Valmet introduces new visible imaging system for pulp mill lime kilns
December 4, 2019
Valmet has launched a new Valmet Visible Thermal Imaging System, which provides the highest quality lime kiln process monitoring for pulp mills. Combining the camera temperature information with process controls can improve combustion optimization and reburned lime quality, and reduce emissions. The system also allows visual evaluation of flame shape, size, and temperature profile. Reduced maintenance costs and greater visibility during start-up and full load conditions can also be achieved.
The Valmet Visible Thermal Imaging System is a rugged, air-cooled, HD visible camera paired with a high-resolution thermal sensor for real-time product temperature measurements. Designed for comprehensive observation and analysis of kiln environments, the camera system provides unparalleled image quality from start-up to full load conditions.
Valmet Visible Thermal Imaging Systems are engineered for durability and longevity inside of hot, dusty environments, providing a low maintenance solution to many complex process challenges. Optional automatic retraction hardware protects the camera from overheating in the cooling air loss. Digital-only data transmission improves the reliability of video streams, eliminating unwanted noise or image signal degradation.
