Thermal Infrared Imager Continuously Monitors Industrial Gas Uses

WEBINAR:  25 October 2016 (14.00 UK / 09:00 EDT)

 AMETEK Land NIR-B 3XR thermal process imagerOnline — With the AMETEK Land NIR-B 3XR thermal process imager, operators of industrial gas applications can continuously monitor tube wall temperatures within a live thermal scene.

The NIR-B 3XR is easy to install via a small hole through the furnace wall, and its wide 90-degree horizontal field-of-view provides coverage for many tubes with just a single device.

More than 320,000 temperature measuring pixels help the operator to continuously define and monitor spots, areas, and profiles – even in hazardous areas.

In addition, the high-quality optics afford detailed views of anomalies like flame impingement and coking tubes. Continue reading

Coal Pile & Conveyor Monitoring with Thermal Infrared Imaging

Online Recorded Webinar

Richard Gagg & Derek Stuart of Ametek Land talk about the Early Detection of Fire Risk in Coal and Biomass Conveyors and Storage Piles

(Published on Jan 13, 2016)

The AMETEK LAND Coal Pile Fire Monitor provides continuous, fully automated operation – the result being high resolution, high accuracy thermal images combined with digital data transmission.

In the control room, the entire scanning view (displayed on monitors) is shown as a thermal picture, the clearly identified hotspots activating the simple pre-programmed alarms to ensure immediate action is taken to prevent the onset of fire. Continue reading
