AMETEK Land will reveal its innovative new SPOT GS pyrometer at AISTech 2019, taking place May 6 – 9 at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center in Pittsburgh, USA. The new product, which is designed to accurately measure the temperature of galvannealed and galvanized steel strip, will be on display at booth 1033 during the event.

This new pyrometer provides continuous and accurate temperature measurement of coated steel strip during the galvanneal reaction. This enables steel producers to accurately measure the temperature in a galvanneal furnace, allowing it to run at optimum throughput rates in order to ensure consistent, high-quality, premium-coated steel demanded by the automotive industry.

“We’re looking forward to launching the new SPOT GS at AISTech 2019,” said Chris Leonard, Director of Development and Product Management for AMETEK Land. “We have developed a temperature measurement solution with SPOT GS that will optimise efficiency and achieve cost savings for steel producers, who can benefit from its accurate digital temperature readings, ease of use and robust design.”

The SPOT GS pyrometer enables automated furnace management to provide close control of the reaction and position of the reaction zone, delivering tighter control of product quality. By maintaining control of the reaction zone, the steel application pyrometer accommodates rapid changes of line speed and furnace power with variations to substrate or coating weight. This allows for furnace optimisation, reducing heating costs and maximising throughput. Additionally, this will avoid excessive over-reaction and powdering/flaking of the coating during subsequent forming operations.

The innovative new SPOT GS pyrometer can be integrated with furnace controls, PLCs and control software. By integrating directly, furnaces can run reliably and consistently produce the highest quality products, with minimal scrap. The SPOT GS has additional inputs and outputs including emissivity out and LED switching, which are available as analogue/digital control I/O as well as over Ethernet.

SPOT GS is available with the free to download SPOTViewer software, which allows for the configuration, display and logging of data.  In addition, AMETEK Land offers a range of mountings and accessories that are compatible with all SPOT pyrometers, which allows for great flexibility and ease of use.

All AMETEK Land SPOT pyrometers are designed for high accuracy, reliability, simple installation, configuration and flexible digital communications. The SPOT GS was specifically developed in close collaboration with industry-leading steel producers and plant control system engineers. The SPOT GS pyrometer is set to lead the way in improving steel strip throughput via quality and energy efficiency.

Alongside AMETEK Land, its sister company AMETEK Surface Vision, the leading automated surface inspection partner for fast and accurate materials checking, will exhibit its automated surface inspection solutions for online detection, classification and visualization of metal surface defects.
