Coating ring collapse captured on video

A new Thermoteknix ThermaScope HD Multi-View system has captured a video of a coating ring collapse in a cement kiln. The video was taken during a recent commissioning project of a ThermaScope HDT temperature kiln camera and a ThermaScope HDC cooler camera.

According to the UK-based company, the video shows a “classic example of an event being logged and then recalled in ThermaScope HD Multi-View software”.

An entire ring of coating/clinker falls from the kiln wall just by the burner and is logged on the ThermaScope HD Multi-View timelines. With the kiln and cooler cameras linked, the timeline is wound back to replay the event, enabling the user to follow the lumps of clinker as they travel from kiln and then into the cooler.

The Multi-View system records and stores the last seven days of ThermaScope HD full frame rate image data, as well as 60 days at 1 Hz frame rate. This data can be replayed and analysed on the interactive timeline, allowing used to review kiln events, such as light up, fuel change, and the build-up of snowmen.
