Achema trade show: ATEX-certified temperature monitoring and more
Published: 11 June 2018 - Sarah Mead
Fluke Process Instruments will present infrared thermometers and thermal imagers for the process industry at the 2018 Achema trade show in Frankfurt, Germany.
Intrinsically safe temperature sensors are available for use in hazardous environments (gas zones 1, 2, dust zones 21, 22). These support both fully automatic monitoring of measurement points with standalone devices and networked installations for IoT-enabled factory automation. Industrial-grade Raytek Thermalert TX pyrometers measure temperatures up to 2,000 °C. With cooling, they tolerate ambient temperatures up to 315 °C. Raytek Compact MI3 sensors have been designed for easy machine and plant integration.
Two rugged, digital sensor heads can be used with one power supply and communication box at minimal costs per measuring point. Various fieldbus and Industrial Ethernet interface options are available. Both series comprise Ex i pyrometers for various spectral ranges and optics for different measurement distances. Thermal imaging solutions from Fluke Process Instruments for the process industry are based on the Raytek MP150 infrared linescanner. Applications include monitoring of textile fibers (presence detection) and kiln shell monitoring in chemical waste incineration, where the systems detect hotspots and thereby help extend the operational life of the refractory.
