CRL 1-hr: 9/26 Introduction to Uptime Elements Reliability Framework and Asset Management System

The wide temperature range of 600° to 1600°C (1112° to 2912°F) makes it suitable for a number of steelmaking processes in continuous casting, molten metal pour streams and hot rolling mill applications.  Additional applications include cement, lime, and hazardous waste kilns, as well as induction heating, furnaces and molten glass. The IP66 mill duty rated housing is especially rugged for complete protection against harsh environments.

Process Sensors IR Sales Manager Scott Nagle stated: “The innovative PSC-2C-1600 package is not only simple to install and can easily incorporate into existing control systems, but is also simple to operate from the intuitive user-configurable menu.  It has been designed to perform consistently and with the highest accuracy under the harshest conditions.” 

A two-color instrument, the PSC-2C-1600 sensor measures temperatures from the ratio of radiation signals of two adjacent wavelengths as opposed to measuring the absolute intensity as single wavelength pyrometers do.  Advantages of the two-color process include automatic compensation for viewing through dirty windows, dust and partial smoke between the sensor and target and for changes in target emissivity.  The PSC-2C-1600 is unaffected by moving targets within the cone of vision and measures smaller targets than the sensor’s field of view.  This versatile pyrometer has universal applications and can be switched and operated in a one-color or single wavelength mode as well.

The PSC-2C-1600 features a large integral temperature display and menu that allows the user to customize its operation for individual applications with the push of a button.  Some of the user selectable features of the PSC-2C-1600 system solution package include:  wavelength mode, upper and lower limit alarms, Slope and emissivity adjustments, four different sampling modes, Celsius or Fahrenheit measurement and a configurable aiming laser.
