Temperature monitoring system for rotary kilns!

Raytek has introduced a new generation of 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.

High-resolution thermal images of rotary kilns
support the optimization of maintenance
schedules in the cement and lime processing
industry as well as in waste incineration plants
Additionally, point sensors cover shadow areas, for instance behind tyres. Designed for rotary kilns exclusively, 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 especially 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. A Refractory Management database helps determine when best to replace the refractory. 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 realized via a fiber-optic cable and Ethernet TCP/IP. Moreover, the control level can access all system-related data via an OPC server.
