Temperature monitoring in metals processing
Published: 19 August 2019 - Sarah Mead
Fluke Process Instruments will showcase temperature sensing solutions for primary and secondary metals production at the 2019 HeatTreatmentCongress in Cologne, Germany.
These include infrared sensors for non-contact measurements, which are ideal for continuous remote monitoring of products and equipment, and datalogging systems for furnace surveys and in-process product temperature profiling. Developed to meet today’s demanding industrial automation requirements, the hardware and software systems allow operators to optimise their processes for consistent high quality and fuel efficiency. An exhibition highlight, the ThermoView TV40 industrial-grade thermal imager with an integrated visible-light camera, enables 24/7 temperature monitoring in a -10 °C to 1200 °C range.
Target applications include iron foundries where the imagers check temperatures of molten metal and monitor ladles to ensure that the refractory lining is intact. Users can define various areas of interest with distinct alarm conditions. Also on show, the Datapaq Furnace Tracker based on the Datapaq TP3 data logger with up to 20 measurement channels performs temperature uniformity surveys (TUS) and system accuracy tests (SAT) compliant with NADCAP AMS 2750E and CQI-9. These profiling systems are designed to travel through heat-treatment and quench processes. They include analysis and reporting software, thermocouples, and thermal barriers for maximum protection at high temperatures up to 1200 °C and process durations of hours and days.
The team will be happy to advise visitors on the best way to tackle their particular application.
