Industrial Thermography

Thermography for industry

In most industries, maintaining a high profit level is synonymous with maintaining equipment efficiency and long-term reliability. This is particularly true for industries using rotary kilns in their processes, such as production of cement, lime, bauxite, fertilizer, or DRI. Any shutdown induces high costs. To increase production rates, reduce operating costs, improve the burning process, and save energy, it pays to select a kiln monitoring system wisely.

  • Exclusive Thermal Warp Monitoring Function Helps Ensuring Long-term Reliability of Your Kiln

    Scanners are well-known tools for operators of rotating kilns. Their use has become standard in many industries, where they help operators to monitor the temperature of the shell, they provide real-time information and warning about hot spots, excessive coating inside the kiln, insufficient Tyre Slip…

  • Household Waste Incineration

    Every year, 2.12 billion tons of waste is generated globally. While over 75% of it is recyclable, we only recycle 30%. Waste-to-energy is a technology which is more and more used  to generate energy (power and heat) from the sustainable management of municipal solid waste, 50% of which is considered as renewable. Waste incineration involves the combustion of organic substances contained within municipal solid and industrial standard waste material. Each ton of waste that is burnt and converted to energy can power a household for a month.

  • Hot spot detection on rotary kiln

    Monitoring the evolution of hot spots is the primary role that thermal scanning plays to detect any risk of permanent damage to rotary kilns. HGH provides leading-edge kiln scanners, with the highest resolution and sensitivity. They can give early warnings of a single refractory brick fall.

  • Maintenance and energy savings in cement plants

    Kiln scanners, which continuously monitor kiln shell temperature, have proven to play a key role in the economic performance of the cement production process.

  • Combustion thermal monitoring

    Even though rotary kilns have been used for decades, monitoring its burner remains a challenge, even more so at a time when energy sustainability is so important. Because of standard fuel restrictions, the use of alternative fuels is constantly increasing, thus making control of the flame pattern, size and temperature crucial.
