Ametek Land, a manufacturer of monitors and analysers for industrial infrared non-contact temperature measurement, has launched the MWIR-B-640 mid-wavelength borescope for furnace applications. Users of the MWIR-B-640 can take, store and trend accurate and radiometric temperature measurement image data over the lifetime of the furnace, providing a continuous and clear view, even through heavy smoke and hot atmospheres.
Applications for the device include hydrocarbon processing reformers; heat treatment; reheat, cement kiln and annealing furnaces; biomass, waste and coal boilers; and incinerators. The new borescope features spectral filtering and a high thermal and spatial resolution to deliver clear live images of the furnace, boiler and stock, with more than 300,000 accurate point temperatures measuring in the range of 300-1200°C and 500-1800°C.
Notably, the high-resolution image of the MWIR-B-640, combined with a 90° wide-angle field of view, allows the imaging and measuring of multiple areas simultaneously. With a wide-angle view into the furnace, users can see the image data in real-time from the safety of the control room. With only a small opening in the wall, the MWIR-B-640 can accurately profile the temperature of the entire furnace without affecting the furnace atmosphere, stock temperature or energy consumption.
“The MWIR-B-640 is an invaluable tool that will prolong furnace and boiler lifetime, optimise production throughput, reduce energy consumption and improve stock temperatures,” says David Primhak, director of development and product management for Ametek Land. “It has a range of innovative features that ensure it is user-friendly, extremely accurate, and offers a high level of asset protection.”
