Designed to detect refractory wear or breakdown, the Critical Vessel Monitoring System from Land Instruments Intl. Ltd., Dronfield, U.K., a unit of AMETEK Inc., uses industrial cameras suitable for harsh environments placed to view all parts of the vessel, measuring surface temperature once every 16 cm2. Each camera records >110,000 individual measurements. Measurements from all cameras are reported using graphical software that signals an alarm if a potential breakout is detected. The software also compiles temperature trends to support statistical analysis of refractory wear. The system is optimized for use in gasifiers and other critical vessels in the petrochemical refining, power generation, chemical and coal processing, waste management, and fertilizer and plastics production industries.
