Advances in Non-contact Temperature Measurement for Aluminium Extruders

Spot_al_eqs

In this webinar, AMETEK Land introduces advances in non-contact temperature measurement for aluminum extruders, including its SPOT AL EQS pyrometer and actuator. Attendees will learn how understanding temperature and controlling press speed and quench rates during the aluminum extrusion process are critical to producing products that have the required quality and properties.

Overview
 
While aluminum extrusions are common, the process of extruding high-quality profiles is far from easy. Understanding temperature and controlling press speed and quench rates during the extrusion process are critical to producing products that have the required quality and properties. The extrusion press exit temperature, for example, affects the dimensional properties and surface finish of the final product. Should the temperature be too high, the surface finish may suffer imperfections that, apart from being unattractive, can potentially lead to cracks.
 
The AMETEK Land SPOT Aluminium Extrusion Quench and Strip (AL EQS) is an advanced third generation application pyrometer for aluminum extruders that is specifically designed to work on low and uncertain emissivity aluminium production processes where regular pyrometers might struggle to provide accurate and reliable readings. It has the ability to measure a wide temperature range from 200 to 700 °C / 392 to 1292 °F.
 
The SPOT Actuator provides enhanced target alignment for the SPOT AL EQS and, when used in combination with the SPOT AL EQS, can further optimize plant efficiency and achieve even greater accuracy and cost savings for aluminum producers.
 
The combined system is extremely accurate and flexible, with application specific algorithms that make it especially suitable for use at the extruder press exit and quench position, as well as at mill entry and exit positions in hot rolling mills. In addition, the SPOT AL EQS pyrometer's algorithms can be customized and tuned for custom applications and specific aluminum grade.

Thermal Imager Continuously Monitors Industrial Gas Applications

Nir-b_3xr_webinar

Presented by Richard Gagg, Product Manager - IR

With the AMETEK Land NIR-B 3XR thermal process imager, operators of industrial gas applications can continuously monitor tube wall temperatures within a live thermal scene. The NIR-B 3XR is easy to install via a small hole through the furnace wall, and its wide 90-degree horizontal field-of-view provides coverage for many tubes with just a single device. More than 320,000 temperature measuring pixels help the operator to continuously define and monitor spots, areas, and profiles - even in hazardous areas. In addition, the high-quality optics afford detailed views of anomalies like flame impingement and coking tubes.
