Hotspot Detection for Continuous Process Monitoring and Quality Control

Using the HotSpot IR to detect deterioration on the rolls themselves

As production rates and temperatures rise, the possibility of overheating a roll, causing a blister or losing the coating increases. Coated rolls can be repaired, but the cost can be tens of thousands of dollars and the associated downtime further adds to this. The coated rolls rotate at high speeds and some of the developing hot spots can be quite tiny so it is impossible to detect these developing problems by using traditional methods.

“One undetected hot spot can cause $40,000 to $100,000 in roll damage and repair”
