Temperature monitoring of incinerator
Published:  10 August, 2018

Compiling thermal images of objects that move at extremely slow speeds can be a challenge. FLUKE PROCESS INSTRUMENTS says it has solved this measuring task for a chemical waste incineration plant. Hazardous wastes are combusted in a rotary kiln that turns at 4 to 6 revolutions per hour.

Fluke Process Instruments supplied a Raytek CS210 infrared line-scanning system that it says is able to synchronise thermal images at speeds as low as 2 revolutions per hour and detect temperature deviations across the entire kiln shell and provide the operator with information on the incinerator. Hotspots point to refractory loss or wear. The company says the installation of the monitoring system has resulted in significant savings due to an extended operational life.
