Paper Abstract

The on-line monitoring of temperature permits increasing the campaign and operational stability of the torpedo cars, as well as optimizing the consumption of refractory, thus reducing maintenance costs. It has become an indispensable tool in the productive process at Companhia Siderurgica de Tubarao - CST. This technique was implemented in 1996 with the purpose of following up the evolution of refractory wear in the torpedo cars, using two fixed thermographic cameras (infrared sensors) with a scanning system. The system captures, records and transmits the thermal images of the body surfaces for analysis by computer, besides sounding the alarm when the temperature reaches pre- set values.
