LumaSense Technologies, Inc.® added the integrated ISR 6-TI Advanced to their IMPAC pyrometer and imaging portfolio for increased control and optimization of manufacturing processes in metals, glass, and other materials industries. The ISR 6-TI Advanced is a true break-through by combining pyrometry with infrared imaging technology to produce “Relative” thermal images. “Relative” thermal images are produced by measuring the temperature of the center spot with a ratio pyrometer and using an infrared filter to show an auto-calibrated thermal image based on the highly accurate ratio pyrometer temperature reading.

The system is based on the proven ISR 6 Advanced pyrometer and a video camera that utilizes a short wavelength infrared filter. The resulting ISR 6-TI Advanced system operates in a short wavelength (around 1 μm) for accurate and reliable temperature measurements between 700 °C and 1800 °C. The analog video output signal is converted to USB and fed to a PC using LumaSense’s InfraWin software. The InfraWin software generates and shows a “Relative” thermal image from this signal. LumaSense’s InfraWin software also provides temperature, data logging, and analysis features. The ISR 6-TI Advanced paints a more-accurate picture for identifying potential issues before they lead to problems that impact process performance, a key benefit for materials manufacturers running heat-dependent processes.

“The ISR 6-TI Advanced solution is ideal for industries where it’s critical to know the temperature of an object as well as ensure uniformity across an object at that temperature,” said Daniel Schueftan, Product Manager for Pyrometry at LumaSense Technologies. “It is accurate and easy to use by offering a single user interface for the pyrometer and thermal imaging function. The key advantage here is that there is no mechanical alignment required between the thermal image and the pyrometer, creating a seamlessly integrated system. As such, many processes in metals and glass making industries that use a single pyrometer to measure temperature can be improved with this innovative technology.”

The ISR 6-TI Advanced makes its debut next week at the Heat Treatment Congress, a major exhibition for heat-intensive manufacturers on October 22 - 24 in Cologne, Germany. The ISR 6-TI Advanced can also be viewed at MEORGA, an exhibition for process control systems, measurement and control technology on November 5, in Bochum, Germany.

6 Signs Your Maintenance Team Needs to Improve Its Safety Culture

When it comes to people and safety in industrial plants, maintenance teams are the ones who are most often in the line of fire and at risk for injury or death.

Making Asset Management Decisions: Caught Between the Push and the Pull

Most senior executives spend years climbing through the operational ranks. In the operational ranks, many transactional decisions are required each day.

Assume the Decision Maker Is Not Stupid to Make Your Communication More Powerful

Many make allowances for decision makers, saying some are “faking it until they make it.” However, this is the wrong default position to take when communicating with decision makers.

Ultrasound for Condition Monitoring and Acoustic Lubrication for Condition-Based Maintenance

With all the hype about acoustic lubrication instruments, you would think these instruments, once turned on, would do the job for you. Far from it!

Maintenance Costs as a Percent of Asset Replacement Value: A Useful Measure?

Someone recently asked for a benchmark for maintenance costs (MC) as a percent of asset replacement value (ARV) for chemical plants, or MC/ARV%.
