IMAGER IS REAL-TIME TEMPERATURE MONITOR FOR GLASS PRODUCTION

TIM G7 thermal imager

Bestech Australia now offers an industrial thermal imager that combines high-speed measurement capability with high-resolution images and wide temperature measuring ranges. The Micro Epsilon TIM G7 thermoImager is a robust, lightweight and compact imager that can be operated at ambient temperatures up to 70ºC without cooling, and up to 315ºC when equipped with a cooling jacket.

The TIM G7 produces VGA-level images with 640 x 480pixel resolution and provides spectral range of 7.9µm, which enables reliable temperature measurements on thin glass without transmission loss. It also offers a large temperature range from 200 to 1500ºC, making it suitable for monitoring the different stages of glass production. Its high measuring rate of 125Hz makes it suitable for measurements of moving objects in glass manufacturing where usually high-cycle speeds are required.

The imager comes with an advanced process interface that is easily integrated with existing control systems using analogue, USB or Gigabit Ethernet interfaces.

The package also includes G7’s licence-free TIMConnect analysis software. This incorporates a line scan feature that can measure the temperature profile of moving objects and identify boundaries between heating and cooling zone of the tempered glass during the treatment process. This helps to avoid tensions and deformations in the glass surface that generally result in visual defects.

With the integration of an additional reference pyrometer, the TIM G7 thermoImager can also measure the temperature of a glass surface that has a reflective coating.
