Quality Control by Thermal Imaging
The new FTI-E 1000 camera is perfectly suited for high-temperature applications. Operating at 1 µm, the new instrument combines high-resolution thermal imaging with accurate temperature measurement from 600 to 3.000 °C (1.100 to 5.400 °F), over a range of 4 models.
"For high-temperature applications where measurements are made complex by extremely small or moving targets the FTI-E 1000 is an instant solution. The high-resolution detector array coupled with precision optics means we can resolve targets as small as 0.013 mm square, and image processing provided by software means that alignment issues simply disappear," notes Paul Rowlett, Market Sector Manager for Land Instruments International.
"With an operating waveband centered around 1 µm and a form factor compatible with existing System 4 and UNO mountings, Land can now provide an imaging solution for applications where traditionally an accurate and reliable measurement necessitated a short-wave single-point pyrometer," he adds.
Land's dedicated software enables live images and video to be captured. Many other image capture facilities enhance the software including: timed acquisition, full range of temperature measurements (point, rectangle, polygon, isotherm, histogram & area) plus colour palette choices, and a range of alarm functions. The new FTI-E 1000 is ideally suited to many applications including steel concaster, boilers, cement kilns, pipe welding, glass furnaces, liquid metal, coating processes, wire mills and semiconductor crystal growth.
