UK: Thermoteknix has announced the launch of its ThermaScope HD kiln and cooler camera Multi-View system at the Global CemFuels Conference 2017 taking place in Barcelona. The new measurement, recording and analysis system for Thermoteknix HD kiln and cooler cameras provides real time screen displays with picture-in-picture layouts to coordinate and continuously record video data and events. A user Interface (UI) has been introduced to maximise the image presentation and to carry out temperature recording, I/O, alarms and analysis in the background. Full OPC compliance gives integration to plant automation and control without the need for custom programming.
An updating time line provides access to past history allowing the user to scroll the kiln and/or cooler video backwards or forwards in time to review, recall or compare fuel changes and events in the pyro process. ThermaScope Multiview software allows the operator to navigate graphically through past events, viewing the kiln process as on-going and illustrated in the timeline.
Multi-View provides the engineer with the ability to trend prospectively or retrospectively any point or area in the image by placing tools on the live (or historic) image to show the effects caused by changes in operational parameters, fuel, combustion, kiln speed, or other factors affecting production and clinker quality.
