Kilnscan thermal scanner in operation

KILNSCAN is a benchmark thermal scanner, with the highest resolution and sensitivity, displaying the full temperature profile of the kiln, with a high frame rate. With a single refractory brick resolution, Kilnscan shell scanner will warn of any hot spot at the earliest sign. And go even further. Thanks to advanced features, such as the unique thermal warp calculation and historical data management, Kilnscan provides the operator with the full picture to secure a predictive maintenance program. 

 

Thermal scanning to extend kiln shell lifetime

A rugged system, Kilnscan kiln shell scanner has been designed for demanding environments. With the highest scan angle of the industry, KILNSCAN adapts to any kiln configuration: long shell with limited free space around, kilns with multiple shadows generated by posts, etc. Kilnscan provides accurate and reliable thermal measurements, multiple alarms for early event detection, historical data to draw trends and schedule preventive maintenance operations, and advanced refractory management.
