Thermosense: Thermal Infrared Applications XXXIX

Anaheim Convention Center | 10 – 13 April 2017

ThermoSense ConferenceThe Infrared Applications, ThermoSense conference promotes the worldwide exchange of information about the uses and applications of Infrared (IR) imaging technology.

It is a set of presentations that, for many years, have been hosted by SPIE as part of one of their multi-conference symposia (DCS, AeroSense etc) in Orlando, Baltimore and now Anaheim.

Below is the overview of the 39th iteration of the Conference with links to the online program and itinerary. Continue reading

InfraTec’s new series of miniaturized multi-channel infrared detectors

The channel filters now inside the detectors

InfraTec-PR-Miniaturisierte-Detektoren-Dresden / GERMANY — Space and Cost Saving: Due to the minimized stack design, users of these miniaturized 4 and 2  channel detectors,  LRM-254 & LRM-202 ,gain important new flexibility and benefit directly from cost-optimized production.

They get a solution for gas analysis and leakage detection that can be used in stationary and mobile devices ranging from medicine to safety technology with an attractive price/performance ratio.

In the cap where conventional multi channel detectors have sensitive narrow bandpass channel filters with special adhesive mounted, a central window has been added instead. Continue reading

Two-Dimensional Infrared Temperatures From Blast Furnace Burden Top

“Blast Furnace Above-Burden Infrared Camera”

Blast Furnace Above-Burden Infrared Camera systemEast Chicago, IN, USA — An infrared monitoring system had been developed at ArcelorMittal Global R&D – East Chicago and it has been successfully implemented since June 2012.

The on-line Above-Burden Infrared Camera (ABirC), as it is designated,  can monitor all the activities and events above the burden in blast furnaces.

Through the ABirC systems, three new phenomena: 1. coke-surging, 2. coke-spraying and 3. burden-shooting, have been discovered. Actual burden distributions can be observed and optimized, and the operators will gain advance warning of adverse conditions occurring in their furnaces. Continue reading
