Fluke Process Instruments has just introduced ThermoView TV40 thermal imagers with an integrated visible-light camera. Designed for fixed installation, this new series is for iron foundries where the imagers check temperatures of molten metal and monitor ladles to ensure that the refractory lining is intact.
Users can define various areas of interest with distinct alarm conditions. The analysis software enables easy traceability for each melt. Also on offer are temperature profiling solutions for downstream steel and metals processing. The Datapaq Furnace Tracker based on the Datapaq TP3 data logger with up to 20 measurement channels enables furnace surveys according to NADCAP AMS 2750E and CQI-9. The systems include analysis and reporting software, thermocouples and thermal barriers for maximum protection at high temperatures up to 1200°C. They are also used for in-process product temperature profiling.
