Pyroscan Kiln Burner Thermal Monitor

Categories: Process, Specialised Products,

Pyroscan is a new generation Gigabit Ethernet pyrometric camera for monitoring the inside of rotary kilns or of clinker coolers. This camera enables the detection of any changes on the combustion and the visualization of clinker fall. The operator can instantly see impacts of burner adjustments, variation in raw meal composition or use of alternative fuel. He can also identify process problems, such as clinker avalanche or red rivers formation.
Each pixel of the image can be selected by the operator on the video image to measure temperatures, to follow their variations and to check changes in flame shape (flame length/width and black root length), etc.

Pyroscan is connected to a computer by a Gigabit Ethernet link associated with specific software displaying a high resolution and High Dynamic Range (HDR) thermal image of the burning zone (visualization and temperature measurements inside the kiln and inside the clinker cooler).
The camera head is water cooled and the viewing head front lens is kept clean by a continuous flow of purging air.

Pyroscan Configuration

The Pyroscan equipment includes:

  • A water cooled pyrometric camera
  • An air treatment unit
  • An automatic insertion/extraction system
  • A local electrical control cabinet
  • A PC with Windows dedicated software for data processing and display.

Pyroscan Advantages

  • High quality images with much more detail in both the dark and bright areas thanks to the full High Dynamic Range (HDR) thermal images
  • Reliable temperature reading (minimized effect of dusty atmosphere)
  • Visualization and temperature measurements of the clinker area
  • Flame shape monitoring with user-defined analysis lines
  • Monitoring of avalanches / red rivers inside the grate cooler
  • Unlimited number of user-defined measurements points
  • Historical database (video and temperature measurements)
  • Comprehensive tool for burner adjustment, particularly for firing alternative fuels
  • Video streaming over IP.
