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.

    TROUBLE-FREE OPERATION
    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.

    WIDE TEMPERATURE RANGES
    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). 

    OPERATES IN HARSH ENVIRONMENTS
    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.
