Boiler/Furnace Operation

The boiler is the heart of any coal-fired power plant, and presents opportunities and challenges to temperature monitoring. Key measurements can support the efficiency of the combustion process, while helping to control emissions. Monitoring the boiler can also provide important information on the refractory wall condition.

Thermal imaging in the boiler must overcome the extreme heat to monitor interior conditions and optimise the combustion process. Control of the process is also supported by measuring carbon monoxide (CO) emissions and acid dewpoint. Flue gas detection is required to ensure plants comply with emissions regulations.

The advanced products developed by AMETEK Land support combustion efficiency and emissions control, which together help lower process costs and avoid fines for non-compliance. Our accurate, non-contact measurements allow optimal conditions with no interference with the combustion process. Boiler monitoring spots maintenance issues at an early stage.
