Fluke Process Instruments, a global leader in infrared imaging and thermal profiling solutions for industrial applications, debuts its latest temperature monitoring system – the CS400 Kiln Shell Imaging System. Specifically designed for harsh kiln environments, the CS400 is a fully integrated solution that continuously monitors rotary kilns for hot spots and can picture every brick in real-time to detect wear and tear, prevent costly damages and unscheduled downtime, and extend production runs and the kiln’s operational life. At the core of the system is the MP Linescanner, which provides accurate, edge-to-edge and real-time thermal imaging and temperature measurement for a complete picture of continuous processes.
The CS400 features specially designed software, which relies on standard Ethernet ports. Because the graphic user interface is designed specifically for kiln applications, the software is easy to set up and use with little operator training required. Once set up, the software provides a thermal image of the entire kiln shell surface, with a zoom function that allows detailed examination for key areas of interest. Temperature range and zone alarms can also be easily configured within the software; and other information – such as burn zone temperature, lap time and the scanner’s internal temperature – is displayed in the status bar for a complete system status without changing screens.
“Continuous infrared monitoring is essential for rapid detection of temperature anomalies, such as non-uniformities and hot spots in a kiln’s refractory material,” says Stewart Griffiths, Global Product Manager, Fluke Process Instruments. “Our new Kiln Shell Imaging System can measure up to 1024 temperature points across a scan line and features specially-developed software. With multiple kiln support, polar charts highlighting coating thickness and brick thickness, and envelope profiles over the entire kiln, manufacturers can easily optimize and manage maintenance schedules to avoid costly shutdowns, as well as reduce setup times with intuitive configurations and temperature profile calculations.”
The CS400 Kiln Shell Imaging System is now available. To start picturing every brick in rotary kilns in real-time and contact a subject matter expert, visit https://get.flukeprocessinstruments.com/cs400/emedia/.

Fluke Process Instruments, a global leader in infrared imaging and thermal profiling solutions for industrial applications, releases its first fixed acoustic imaging solution. The SV600 Fixed Acoustic Imager enables users to detect, locate and visualize air and gas leaks or changes in sound signatures across their process and equipment in real-time before they become costly problems. By using an array of sophisticated sound sensors and powerful SoundMap technology, the SV600 translates the sounds that it hears into a visual representation so users can quickly locate and quantify problem areas.
The SV600 easily integrates with factory systems and can serve as an early warning system that can quickly detect changes across compressors, pumps, pipes, conveyors or across product inspection and quality control processes, and much more with user-defined alarms. Remote evaluation options, meanwhile, help to minimize operator intervention, even in parts of the facility that are hard to reach.
“With automated acoustic imaging that the SV600 brings, maintenance teams can visualize leaks or sound signature changes to factory equipment or assets, and prevent unscheduled maintenance and possible costly downtime, and at the same time improve factory safety by minimizing operator intervention,” says Herman Warnshuis, president, Fluke Process Instruments. “We are excited to bring this new technology to customers across the globe and cannot wait to see how they utilize the technology to detect, locate and visualize sound signature changes or leaks in their process.”
The SV600 can also be used a payload for Boston Dynamics’ agile mobile robot Spot, which takes inspection to the next level. Designed to go where other robots cannot go and to perform a broad number of tasks, Spot traverses large facilities or unstructured terrain to automate industrial inspections, monitor remote or difficult-to-access environments and provide situational awareness in remote settings. With the SV600 payload, Spot can be reconfigured to automate air and gas leak detection, increase maintenance team efficiency, greatly reduce safety risks and reduce energy costs.
The SV600 Fixed Acoustic Imager is now available.

The Datapaq TP6 features a 316-grade, stainless-steel case and a IP67 rating, making it water-resistant. This datalogger is available with either 10 or 20 thermocouple inputs and can be specified for use with base or noble metal thermocouples.
The latest thermal barrier models are ideal for high-temperature heat treat processes and have been designed to provide maximum thermal protection – including applications such as vacuum and controlled atmosphere, slab reheat and solution aging, among others. The new patented quenchable thermal barriers eliminate the need for fiber blankets. Fluke Process Instruments also offers bespoke design services to create a solution that specifically fits a customer’s process.
To complete the system, Fluke Process Instruments offers the Datapaq Insight™ Software, which transforms raw data into actionable analytics and features a clear user interface, context-sensitive help screens and assistance options for infrequent users. Three software options are available, and the complimentary Datapaq Insight for mobile is offered for free. This mobile application allows users to reset, download and analyze right on the factory floor and check thermocouple operation before a thermal profile run. The advanced TUS software also provides full temperature profiles and traceable reports for industry regulations like AMS2750 and CQI-9.
“The latest Datapaq Furnace Tracker System offers customers a robust solution that is designed for harsh environments like quenching and high temperatures,” says Rob Hornsblow, Product Manager at Fluke Process Instruments. “Whether users are working with raw materials or finished products, measuring product and atmosphere temperatures throughout the furnace is critical in ensuring both product quality and process efficiency. Datapaq continues to provide real-time, repeatable temperature data that can help improve performance and system accuracy, decrease downtime and much more.”
“We’ve really focused on what customers wanted when engineering this new system, and we are excited to introduce the patented quenchable thermal barriers, an IP67-rated data logger and the Insight for Mobile application that will allow users to check thermocouple operation before each run.”
