For temperature measurements in the steel industry
Featured Product from AMETEK Land
SPOT GS - Galvannealed And Galvanized Strip
An advanced non-contact infrared spot pyrometer specifically designed for continuous, highly accurate measurements of coated steel strip temperature during the galvanneal reaction.
Combining AMETEK Land’s cutting-edge, non-contact SPOT technology with specialised software algorithms, the SPOT GS is a high-precision digital pyrometer that delivers reliable temperature readings for galvannealed and galvanised steel strips.
The pyrometer provides the accurate steel temperature measurements needed for close monitoring of the reaction zone, enabling automated furnace management that in turn delivers tighter control of product quality.
By maintaining control of the reaction and position of the reaction zone, the SPOT GS accommodates rapid changes of line speed and furnace power with changes of substrate or coating weight, allowing furnace optimisation.
Building on AMETEK Land’s extensive application expertise in steel galvannealing, the SPOT GS is designed specifically for temperature measurements in the steel industry, and ensures the consistent high quality product demanded by the automotive industry.AMETEK Land (Land Instruments)
UNIQUE PRE-SET ALGORITHMS
The GS algorithm is dedicated to fully galvannealed or galvanized surfaces. The GS+ algorithm extends functionality to include liquid surfaces seen on exit from the zinc pot.
CLOSE CONTROL FOR LOWER COSTS
The automated management provided by the SPOT GS enables furnace optimisation, which reduces heating costs, maximises throughput, and avoids excessive over-reaction. It also helps prevent powdering or flaking of the coating during subsequent forming operations.
INTEGRATION FOR AN OPTIMISED PROCESS
Combining a range of digital and analog outputs, the SPOT GS fully integrates with furnace controls, PLCs and control software, providing the measurements needed to optimise the galvanneal furnace. This enables reliable and repeatable operation, producing high-quality products with minimal scrap.
POWERFUL SOFTWARE SUPPORT
With AMETEK Land’s SPOTViewer software, the operator can quickly connect, log and view data from a SPOT GS pyrometer. Viewing and analysis is fully configurable using the flexible user interface.
