Megatech is introducing a new range of affordable high-temperature fibre-optic pyrometers manufactured by USA-based Process Sensors. The range consists of two models designated the DSF-30NG and the DSF-34NG, which have a wide measurement range of 600-1800degC. They are for use primarily in the glass industry and are suitable for temperature measurement of glasstanks, foreheaths, feeders and gobs. These pyrometers can be used in industries other than glass manufacturing where it is necessary to measure high temperatures.
A robust cast housing with flanged tabs makes installation easy and the housing can be located up to 30m from the optical lens assembly. A rugged stainless steel air purge for virtually maintenance-free operation is provided with a mounting bracket, and either an alumina or inconel sight/target tube assembly allows for operation in dirty environments. The optical lens can be simply cleaned or replaced.
The DSF-30NG has a linear 4-20mA output signal that can be easily incorporated into existing measurement and control systems. It is also equipped with a USB interface, while the DSF-34NG features an RS485 interface connection. IR sensor parameters such as emissivity, sub range, response time and peak picking can be easily adjusted by the PSCConnect software. Measuring approximately 110mm x 70mm x 30mm and weighing around 600g, they are useful where a compact, lightweight unit is required.
