EMIRIM project (2017-2020)

Metrology Research Institute is involved in European Metrology Programme for Innovation and Research (EMPIR) project EMIRIM - "Improvement of emissivity measurements on reflective insulation materials".

This project addresses the needs of the standardisation group CEN/TC 89/WG 12 for improvement of the standard EN 16012. The overall objective is to enable end-users to perform SI traceable measurements of total hemispherical emissivity on low emissivity foils used in "reflective insulation" products with an uncertainty below 0.03. The targeted industry focuses on the production of thermal insulation materials.

Metrology Research Institute contributes in a task for gaining competencies and expertise for the production of reference samples appropriate for end-users performing total hemispherical emissivity on low emissivity foils. This task will also provide partners involved in the project with sets of calibrated and fit-to-purpose reference samples allowing them to calibrate setups for the measurement of emissivity of highly reflecting foils.

Metrology Research Institute will execute a mathematical model of the reflected radiation angular distribution for at least 2 different textured surfaces with optical raytracing. The texture best describing the selected reference samples angular distribution will be defined.
