Lenox high-temperature Furnace Camera Systems provide remote, real-time, high resolution, color video monitoring and recording of material flow processes and are designed specifically to withstand the harsh operating conditions of the steel industry.
The Furnace Camera System consists of a 540 line, high resolution, color CCD camera and sophisticated light volume control, a Lenox exclusive that allows an operator to remotely adjust the amount of light transmitted to the camera eliminating the flaring / blooming common with other systems. Quartz optics, another Lenox exclusive, are used and can withstand temperatures up to 1200°F (649°C) higher than the glass lens used in other systems. In addition, a water cooled lens jacket and CCTV camerahousing provides cooling and protection for the Furnace Camera System and air purging of the lens systemto prevent fouling by deposition.
Lenox high-temperature Furnace Camera Systems can be used in applications up to 3500°F (1927°C) and are widely used in the steel industry in reheat furnaces, vacuum degassers, continuous casters, blast furnaces, electric arc furnaces, continuous annealers, galvannealers, tunnel furnaces and more.(Contact Lenox for information on our complete line of high temperature, camera systems for industrial remote viewing)
