Furnace Monitoring

Allied Mineral Technical Services’ team meticulously gathers detailed data about a furnaces’ operating process. The temperature data is collected at an average of once per minute through thermocouples strategically placed within the system.

The data is then analyzed and reviewed with the customer. Monitoring facilitates the selection of a refractory system that can improve melt shop efficiency. Monitoring also can detect the following:

  • Lining wear
  • High temperatures
  • Gaps in the lining
  • External shell scale deposits
  • Build up inside cooling pipes
