BFS-STRONG Hot-Blast Stove/Furnace Infrared Temperature Measurement System
Hot blast furnace is a heating and blowing equipment for blast furnace (high furnace), it is an indispensable part of modern blast furnace. Modern blast furnaces mostly use regenerative hot blast stoves, whose working principle is to burn gas first, heat the grid bricks of the regenerator chamber with the generated flue gas, and then heat the cold air from the blast station through the hot grid bricks. The hot blast stove is burned and blown alternately, so that the blast furnace can continuously obtain high-temperature hot air. The temperature of hot blast stove vault is an important data for safe and accurate operation of hot blast stove.
Temperature of traditional hot blast stove is measured by thermocouple. The armored double platinum rhodium thermocouple or other thermocouple is used to indirectly control the hot air temperature by measuring the temperature of the insulation wall.
Conditions in furnace are always tough alone with high temperature and high pressure. Limited to the requirements of operation environment and instrument’s structure, thermocouple thermometry would result in inaccurate measurement and lag reaction when works in harsh condition such as frequently temperature changes, large pressure fluctuations and event in vibration.
Since a thermocouple works at the high temperature of 1200 ℃ ~ 1400 ℃ in furnace for long term, the thermocouple junction box also works at high temperature between 100 ℃ to 120 ℃, which will dramatically reduce instrument’s service life to a range from few weeks to few months. It will increases use-cost and maintenance workload.
In order to overcome above shortcomings, our company has designed and produced a serials of specialized infrared temperature measure device to ensure our infrared temperature measuring system works reliably in complex environment.

Targets to hot blast stove applications in metallurgical industry, our company develops a series of two-color infrared pyrometer suitable for the corresponding environment. The design is equipped with a sealed heat-insulating window and a special protection device. The main device adopts flange connection (can be customized according to user requirements), which can be easily connected to the vault or side equipment. The unique dirty lens warning function can ensure the continuous and reliable operation of the equipment.
Infrared pyrometer determines the temperature of the hot air by measuring the temperature of the checker brick. The infrared pyrometer outputs a 4~20mA current signal or RS485 signal corresponding to the temperature processing by computer or recorder. The two-color infrared pyrometer can reduce the influence of factors such as different emissivity, dust, water vapor and fog at the measurement site, changes in distance, and partial obscuration of objects on the measured temperature. It can increase the reliability of the system and reduce the cost of maintenance.

4. The advantages of two-color pyrometer compared with one-color pyrometer
In two-color temperature measurement, temperature will not change with the object's surface state (such as different surface roughness or chemical state ), which will not affect the accuracy of temperature measurement, but will have an impact on one-color pyrometer measurement .
The optical part of pyrometer, such as glass, will accumulate some dust after using for a period. The presence of water, gas, oil, etc. in the air will reduce the emissivity coefficient, so the temperature measured by one color pyrometer will decrease. The two-color pyrometer measures the ratio of infrared radiation intensities of two band wavelength in a specific range. With dust, water vapor and other disturbances, the signals of two wavelength fall simultaneously and the ratio remains constant after division. But this does not mean two-color pyrometer does not require maintenance. User still need to wipe the glass when it is too dirty.
One-color pyrometer cannot measure objects smaller than the field of view. When the target cannot fill the field of view, the measurement temperature will be lower than actual temperature. The two-color pyrometer can measure objects smaller than the field of view, and can eliminate the influence of water vapor, dust, changes of detection target size, partial obscuration, and emissivity changes. A two-color pyrometer does not need to correct the two-color coefficient when measuring most gray body materials. The two-color pyrometer measures the average value of the highest temperature in an area.
Two-color infrared pyrometer of SIJIE OPTOELETRONICS can overcome the effects of severe water vapor, dust, detection target size changes, partial obstruction, and emissivity changes. Even if the detection signal is attenuated by 95%, it will not have any impact on the temperature measurement results. Unique software algorithm can overcome the influence of oxide layer. The hardware and software design is suitable for the processing of one million times of the signal, which can meet the user's demand for instrument accuracy, repeatability and so on.
