Brief introduction to heat flux sensing solutions



heat flux

Heat Flux is the rate of heat energy that passes through a surface. Depending on its exact definition, its unit can be expressed as either W/m2 or W. Temperature gradient in a given environment results in the creation of a heat that flows from the hot to the cold side of the given system. The thermal transfer coefficient of the given system is also important. Heat flux can be estimated with two different methods:

  • Directly with Heat Flux Sensors
  • Indirectly using Temperature Sensors.

A Heat Flux Sensor is a Seebeck sensor: When heat passes through the sensor, the sensor generates a voltage signal. This voltage signal is proportional to the heat passing through the sensor. Thus, they can be used for many industrial or research applications implying a temperature gradient throughout a surface.
