High accuracy, fast-response thermometer optimised for the measurement of the die prior to loading into the press in aluminium extrusion processes.
The ADT is an Aluminium Die Thermometer designed specifically for measuring pre-heated dies as they are moved from the die oven to installation in the aluminium extrusion press.
Utilising AMETEK Land’s highly accurate, non-contact measurement, adapted specifically to the unique process conditions of die monitoring, ADT prevents any process stoppage caused by loading an under temperature die – avoiding costly downtime and increasing product yields.
Consisting of a highly accurate, non-contact radiation thermometer coupled to a Landmark Graphic signal processor, ADT’s fibre optic lightguide enables the sensor and electronics to be located away from hostile measurement locations.
And with a range of mountings and accessories making installation simple, ADT is highly adaptable to the individual application needs of aluminium manufacturers.
Die temperature is vital to the extrusion process – thermometer results are within 5 °C (9 °F), and an emissivity input ensures high accuracy is maintained. A response time of 5ms allows for rapid action if the die cools too much.
TOUGH IN HOSTILE ENVIRONMENTS
The measurement point for this process is often located in harsh conditions: A 3.5m (11.4ft) fibre optic lightguide keeps the electronics at a safe distance, while a full range of mountings and accessories help with installation in hostile surroundings.
