Bringing monitoring efficiency to steel rolling mills

14 February 2017

AMETEK Land, a specialist in industrial infrared non-contact temperature measurement, has developed an interface between ibaPDA systems and LANDSCAN LSP-HD infrared line scanners to acquire temperature measurement data from steel strips in rolling mills.

ibaPDA is a PC-based acquisition and recording system for maintenance, process analysis and quality control. Its interfaces, now including the ibaPDA-Interface-LANDSCAN, allow data from different sources to be available across the production process within the ibaPDA system. 

The ibaPDA-Interface-LANDSCAN is said to provide an effective method of acquiring data from LSP-HD infrared line scanners. The interface allows ibaPDA system users to measure temperature profiles and distribution for steel application specific LSP-HD 10/11 and LSP-HD 20/21 line scanners. It is expected to find applications in steel rolling mills where temperature monitoring is an essential aspect of quality control.  

Visual data is displayed live in the ibaPDA system, and users can view trended temperature measurements, product ID, scanning speed, environmental temperature and position of the strip. This recorded measurement data also can be visualised in detail and analysed with ibaAnalyzer, which offers a 2D-colour display. 

When used for hot-rolled strips in rolling mills, the infrared scanner measures the temperature over the whole width of the strip in high resolution and provides 1,000 temperature samples per line with a sampling rate of up to 150 Hz. When used in the binary mode it is possible to reduce the number of samples, depending on application, from 1,000 per line to 500, 250 or 100, to minimise the amount of data.
