AMETEK Land releases borescope to monitor furnace temperature

AMETEK LandAMETEK Land has launched a mid-wavelength borescope, the MWIR-B-640, for furnace applications

The MWIR-B-640 aims to enable highly accurate and fully radiometric temperature measurement image data to be taken, stored, and trended over the lifetime of the furnace, providing a continuous and clear view, even through heavy smoke and hot atmospheres.

It is suitable for use in hydrocarbon processing reformers; heat treatment; reheat, cement kiln, and annealing furnaces; biomass, waste and coal boilers; as well as incinerators. This innovative new borescope features advanced 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 (572-2192 °F) and 500-1800 °C (932-3272 °F).

The high-resolution image of the MWIR-B-640, combined with a 90° wide-angle field of view, allows multiple areas to be imaged and measured simultaneously. With the wide-angle view into the furnace, image data can be viewed in real-time from the safety of the control room.

“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,” said David Primhak, director of development and product management for AMETEK Land. 

The MWIR-B-640 uses proven thermal imaging technology to accurately and continuously profile the temperature of the furnace and the stock, resulting in improved data accuracy through automation and reduced risk to personnel by minimizing the need for an operator to be in the hazardous furnace and boiler area.
