Thermography in Metallurgy
Reduce the energy consumption of your metallurgic processes with infrared camera systems
- Thermographic monitoring of pans and detection of possible insulation defects
- Monitoring of rolling train’s temperature distribution with infrared camera systems
- Special solutions for slag detection
Thermography Helps Reducing Energy Consumption
Metallurgical processes and especially processes in aluminium industry involve high consumption of energy. Hence, particular attention is paid to their efficient application. Infrared camera systems help to detect problems of insulation, at pans or similar devices quickly and with precision. The targeted correction of defects does not only reduce energy being required throughout the process, but also avoids severe accidents and high costs caused by molten metal escaping at cracked pans.

Quality Assurance in Rolled Steel Production
In order to ensure the stipulated steel quality, rolled steel works require calculated temperature distributions of entire rolling trains to be met. Here, the temperature of rolling stock as well as the one of furnaces can be monitored on the entire rolling train.
Moreover, InfraTec offers special automated thermographic solutions for slag detection.
