuring is boosting the heat flux sensors market. A number of R&D centers are being set up in order to look at effective thermal management where minimal material is required. Resultant errors caused by disturbed heat flow is a factor that restrains the heat flux sensors market. Some heat flux sensors have a limited temperature resolution, which hinders the exactness in measurement and is acting as a challenge for the market.
Extensive Applications in Various Industries: Key Driver of the Heat Flux Sensors Market
Heat flux sensors can be used to study the heating effect on building structures based on which relevant thermal experience can be applied. Heat flux sensors can also be used to test vehicles to see how much heat flux is generated when the vehicles are subjected to various levels of stress. Heat flux sensors are used widely these days for the construction of green buildings. The main aspect of a green building is that the power consumption of these buildings are minimal. Heat flux sensors are used extensively in agriculture to determine the amount of energy stored in the soil. Heat flux sensors are applicable in buildings / construction, aerospace & defense, metrology, agriculture, healthcare, chemical engineering, material science (PCM- phase change material), textiles, sports, firefighting, pharmaceuticals, food & beverage, energy & power, and other sectors. Other applications related to the market include applications in precision instruments (dosing, lithography, bonding & positioning), measurement (solar, etc.), mass flow sensors, fouling, rolling mills, and glass production. Heat flux sensors are widely used in construction applications that require testing and measuring.
