  23. FTI-E Thermal Imagers – Accuracy

  24. High Temperature Measurement Accuracy • Most competitors: • Perform calibration and pixel-to-pixel non-uniformity correction at 68 – 176 °F • Extrapolate the calibration up to 3630 °F using a straight line technique • Why? • High temperature calibration equipment is expensive • High temperature pixel-to-pixel non-uniformity correction is extremely difficult • LAND FTI-E & SDS • Calibration and pixel-to-pixel non-uniformity correction is performed within the actual specified scene temperature range (1110 - 2910 °F) • Uses a proprietary technique developed by Land

  25. FTI-E Thermal Imagers – Digital Interface • FTI-E outputs Ethernet directly from the camera • Using robust connector suitable for environment • Remember its not using an RJ45 connector at this point • No need for a frame grabber card – throw it in the trash! • Temperature information included in transmission to LIPS • No need to re-interpret colors from analog video • Temperature measurement information for every pixel is available independently of temperature span set in LIPS • Further temperature after storage • 14 bit data transmission at 30 frames/sec • Digital means no different local video standards (PAL or NTSC)

  40. Questions ?

  41. Selling the FTI Product We demo to make the sale. A purchase order should be the natural outcome of a well planned demo. Don’t demo if customer cannot accept some key aspect of our offering, i.e., wavelength or FOV Don’t demo if customer cannot afford our price. Don’t demo if you do not know thoroughly the customer’s application and associated problems. Don’t demo if the customer does not know his purchase time frame or it is over 1 year away.Don’t demo if customer is predisposed to Flir or other.

  42. Aluminum Strip Processing System

  43. Why Measure Temperature ? • To enable plant safety to be monitored and risks reduced • To improve product quality and consistency • To check for and reject defective products • To run the plant cost effectively with a minimum wasted energy

  44. The Current Methods • Contact thermocouple • Delays between the end of coiling and making measurement • Single measurement • No opportunity for feedback • Manual recording and archiving of data • Dependant on operator skill • Infrared Spot Measurement • Center Line temperature only • Results are often alloy dependant • Complex setup for multiple alloys

  45. The Measurement Problem • The emissivity of a freshly-rolled aluminum strip surface is low, alloy-dependent and changes with surface oxidation • Low emissivity inevitably provides a high level of reflectivity • presents a mirrored surface which can contribute to temperature measurement errors from reflected sunlight or overhead lighting.

  46. The Measurement Solution • A technique developed by LAND over 60-years ago. • Adapted to make measurements inside the cavity or wedge formed formed where the strip meets the coil. • Measuring in the wedge takes advantage of the multiple internal reflections which produce a high and stable emissivity measurement area.

  47. The Solution • The LAND Aluminum Strip Processing System • Has been designed in consultation with leading Aluminum plants to meet your requirements for useable temperature information • Unique coil tracking software* provides 2-dimensional temperature profiling independent of alloy type. • Simple setup with as little as 2 key parameters for the software to detect and track the coil throughout the entire coiling process. * Patent Pending

  48. System Benefits • Plant Safety • Accurate monitoring of coiling temperature prevents potential lubricant ignition • Ensure that the mill operates within specified limits for insurance purposes • Process Control • Accurate temperature compensation of critical thickness gauges • Introduce mill speed control based upon coiling temperature • Quality Control • Check for product surface contamination • Detection of product quality issues prior to despatch • Increased product traceability

  49. Features & Benefits • Plug & Play Setup • Automatic detection and tracking of the optimum measurement position • Reducing the need for complex alignment and setup • Product Traceability • Automatic storage of temperature data for each coil • Allowing review of coiling data when a customer requires it • Process Control Variables • Automatic calculation of • Strip center • Strip edge temperatures • Allowing feedback control of the mill speed to be introduced • The cross strip profile can be divided into multiple parameters • Enabling feedback control of the cooling sprays
