SP - Spray Chamber

AMETEK Land Fixed Spot Non-contact Thermometers / Pyrometers - SP - Spray Chamber
Fibre optic infrared thermometer system, custom-designed for temperature measurements in the hostile environment of the continuous caster spray chamber.
  • Overview +

    A drift-free thermometer designed to overcome the adverse environment of a continuous caster spray chamber, SCP utilises AMETEK Land’s accurate short wavelength processing to ensure a reliable measurement – even in the hottest and harshest conditions.

    Requiring no electronics be located in the spray chamber, and needing no water cooling to operate, SCP’s resilient measurement solution gives trouble-free operation with only minimal maintenance requirements.

    Easily installed using a waterproof, fibre-optic light guide, a high efficiency air pressure purge keeps the lens clean while the System 4 Landmark Classic/Graphic signal processor provides power and signal processing to filters out potential errors from water and steam.

    Available in a range of models customised to specific temperatures, wavelength and optics requirements, the SCP provides the steel industry a reliable, accurate solution for this challenging application.

    Easy to install and operate, the only service required is an air line connected to the sighting tube, to provide a robust, purged sighting path from the thermometer to the slab surface.

    The SCP offers precise temperature measurements to suit individual process conditions, with nine temperature ranges available spanning 600 °C (1112 °F) -2600 °C (4712 °F). 

    Because no electronics are located in the spray chamber, the thermometer produces accurate results despite the hostile conditions. The light guide is protected by a narrow thick walled outer tube, and the field of view is kept clear by an air purge system.

    The SCP is AMETEK Land’s trouble-free thermometer for temperature measurements in the continuous caster spray chamber.
