THERMAL IMAGING SOLUTIONS FOR REFORMER AND CRACKER TUBE FURNACES

 
ATEX, IECEx and CSA HAZARDOUS AREA CERTIFIED
 
The NIR Borescope (NIR-B) 3XR is a short wavelength radiometric infrared borescope imaging camera for steam reformer and cracker tube continuous temperature measurement and furnace optimisation and monitoring. ATEX and IECEx approved to Ex nA IIC T4 Gc for use in Zone 2 gas atmospheres, and CSA Certified for US and Canada to Class I, Division 2, Groups A, B, C, D T4, the NIR-B 3XR provides a high resolution thermal image with real time continuous high accuracy temperature measurements of both the tube wall and refractory wall surface. The camera measures temperatures in the single range 600 to 1800 °C (1112 to 3272 °F) and utilising the latest wide dynamic range imaging technology. This is ideal for applications with a high differential temperature in the field of view such as tube and furnace walls.

 

Key Features

  • HIGH PERFORMANCE WATER COOLING SYSTEM - The low water flow requirements for our cooling systems, even in the highest temperature furnaces equal low running costs
  • RANGE OF MOUNTING OPTIONS - The most common mounting options available to ensure simple installation
  • THERMOCOUPLE AT NIR-B 3XR TIP - Giving the operator an alarm for removing the instrument preventing damage if maximum temperatures are exceeded
  • VIEWING ANGLE - 90° angle provides thermal view of multiple tubes. 640 x 480 resolution gives 307,200 data points 
  • PROBE LENGTHS - Range of probe lengths create the best fit for reformer installations 
  • INTEGRATED AIR PURGE - Our air purge design maintains a clean lens in harsh process environments while consuming minimal instrument air
  • HAZARDOUS AREA CERTIFICATION - ATEX and IECEx approved to Ex nA IIC T4 Gc for use in Zone 2 gas atmospheres, and CSA Certified for US and Canada to Class I, Division 2, Groups A, B, C, D T4

Key Benefits

  • High temperature measurement accuracy - enables optimum process control through enhanced thermal imaging 
  • Real-time thermal data - combined with high resolution visual image - allows true real-time furnace optimisation and the opportunity to improve energy efficiency without degrading reformer lifetime
  • Short wavelength sensor - low sensitivity to emissivity changes
  • Dedicated software - data points, areas of interest, automated alarms and long term data trending and system inter-connectivity (DCS, OPC)
  • 24 Hour, 7 Day Monitoring - Shutterless operation guarantees accurate, reliable data with no blind time
  • Export License Free - rapid, hassle-free shipping 
  • 3 Year Warranty - guarantee of reliability

This is ideal for applications with a high differential temperature in the field of view such as tube and furnace walls.
 
Building on more than twenty years of thermal imaging experience, AMETEK Land has continued to widen its range of temperature measurement solutions by launching the NIR Borescope 3XR. With the NIR-B 3XR it is possible to use the proven technology of the NIR Thermal Imager to accurately and continuously profile the temperature of the reformer, improving data accuracy through automation and at the same time reducing the risk to personnel by removing the need for an operator to be in the hazardous area on a regular basis. The NIR-B 3XR uses the shortest wavelength to minimise errors associated with varying emissivity, allowing highly accurate temperature measurement point data to be taken, stored and trended over the lifetime of the reformer or cracker. The image and data processing software supports long term data trending, allowing process optimisation to be achieved, combined with potentially avoiding catastrophic failure.
 
The high resolution image combined with the wide angle field of view (90-degree) allows multiple reformer or cracker tubes in the lane to be imaged and measured simultaneously. With advanced digital communications the image and data can be viewed real-time in the control room in the safe area. The image also allows the user to monitor and optimise the performance of the furnace; easily identifying hot and cold areas and any uneven heating and gas mix can be visualised with corrections viewed in real-time. During startup phases any burners that are not operating correctly can be clearly identified and the effect of any impinging flames can be seen.
 
The NIR-B 3XR is an invaluable tool in prolonging reformer tube life time, optimising production throughput and reducing energy consumption.
