Ceramics and bricks are fired in a kiln at temperatures up to 1200°C/2200°F. The entire process can take up to several days from entry to exit, as the product travels through cycles of drying, pre-heating, firing and cooling.
Product temperature monitoring is needed through the kiln cycle to provide the required product and zone specific temperatures.
- Verify and optimize firing cycles by understanding product temperatures throughout the process
- Improve kiln efficiency by fine-tuning line speed, fuel usage and load conditions
- Monitor quartz inversion index for optimum product quality
- Real-time data to enable 'on the fly' changes during the production cycle
