TV30 Thermal Imager Streamlines Production

Thermal imaging technology has become increasingly accessible and convenient, revolutionizing its applications in various industries. With ThermoView® Thermal Imagers like the TV40 and TV30, setting up a reliable thermal imaging system in an industrial setting is simpler than ever. In fact, the TV30 eliminates the need for a personal computer, allowing quick and hassle-free installation. By leveraging the TV30’s capabilities, industrial facilities can effortlessly monitor multiple areas of interest (AOIs) and access onboard analytics through a web browser. With its user-friendly interface and advanced features, these thermal imagers offer a versatile solution for enhancing maintenance practices, optimizing energy usage, and ensuring the safety and efficiency of industrial operations. Here are some examples:

Copper Smelting Kilns

1. Copper Smelting Kilns

By monitoring the outer refractory surface of kilns, the TV30 detects hot spots, preventing downtime and ensuring employee safety with their auto-alarming features.

Steel Ladles

2. Steel Ladles

Similar to copper smelting kilns, the thermal imagers monitor ladle surfaces for hot spots, enabling quick detection of inconsistent temperatures and providing better protection through customizable alarms. 

Rubber Manufacturing

3. Enclosed Chemical Ovens

Fixed thermal imaging is implemented to confirm product temperature in rubber-based manufacturing, ensuring operator safety and reducing the risk of on-site fires. 

 Industrial Cooking Ovens

4. Industrial Cooking Ovens

Continuous monitoring with fixed thermal imaging allows industrial cooking operators to verify that food has been cooked to the proper temperature before packaging, ensuring quality control.

Backlight Production

5. Backlight Production

Fluke’s thermal imagers enable seamless monitoring of user-defined areas of interest, providing comprehensive coverage in industrial environments. Adding defroster grids, antennas, and other components on the rear windows of automobiles involves multiple stages with treatments and coatings, and temperature monitoring becomes crucial. By utilizing the TV30, facility operators can precisely monitor temperatures at each stage of the production process.

Ceramic-Lined Products

6. Ceramic-Lined Products

The TV30 fixed thermal imager with ThermoView software detects hot spots within unlimited areas of interest, including ceramic-lined products in chemical applications, preventing potential damage to the end product and reducing re-work rates through visual and infrared inspections. 

Vinyl Flooring

7. Vinyl Flooring

Verifying that the material is consistent and evenly heated throughout manufacturing is essential to ensure proper multi-layer bonding. By utilizing thermal imaging, the TV30 enables operators to instantly identify inconsistencies in material temperature. 

Steel Processing

8. High-Carbon Steel Processing

The ThermoView imagers monitor product temperature during high-carbon steel processing, ensuring even heating and maximizing equipment uptime and product throughput.

Particle board

9. Particle Board Manufacturing

Monitoring the manufacture of particle board or pressboard to identify hot spots that could result in warehouse fires or damage to machinery. When hot spots are identified, a process alarm is generated to notify the process equipment that a hot spot has occurred.

The ThermoView TV30 Fixed Thermal Imager offers benefits across industries, providing continuous monitoring, quick detection of abnormalities, enhanced quality control, and easy integration with existing systems.
