Enhanced temperature monitoring for rotary kilns

18 March 2014

Raytek has introduced a new generation of its CS210 system, for non-contact temperature measurement and monitoring of rotary kiln shells. 

The modular system now integrates up to four infrared line scanners for monitoring long and difficult-to-access kilns. In addition, point sensors cover shadow areas, such as behind tyres. 

Designed specifically for rotary kilns the software compiles all data to a complete thermal image. The upgrade also enables a real-time display of a 3D thermal image of the kiln surface, making refractory monitoring user-friendly. 

Damaged and fallen bricks are quickly located, enabling users to initiate repair and avoid expensive production stops. The system provides a one-brick resolution and sends failsafe hotspot alarms. 

All oven-related and operational data, information about the refractory material, and maintenance dates can be easily managed and documented with a user history. A separate sensor monitoring the burning zone can also be integrated and managed via the software. Communication with the control room is typically realised via a fibre-optic cable and Ethernet TCP/IP. The control level can access all system-related data via an OPC server.
