GlassCam High Resolution Camera

The SteelCam high resolution cameras feature a two colour temperature measurement for a higher accuracy reading. The Steel- Cam camera provides hi-resolution images, has no moving parts and has a variety of mounting configurations that can be incorporated to meet individual installation requirements. The SteelCam high-resolution camera can view the slab/billet in the burner zone just before its ready to exit, and provides temperature feedback to the operators so that burner adjustments can be made. This enables meeting the optimum material temperature. The camera is mounted on the furnace wall, looking into the heating zone area, and provides an important insight for improving product quality.

Benefits Accurate temperature readings eliminate the need to know the material emissivity Improves product quality Less maintenance than conventional cameras Longer Mean Time Between Failure (MTBF) Produces high-resolution digital images Reduces the amount of cooling air required Wide temperature range Provides a variety of mounting configurations Unique dual-walled construction isolates and seals the camera against contaminates
