A highly accurate radiometric infrared borescope imaging camera with spectral filtering for continuous temperature measurement and furnace profiling applications.
  • Overview +

    Combustion atmospheres using dirty fuels require  a thermal imaging solution with advanced spectral filtering and high resolution to deliver clear live images from within a furnace, boiler or incinerator.

    The MWIR-B-640 provides a continuous and clear view, even through heavy smoke and hot furnace atmospheres, which is not possible when using visual camera systems.

    The MWIR-B-640 allows highly accurate and fully radiometric temperature measurement image data to be taken, stored, and trended over the lifetime of the furnace or boiler.

    The advanced IMAGEPro thermal imaging and data processing software supports long term data trending and enables the early detection of leaks and temperature variations to help optimise processes.

    Operators have a clear view of the critical areas within the furnace or boiler with more than 300,000 accurate point temperatures, measuring in the range of 300-1200 °C (572-2192 °F) and 500-1800 °C (932-3272 °F). Providing advanced digital communications via the IMAGEPro software, the performance of the furnace or boiler can be monitored to easily identify hot and cold areas and any uneven heating can be viewed in real-time from the safety of the control room.

    The high-resolution image, combined with the wide-angle field of view (90°), allows multiple areas to be imaged and measured simultaneously.

    The MWIR-B-640 uses proven thermal imaging technology to accurately and continuously profile the temperatures within the furnace or boiler providing improved data accuracy through automation and minimising risk to personnel by reducing the need for personnel to be in the hazardous area around the furnace or boiler.

    MWIR-B-640 is ideal for applications in Steam methane reformersreheat furnacesbiomass boilers, coal boilers, cement (kiln furnaces)heat treatment and annealing furnaces
