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.
