Borescope enhances temperature monitoring of furnaces

11 January 2021

AMETEK Land has launched a mid-wavelength borescope – the MWIR-B-640 – designed for furnace applications. 

The MWIR-B-640 is said to enable 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. 
 
The borescope 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. It 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 and 500-1800°C. 
 
The high-resolution image, 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 control room. With only a small opening in the wall, the MWIR-B-640 can accurately profile the temperature of the entire furnace without affecting the furnace atmosphere, the stock temperature, or energy consumption.
