Temperature monitoring for metals and steel
Published: 13 May 2019 - Sarah Mead
Fluke Process Instruments presents its range of thermal profilers and infrared temperature measurement solutions at the THERMPROCESS trade fair. The latest addition to the IR pyrometer portfolio, Thermalert 4.0, enables automatic non contact temperature monitoring in a -40…2250 °C range.
Due to the outstanding ambient temperature range of -20…85 °C, more measuring points can be set up without cooling. Another IR innovation, the industrial-grade thermal imager ThermoView TV40 with an integrated visible-light camera, is also on show. The fixed-installation thermal camera enables 24/7 temperature monitoring in a -10…1200 °C range. Developed to meet today’s demanding industrial automation requirements, it supports GigE streaming of images and automatic alarms.
The manufacturer’s thermal profiling systems are represented by Datapaq TP3 data loggers, featuring up to 20 thermocouple channels and outstanding 3.6 million data points’ memory capacity. The loggers enable temperature uniformity surveys (TUS) and in-process product temperature monitoring. Even water or gas quench processes can be profiled.
