CoalScan Thermal Imaging System

Mikron Infrared products has announced the release of its new CoalScan Thermal Imaging System


Oakland NJ, USA — Designed specifically for the coal industry, the Mikron CoalScan is a cost-effective and comprehensive non-contact thermal imaging system for detecting hot spots on coal conveyors, coal piles and other sensitive areas.

The core of the CoalScan system is the fully radiometric (temperature measuring) Mikron MCL160 thermal imaging camera, shown above.

The camera system has the ability to detect thermal abnormalities in environments where quick, accurate temperature measurement is required of fast moving and highly volatile targets.

The CoalScan system allows the user to have a complete thermal map-like view of the crucial coal processes where pyrometers and other temperature measurement devices fall short.

The CoalScan system is a complete solution that includes thermal imagers, enclosures and MikroSpec??? RT software. MikroSpec RT software provides the user with complete configuration and control of the imaging system.

With image transfer via Giga-E, the system is easily integrated into existing control schemes for remote monitoring through standard network protocols.

In addition, multiple PLC interface options are available, such as OPC and ModBus.

???The CoalScan system will allow for users to quickly and confidently take advantage of thermal imaging as a ???real world??? tool to protect their processes and personnel. With the flexibility the CoalScan system offers, users will no longer have to rely on single-point temperature or questionable measurements to monitor for hot spots,??? explains Brett Sargent, Global Vice President of Sales.

???Users can safeguard against combustion, costly loss of product and personnel injury after a one-day installation. We also offer on-site support to help users quickly and reliably accomplish automated monitoring??? he added.

The CoalScan Thermal Imaging System is an excellent addition to LumaSense Technologies??? well-established Mikron Infrared Process Imaging portfolio of products. That include the MCS640 designed for the high temperature markets and the highly configurable M7500 used for industrial process control and monitoring.
