Valmet’s new flame profiling application is designed to enable real-time flame detection and monitoring in a pulp mill’s lime kiln environments. Valmet has also improved its Boiler Diagnostics Systems offering with updates to its Furnace Imaging System, IR. It now includes new optics and a port rodder, allowing for enhanced image quality and more accurate metrics.

The new flame profiling software is an add-on application for Valmet’s Visible Thermal Imaging System. The software detects the flame, measures its relative size and provides distance measurements from the end of the detected flame to user-defined markers.

The software is used in conjunction with the Valmet Visible Thermal Imaging System and is ideally suited for lime kiln applications. The system is engineered for durability and longevity and delivers visual and thermal analysis for optimizing fuel combustion and lime quality in lime kilns.


With the new updates to Valmet’s Furnace Imaging System, IR, the infrared camera system provides online visual analysis to see through flue gas and fly ash. It enables a comprehensive observation and analysis at full load. The new port rodder makes cleaning the camera more effective, according to the company.
