Pyrometric cones are slender pyramids made from about
100 carefully controlled compositions. Each cone number
is unique in measuring temperature within a small
temperature range (less than 30°C). Cones measure the
amount of heat absorbed. As the cone nears its maturing
range, it softens and the tip begins to bend, drawn down
by the influence of gravity.
