Ametek Land discussed using thermal imaging to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in furnaces.

Phillipe Kerbois, Global Industry Manger - Glass at Ametek Land, gave a presentation titled: Combining IMAGEPro Glass with NIR-B-2K Thermal Imaging to Improve Your Carbon Footprint and Reduce NOx Emissions in Glass Furnace Applications.

Abstract: The IMAGEPro Version 2 is a PC based software with the ability to provide batch coverage functions and additionally to communicate natively with modbus, TCP and OPC UA, already covering a large part of the industrial protocols in the glass industry.

Operators can also check the visual information coming from the NIR-B-2K-Glass interface but can also use different information and connect the thermal imager to any PLC using a data acquisition and protocol conversion platform for DCS or SCADA control. Managing the batch length to control the crown temperature is becoming easier.
