The solution: The high temperature camera probe is designed for this special conditions. The originally temperature sensitive camera, is protected by a special cooled housing. Safe and reliable optical inspection in this high temperature environment is only possible with this kind of approved probe technology. Various applications like different boiler types, different wall thicknesses, different viewing angles and the type of picture recording can be realised with this special furnace probes.
The furnace probe mainly consists of two parts. The cooled metal housing and the CCTV camera system. The temperature sensitive camera is located at the front end of the housing. The picture of the object is guided through a 5 to 10 mm wide hole via a lens to the camera. The image produced by the camera can be recorded with the digital recorder. The metal housing is necessary to protect the sensitive camera against the high temperatures and particles in the boiler.
Compressed air and water are used for cooling. The pressure air is blown into the inner tube for cooling the camera lens in front of the furnace probe and to protect the probe from incoming particles.
Advantages of the camera system:
optical online monitoring of slagging
compact and robust construction
mobile- suitable for flexible use
possible optical recording
The optical inspection of heat exchanger surfaces with a camera system supports the maintenance of a boiler by exact localisation of slagging. Optical inspection also supports the optimisation of parameters of soot- blowers. Furthermore the optical inspection can help to identify damages of the boiler.
