11. Francesco Pompei1948 - • New Method of Solution Leads to a General Equation for Non-Contact Temperature Monitoring of Internal Temperatures of Moving Materials www.exergen.com

12. Which simplifies to www.exergen.com

13. Deriving The Speed Boost Equation • Set the surface temperature equal to the center temperature, then the equation reduces to • Since K2/K1 is a function only of material properties and speed: www.exergen.com

14. The Speed Boost Equation The ratio can be formed, which then becomes: • General Equation for Non-Contact IR Temperature Monitoring of Internal Temperatures of Moving Materials is Combined with Surface Temperature • Leads to Uniform Material Temperature When Controlled via the Speed Boost Equation • Which Forces the Control System to Apply Heat at an Optimally Balanced Rate www.exergen.com

15. Applying The Speed Boost Equation www.exergen.com

16. Speed Boost Equation is Generally Linear for Most Applications 50 % Increase 25 25 50 Speed % Increase www.exergen.com

17. Implementing Speed Boost to Include Non-Linearities • Apply step-wise speed increases in accordance with speed boost equation, and renormalize at new operating condition to account for property changes. • For variable speed systems, program to follow the characteristic curve. Speed Changes Followed by Renormalization % Increase 50 25 25 50 Speed % Increase www.exergen.com
