The PyrOptixTM Fixed Mount infrared camera is designed to see through smoke and ash at temperatures of 7000F to 35000F.

The camera aids in visual observation inside the furnace environment, providing information about slag buildup, burner operation, flame position, and heat exchanger tube pluggage. This helps improve heat transfer efficiency, reduce maintenance costs and contribute to higher boiler availability. A fixed infrared camera installation is permanently located at a boiler port. The installation includes a high-performance, double-wall, air-cooled, stainless steel lens tube. The tip of the lens tube resides just inside the refractory or water wall of the boiler. The lens tube is available from 20 inches in length to 60 inches or more, depending on the wall thickness.

The camera is protected by an air-cooled electrical enclosure. Video cable to the control room provides 24/7 viewing of the boiler by operations personnel. Fixed installations can be a single camera or an array of cameras that provide full visual coverage of the boiler.

A look at a typical fixed mount system

For permanent installations, the camera is installed with an auto-retract mechanism and port rodder (if slagging is an issue). The fixed installation camera can be easily removed from the electrical enclosure and used with a mobility kit for mobile inspections.
