Chapter 6: Linescanning and Thermography
One-dimensional linescanners have a wide range of application. They are used in the production of fiberboard, carpets, vinyl flooring, paper, packaging material, pressure sensitive tapes, laminates, float glass, safety glass, and nearly any other web-type product for which temperature control is critical. Linescanners also monitor hot rolling mills, cement and lime
kilns, and other rotary thermal processing equipment.
Thermographic "cameras" find use in the maintenance function in manufacturing plants, especially in the asset-driven capital intensive industries in which temperature is an active concern and diagnostic tool. Typical targets for infrared inspection include electrical equipment, frictional effects of power transmission equipment, and thermal processing
steps in a production line.
Topics covered in this chapter include:
1. Infrared Linescanning
2. 2D Thermographic Analysis
3. Enter the Microprocessor
Other chapters of Transactions will systematically cover other aspects of temperature, humidity, pressure, strain, flow, level, pH, and conductivity instrumentation as well as other measurement, data acquisition and control topics.
