Electrical power is the resource that sustains modern society. It is generated from many sources, including natural gas, coal, solar and wind, as well as from less likely sources like trash and wood byproducts. These fuel sources are commonly fed into an industrial boiler to convert water to steam, generating power that is used locally or supplied to the power grid that sustains cities and towns.
The power industry is under pressure to deliver consistent supply while maintaining costs and reducing environmental impact. Controlling furnace exit gas temperature (FEGT) with an IR temperature sensor reduces unnecessary fuel consumption and ensures the boiler itself remains undamaged and performs optimally year after year.
Process Sensors Corporation (PSC) is a trusted supplier of non-contact temperature monitoring sensors and systems designed specifically for the power industry. With worldwide sales and support offices, PSC assists on projects from initial scope and estimation of potential ROI to installation and integration of your system with responsive support after the sale.
