Metso Outotec launches robust furnace camera

HSSR Robust camera fenaceMetso Outotec has launched robust furnace camera, a fully integrated solution that is fast and easy to install into new or existing furnaces hence reducing the need to power off or cut the feed to inspect the furnace

Tapani Keronen, product manager, Digital solutions, Metso Outsec, said, “The Metso Outotec Furnace Camera is part of our extensive range of smart digital tools designed to support customers by helping them to increase safety, improve efficiency and availability, and reduce costs in their pyrometallurgical processes.” 

An intelligent user-friendly system

Real-time monitoring of the furnace enables operators to identify potential issues, like water leaks, and to take action to prevent damage.

The video feed provides visibility to the condition of internal furnace components, such as electrodes and material feeding. The camera can measure accurate temperature values from user-specified locations and help the user to find hot spots. The operator can also identify refractory wear from camera images. 

The automatic retraction function protects the camera in case of a break in utilities supply. Video, snapshots, and historical trend data can be viewed on the control-room display or used for later analysis. 

Key benefits of the Metso Outotec Furnace Camera

• Improved operational safety and reduced need for personnel to work in harsh environments

• Improved furnace availability due to continuous monitoring without production disturbances

• Faster response to abnormal situations, such as water leaks, electrode breaks, or hot spots 

• Pre-tested solution with bolt-on design, enabling quick and easy installation 

• Significantly lower operating costs compared to standard camera solutions due to effective cooling system
