Valmet Grate Combustion Vision is a software application for the Valmet Furnace Visible Thermal Imaging System. With the grate combustion application, you have a highly specialized tool for increasing the performance of your waste-to-energy applications.
The Valmet Grate Combustion Vision application is uniquely created for moving grate boilers in waste-to-energy plants. The software application automatically detects the flame from high-definition imaging and measures the flame front location on the grate.
Real-time flame detection and monitoring improves flame control and helps operators optimize combustion to run the grate at ideal capacity and with less downtime. In addition to an intuitive display in the local control room, data from the Grate Combustion application can be easily transferred to the plant’s DCS.
The Grate Combustion application relies on the sturdiness of the Valmet Visible Thermal Imaging System. A robust, air-cooled camera system, it provides high-definition imaging and high-resolution thermal sensing for analysis of the combustion process. Digital-only data transmission improves reliability of video streams and filters out noise for better image quality.
Valmet Visible Thermal Imaging System and the Grate Combustion application provide a complete grate combustion control solution. The solution is purpose-built for hot and dusty environments to ensure durability and longevity.
The robust algorithm used by the Grate Combustion application can capture key events under various types of process conditions. You have full control over what information overlays are used on the live image.
Designed for ease-of-use, dynamic parameters ensure there is little need for changes after initial calibration. Built-in video reporting automatically generates daily summaries. These can be compressed and emailed to specific recipients if desired.
