We are specialists in non-contact temperature measurement and combustion monitoring with our products finding applications across diverse industries such as steel and glass making, power generation, cement manufacture and hydrocarbon processing.
The NIR Borescope (NIR-B) 3XR is a short wavelength radiometric infrared borescope imaging camera for steam reformer and cracker tube continuous temperature measurement and furnace optimisation and monitoring. ATEX and IECEx approved to Ex nA IIC T4 Gc for use in Zone
2 gas atmospheres, and CSA Certified for US and Canada to Class I, Division 2, Groups A, B, C, D T4, the NIR-B 3XR provides a high resolution thermal image with real time continuous high accuracy temperature measurements of both the tube wall and refractory wall surface. The camera measures temperatures in the single range 600 to 1800 °C (1112 to 3272 °F) and utilising the latest wide dynamic range imaging technology. This is ideal for applications with a high differential temperature in the field of view such as tube and furnace walls.
Building on more than twenty years of thermal imaging experience, AMETEK Land has continued to widen
its range of temperature measurement solutions by launching the NIR Borescope 3XR. With the NIR-B 3XR it
is possible to use the proven technology of the NIR Thermal Imager to accurately and continuously profile the temperature of the reformer, improving data accuracy through automation and at the same time reducing the risk to personnel by removing the need for an operator to be in the hazardous area on a regular basis. The NIR-B 3XR uses the shortest wavelength
