FIRESIGHT HIGH-TEMPERATURE REMOTE VIEWING
SYSTEMS FROM LENOX INSTRUMENT CO. PROVIDE LOWEST COST METHOD TO
SPEED BOILER LIGHT-OFF AND REDUCE NOX EMISSIONS
Trevose, PA, May 2003 – Lenox Instrument Company’s FireSight
High-Temperature Remote Viewing System is the easiest and most economical
means to speed light off and reduce NOx emissions by permitting
color video monitoring of combustion and process control in boilers,
furnaces, kilns and incinerators.
Capable of operating trouble-free in temperatures up to 3,500°
F (air-cooled model) or 4,000° F (water-cooled), the FireSight
system is ideal for use in power plants, steel mills, paper mills,
glass plants, cement kilns, and incinerators. FireSight systems
are used to speed light off, evaluate flame quality, determine status
of igniters, and view flame impingement, NOx emissions and smoke.
In power generation applications, for example, using FireSight systems
typically reduces fuel consumption by as much as 2% and pollution
by as much as 20%.
FireSight systems provide the highest image clarity in the industry.
The Light Volume Control feature, a Lenox exclusive, allows the
operator to easily adjust the amount of light transmitted to the
camera, eliminating the flaring common with other systems and ensuring
a high-quality image from initial light off to maximum load. The
system also features quartz optics that withstand temperatures up
to 1,200° F higher than the glass lenses used in other systems.
The furnace lens is an air-cooled periscope, ranging from 12 in.
to 12 ft. in length. (The lens relies on a modest amount of plant
air for cooling.) Furnace lenses can be supplied with a wide variety
of directions and fields of view to match the specific application
The FireSight viewing system requires a boiler wall penetration
of only 2-3/8 in. With its small size, the system will normally
fit in existing openings in boiler tubes and wall penetrations.
The system’s wall box supplies a protective housing and mounting
for the camera and serves as the primary coolant shroud. The FireSight’s
compact CCD camera is an industrial surveillance camera designed
for reliability and long life. The monitor is normally mounted in
the control room providing the operator with a continuous, real-time
image of the combustion chamber.
Each FireSight system is designed, manufactured and serviced in-house
by Lenox Instrument, and is backed by a two-year warranty.
