NIR-B 3XR

THERMAL IMAGING SOLUTIONS FOR REFORMER AND CRACKER TUBE FURNACES

 
ATEX, IECEx and CSA HAZARDOUS AREA CERTIFIED
 
The NIR Borescope (NIR-B) 3XR is a short wavelength radiometric infrared borescope imaging camera for steam reformer and cracker tube continuous temperature measurement and furnace optimisation and monitoring. ATEX and IECEx approved to Ex nA IIC T4 Gc for use in Zone 2 gas atmospheres, and CSA Certified for US and Canada to Class I, Division 2, Groups A, B, C, D T4, the NIR-B 3XR provides a high resolution thermal image with real time continuous high accuracy temperature measurements of both the tube wall and refractory wall surface. The camera measures temperatures in the single range 600 to 1800 °C (1112 to 3272 °F) and utilising the latest wide dynamic range imaging technology. This is ideal for applications with a high differential temperature in the field of view such as tube and furnace walls.

Key Features

  • HIGH PERFORMANCE WATER COOLING SYSTEM - The low water flow requirements for our cooling systems, even in the highest temperature furnaces equal low running costs
  • RANGE OF MOUNTING OPTIONS - The most common mounting options available to ensure simple installation
  • THERMOCOUPLE AT NIR-B 3XR TIP - Giving the operator an alarm for removing the instrument preventing damage if maximum temperatures are exceeded
  • VIEWING ANGLE - 90° angle provides thermal view of multiple tubes. 640 x 480 resolution gives 307,200 data points 
  • PROBE LENGTHS - Range of probe lengths create the best fit for reformer installations 
  • INTEGRATED AIR PURGE - Our air purge design maintains a clean lens in harsh process environments while consuming minimal instrument air
  • HAZARDOUS AREA CERTIFICATION - ATEX and IECEx approved to Ex nA IIC T4 Gc for use in Zone 2 gas atmospheres, and CSA Certified for US and Canada to Class I, Division 2, Groups A, B, C, D T4
