Many materials that are transported on conveyors contain hot inclusions. These hot objects can damage belts or cause belt or material fires. Traditional temperature measurement methods are unable to detect small hot spots on a moving conveyor.
A method of detecting these developing hot spots and sending an alarm to the process operators would prevent costly shutdowns. Traditional methods such as visual inspection and single-point pyrometers do not have the speed nor the resolution to meet the application demands.
The HotSpotIR High-speed Scanning System is used to detect these emerging hot spots. The HotSpotIR makes 100 high-resolution temperature scan lines every second.
while the hottest point measured is updated and output to the alarm processor every one-hundredth of a second. The system covers a measuring range of 68 to 482 °F / 20 to 250 °C.
