New Borescope on show

Published:  06 January, 2017

AMETEK Land, a leading non-contact temperature measurement specialist has announced it will launch its Near Infrared Borescope (NIR-B) 3XR to the international market February 27 to March 2, 2017 at Nitrogen + Syngas 2017, London, at stand 75. Nitrogen + Syngas 2017 is one of the world’s leading annual events for the nitrogen and industrial gas market. The four-day technical conference and exhibition attracts technology experts, innovators and plant operators from around the globe.

AMETEK Land says its NIR-B 3XR delivers continuous, high-accuracy reformer tube wall temperature (TWT) measurement, furnace optimisation and monitoring, giving operators the ability to measure temperature point data and for storing and trending this data for future analysis.

“The NIR-B 3XR helps to optimise efficiency and improve monitoring significantly and is a major development in temperature measurement for industrial gas applications. The result is increased productivity, greater asset protection and enhanced tube life. Nitrogen + Syngas 2017 provides the industry with a unique opportunity to meet, learn and network and we look forward to demonstrating the NIR-B 3XR’s wide range of features and benefits,” says Thomas Fortinberry, business development manager for Industrial Gas at AMETEK Land.

Operating with a wide-angle field of view (90°) and a high-resolution image, the NIR-B 3XR allows multiple reformer tubes to be imaged and measured simultaneously. That capability is critical to extending asset life and maximising efficiency as a -10°C measurement error over time can result in either 1% lost productivity, while a +10°C error can result in a 25% reduction in tube life.
