The new SPOT Aluminium Extrusion, Quench and Strip (AL EQS) pyrometer, designed solely for aluminium temperature measurement, provides the aluminium hot rolling industry with accurate and reproducible temperature measurement of bright, semi-finished hot alloy strips to enable to reduction in re-annealing and finishing costs, foresee potential Breakdown Mill problems i.e. reduction in coolant and improve process control.
SPOT AL EQS algorithms are new improved versions of the existing System 4 AET, AQT and AST models with additional parameters of fit modelled extensively on real plant installations. A through-the-lens integrated camera allows for easy target alignment on the extruded section and verification in low and high brightness environments, plus with LED sighting indicates both target size and location using an easily visible pattern. The SPOT AL EQS is highly effective in temperature measurement at the exit of the Breakdown Mill and both the entry and exit of the Finishing Mill.
