Turnkey Temperature Monitoring System for Wallboard Production
Noncontact Quality Assurance and 100% Traceability
Berlin, Germany, – Fluke® Process Instruments launches a new, complete turnkey solution for real-time temperature monitoring and documentation of wallboard manufacturing processes. The TIP900 system is an efficient quality control tool designed to help manufacturers quickly set up their line and improve yield. The infrared temperature measurement system creates highly detailed thermal images of the boards, as they leave the dryer. Analyzing these, the system software detects moisture and density variations and identifies any faults, such as clumps or voids in the plaster core, paper blows, edge burns or overlapping boards. The thermal images and any flaws are instantly displayed on a touchscreen, allowing the line operator to adjust the dryer for maximum board quality. Tolerances for rejects, alarm settings and report generation are user-configurable. The dust-proof and Ethernet-enabled TIP900 system allows for remote access to all thermal images and graphs of all processed boards. The LogViewer database stores all recorded data. It can be searched with customized filters, enabling trend analyses and long-term traceability.
