How to continuously monitor flame impingement in process heaters

December 19, 2006

Lenox Instrument Company’s FireSightÒ High-Temperature Remote Viewing System continuously and safely permits viewing of the flame quality and impingement if present on the tube walls of petrochemical process heaters. The FireSight System allows an operator to view the flame in real time in order to tune the furnace to eliminate this hazardous and potentially catastrophic condition. FireSight also provides an economical means to speed light off and reduce NOx emissions by permitting color video monitoring of combustion and process control in boilers, furnaces, kilns and incinerators. Capable of operating trouble-free in temperatures up to 3,000 degrees F (air-cooled model) or 4,250 degrees F (water-cooled), the FireSight system is ideal for use in power plants, refineries, petrochemical and chemical plants, steel mills, paper mills, glass plants, cement kilns, and incinerators.
