AMETEK Land revealing new thermal imaging borescope for glass-melt furnaces at Glasstec 2016
AMETEK Land will be revealing NIR-B Glass, the innovative new thermal imaging Near Infrared Borescope designed specifically for use in glass-melt tanks, with an optional auto-retract version for additional instrument protection at Glasstec 2016.
THERMAL IMAGING SOLUTIONS FOR GLASS FURNACE APPLICATIONS
The NIR Borescope (NIR-B) Glass is a short wavelength radiometric infrared borescope imaging camera, designed to produce high definition (656 x 494 pixel) thermal images, along with providing accurate temperature measurements from any selected points in the image. The camera measures temperatures in the range 1000 to 1800 °C (1832 to 3272 °F) and is suitable for float glass, container glass, borosilicate glass and fibre glass melt furnaces.
VIEWING ANGLE - 90° angle provides full furnace or tank internal thermal view HIGH RESOLUTION 656 X 494 IMAGE - Provide accurate temperature measurements from any selected data points in the 324,000 pixel image INTEGRATED AIR PURGE - Our air purge design maintains a clean lens in harsh process environments while consuming minimal instrument air PROBE LENGTHS - The range of the probe lengths create the best fit for every installation HIGH PERFORMANCE WATER COOLING SYSTEM - The low water flow requirements for our cooling systems, even in the highest temperature furnaces equal low running costs RANGE OF MOUNTING OPTIONS - The most common mounting options available to ensure simple installation THERMOCOUPLE AT NIR-B TIP - Giving the operator an alarm for removing the instrument preventing damage if maximum temperatures are exceeded
High temperature measurement accuracy - enables optimum process control through enhanced thermal imaging Short wavelength sensor - low sensitivity to emissivity changes Dedicated software - data points, areas of interest, automated alarms, long term data trending and system inter-connectivity (DCS, OPC) Export License Free - rapid, hassle-free shipping Real time Thermal Data combined with high resolution visual image - allows true real time batch control, flame optimisation and the opportunity to improve energy efficiency without degrading refractory lifetime 24 Hour, 7 Day Monitoring - Shutterless operation guarantees accurate, reliable data with no blind time 3 Year Warranty - guarantee of reliability
