Thermalert 4.0 spot pyrometers from Fluke Process Instruments enable precise monitoring of critical glass manufacturing processes such as annealing of glass bottles and containers. The noncontact infrared sensors measure product as well as belt temperatures. That way, operators can ensure that the lehr is set correctly for products with different glass thicknesses and sizes, and that the transportation belt is heated correctly. The latter is especially important for glass containers with a thick bottom, to prevent uneven cooling and breakage. Continuous monitoring helps operators improve quality and uniformity and reduce reject rates. It also supports troubleshooting by detecting faulty burners under the transportation belt. The annealing process is designed to remove residual stress in formed containers. Obtaining the correct temperature and cooling curve is essential to achieve the required strength in the finished product. Temperature monitoring in this process also serves to confirm correct cure of decorative print or coatings. The high-accuracy Thermalert 4.0 spot pyrometer series comprises various wavelength models for different materials, including two specialized glass models. A peak hold function enables monitoring of moving glass containers. The series covers measured temperatures between -40 °C and 2250 °C. The infrared thermometers have the largest ambient temperature range in their class: -20 °C to 85 °C. Therefore, many measuring points can be set up without cooling accessories, saving costs. Moreover, the sensors can be read out, configured, calibrated, and fitted with firmware updates remotely via the internet. This minimizes service costs per measuring point. Fluke Process Instruments industry specialists will be happy to advise customers on selecting and setting up the ideal measuring solution for their plant.

Combining two devices using two different temperature measurement technologies, Fluke Process Instruments provides the glass industry with more information on high-value applications like float glass manufacturing, glass tempering, and windshield forming and laminating. Temperature profiling runs with a data logger enable operators to quickly optimize furnace settings for new products and to identify problems with burners or airflow. They are complemented by a thermal imager installed at the furnace exit for 100 % production monitoring and traceability. Datapaq Furnace Tracker profiling systems travel through heat-treatment and quench processes. They record the product temperature curves via up to 20 thermocouples cemented to the glass pane. These industry-specific profiling systems consist of a data logger, a thermal barrier, and software with advanced analysis, reporting, and archiving functions. The manufacturer offers the largest range of thermal barriers in the market and will advise customers on which system setup to use for their applications. The other measuring device, a Raytek MP150 infrared linescanner, scans each glass pane when it exits the furnace. It generates a thermal image and immediately shows up hot and cold spots. The series comprises various different spectral models, allowing even low-emissivity glass to be monitored. In contrast to thermal cameras, the linescanner needs only a very narrow field of view. It is therefore ideal for manufacturing lines with furnace and quench installed in close proximity.

Fluke Process Instruments will showcase solutions for temperature measurement and quality control with data loggers and infrared technology at the glasstec exhibition in Düsseldorf, Germany. The new Thermalert 4.0 spot pyrometers enable noncontact, automatic monitoring of glass surfaces. The series includes a sensor with a 5 µm wavelength for measuring temperatures from 250 °C to 2250 °C, which is suitable for applications such as glass bending. A 7.9 µm model from the Thermalert series with a 300 °C to 900 °C range measures ultra-thin drawn glass that is used for screens in many mobile devices. The infrared thermometers have the largest ambient temperature range in their class: -20 °C to 85 °C. Therefore, many measuring points can be set up without cooling accessories, saving costs. Moreover, the sensors can be read out, configured, calibrated, and fitted with firmware updates remotely via the internet. This minimizes service costs per measuring point. In addition, the manufacturer will also present a system solution for glass tempering that allows plant operators to optimize their processes, especially in the production of high-value products such as architectural glass. A Datapaq Furnace Tracker measuring mere 29 mm in height passes through the tempering furnace and air quench along with the glass. Taking readings from ten thermocouples that are attached to the glass pane, it generates a temperature profile of the entire process. Such profiling runs are used for process setup and troubleshooting primarily. Complementing the profiling solution, noncontact infrared measurement technology ensures 100% production control and traceability: an IR linescanner generates full thermal images at the furnace exit, which are used to monitor temperature uniformity. The Raytek MP150 linescanner offers a superior resolution of up to 1024 measurement points per line, revealing even minimal deviations.

Compiling thermal images of objects that move at extremely slow speeds is a challenge in its own right. Fluke Process Instruments has solved this measuring task for a chemical waste incineration plant. Hazardous wastes are combusted in a rotary kiln that turns at 4 to 6 revolutions per hour. Over time, the refractory brick protecting the kiln wall degrades and has to be replaced. This used to be done in regular intervals with a big safety margin to prevent serious damage to the incinerator or even leakage of hazardous materials. Fluke Process Instruments supplied a Raytek CS210 infrared line-scanning system that is able to synchronize thermal images at speeds as low as 2 revolutions per hour. It detects temperature deviations across the entire kiln shell and provides the plant operator with information about the state of the incinerator. The kiln shell temperature ranges between 100 °C and 500 °C. Hotspots point to refractory loss or wear. The installation of the monitoring system has resulted in significant savings due to an extended operational life of the refractory and reduced downtimes.

ATEX infrared thermometer monitors sulfur recovery process

full text

Fluke Process Instruments offers a dedicated, robust solution for monitoring Claus reactors during the recovery of elemental sulfur from process streams. In this setup, ATEX-certified infrared thermometers measure temperatures inside the furnace with short response times. Temperature control of the sulfur recovery process is vital since temperature variations can upset the chemical reaction, causing damage to the fire-clay refractory or even failure of the reactor. Conventionally, thermocouples are used for this application. Such probes must be exchanged at very short intervals, because of the highly corrosive process gases, resulting in significant maintenance costs and downtime. To overcome this problem, thermocouples can be embedded in the refractory or fully shielded by an enclosure. However, this leads to very long response times and inaccurate temperature readings. The tried-and-tested Fluke Process Instruments solution removes the thermocouple at 500 °C, before it can be damaged, and inserts a Raytek Thermalert TX pyrometer in the same opening. To enable this exchange on the fly, the pyrometers come with a hinged housing; both sensor and housing are made of stainless steel. The infrared sensors have a 500 to 2,000 °C measurement range. Equipped with an open or closed end target tube, they measure the refractory brick temperature at the near or far end. Due to the precise temperature data, the refractory lifespan can be extended and operators can optimize their process for fuel savings and higher throughput.

Fluke Process Instruments has added four new single-color and two-color pyrometers to the Endurance series. The series now covers measured temperatures from 50 °C to 3,200 °C. The manufacturer has enhanced the maximum optical resolution from 150:1 to 300:1, enabling measuring of even smaller targets from a distance. A new low-temp ratio pyrometer for demanding applications measures temperatures from 250 °C. The sensors feature galvanically isolated inputs/outputs and a stainless steel IP65 housing. They withstand ambient temperatures up to 65 °C or up to 315 °C using cooling accessories. Application areas include primary and secondary metals manufacturing, carbon processing, silicon production, and now also foundries and welding, as well as rubber and thick plastics. The Endurance series offers a versatile range of models with wide temperature ranges and different wavelengths for precise process data that will help manufacturers reduce reject rates, improve product quality and uniformity, maximize throughput, and minimize energy costs. The sensors operate with Power over Ethernet or DC power and interface to Ethernet, ProfiNet, and RS-485. A backlit rear-panel with tactile feedback allows for easy, intuitive navigation. The PC-based Endurance software simplifies configuration and deployment, and a built-in web server enables archiving of historical data for traceability, process troubleshooting and remote viewing. Various lens, sighting, and focus options are available, for example, an on-board camera for video sighting via Ethernet. A dirty lens alarm helps avoid unneeded periodic lens cleaning checks. All Endurance series pyrometers are offered with a best-in-class four-year warranty.
