In this webinar, AMETEK Land introduces how advances in accurate non-contact temperature measurements in metal reheat furnaces ensure optimum product quality, reduced wastage, energy savings, consistent metallurgical properties and minimal surface scaling.
Reheat furnaces bring cold metal to the correct temperature for rolling, extruding or forging. For optimum quality, and to reduce wastage, the temperature should be uniform throughout the product, which requires accurate temperature monitoring.
In addition, temperature measurements are key to providing optimized heating trajectories for the metal, which results in significant energy savings, consistent metallurgical properties and minimal surface scaling.
Webinar attendees will learn the requirements and challenges for infrared temperature measurement in reheat furnaces, both continuous and batch, and will examine both traditional and next generation technologies.
The webinar will demonstrate how the most effective and accurate method of achieving these measurements is through continuous thermal imaging of the entire metal stock.
- Learn the fundamentals of non-contact temperature measurement and its use in metal reheat furnaces
- Understand the traditional and next generation sensors available for temperature measurement in the process
- Discover the quality, control and cost savings achievable by accurately monitoring temperature
- Learn the importance of continuous thermal imaging temperature measurement of the entire metal stock
