Welcome to the Ceramicx Centre for Infrared Innovation or C²I². The Ceramicx Centre for Infrared Innovation works hand in hand with the other departments of Ceramicx Ireland.
The Herschel test machineis our IR energy mapping instrument, comprises an ABB robot, a state of the art Infra Red sensing element, and a sophisticated post processing graphics suite. We have christened the IR instrument “The Herschel”; named after Sir Fredrick William Herschel, the German-born British Astronomer, Musician and Polymath and the first to discover Infrared Radiation.
The Ceramicx Centre for Infrared Innovation performs and publishes:
■ Cutting edge IR heat research work as self directed
■ Multi-client study and project work across international boundaries
■ Contract research for heating, engineering companies and white goods companies
The Centre also
■ Conducts IR heat mapping and testing for all forms of IR heaters.
