WASTE-SCAN Supports Fire Protection in Waste Bunkers

Waste incineration plants are subject to fire safety regulations since it can cause danger to environment and its local residents. Thus, InfraTec offers its thermographic solution WASTE-SCAN in particular with regard to the 17th German federal immission protection ordinance for early fire detection and fire fighting. It is a consistent further development of the FIRE-SCAN system for the special needs in the waste and power industry on the operation of waste bunkers. The application of WASTE-SCAN reduces the danger of fire in waste bunkers and, therefore, the escape of toxic gases. A fully remote-controlled solution from the bunker control room or the crane cockpit enables a flexible work for plant operators. When necessary, they are additionally supported by a camera for a better orientation. Critical temperature areas can be displayed directly in the visual image. The infrared camera itself is enclosed in a robust housing with a blow-off system for the camera lens and, therefore, can also operate under adverse ambient conditions.

Thermographic Measurement and Monitoring in Plant Operation

In the age of Industry 4.0, the demands on system suppliers are growing, not just with regard to the primary measurement and monitoring tasks, but also with regard to data networking and structure. To meet these demands, InfraTec has developed a platform‐independent internal data structure, which represents both the measurement and alarm data as well as the measurement sequences. Interfaces to control systems of leading suppliers, e.g. via TCP/IP in the PROFINET, Modbus, CC‐Link and many other versions, can be achieved flexibly and economically. The proprietary Gigabit Ethernet data interfaces of fast infrared thermography camera heads permit real‐time data analysis and evaluation.
