I'm new to this but recognize I'm going to need a pyrometer to monitor the furnace temp..
I plan to use my McEnglevan gas furnace for casting aluminum to gray cast iron, as well as heat treating.
I have seen sensors that can be plugged into a Fluke multi meter but no sure of their range, etc..

Any advice would be appreciated.

I can't help, but I know these guys can:

Just about everything for measuring temperature, pressure, humidity and other environmental variables.
