Global Kiln Shell Scanner Market 2016-2020 - Increased Use of Wireless Technology for Kiln Shell Scanners - Research and Markets

DUBLIN--()--Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Global Kiln Shell Scanner Market 2016-2020" report to their offering.

The global kiln shell scanner market to grow at a CAGR of 3.43% during the period 2016-2020.

The report covers the present scenario and the growth prospects of the global kiln shell scanner market for 2016-2020. To calculate the market size, the report presents the vendor landscape and a corresponding detailed analysis of the top four vendors operating in the market. The report also includes a discussion of the key vendors operating in this market.

Vendors offering cloud technology in conjunction with kiln shell scan monitoring systems will be a key trend for market growth. Cloud-enabled software is one of the newest additions to kiln shell scanner technology. It enables an interactive platform for end-users with multiple options and constant real-time input about infrared emissions and thermograms. The captured data is consolidated into meaningful information to detect defects in refractory shell lining and problem areas like red spots and hot spots, which facilitates better decision making. Cloud access provides a holistic picture of the kiln shell's functioning capacity and impending problems. It facilitates rapid national and international sharing of data across different locations. Thus, end-users can collaborate easily with kiln manufactures and schedule effective repairs with the least downtime and expense.

According to the report, one of the key drivers for market growth will be increased use of wireless technology for kiln shell scanners. Previous data collection methods that involved manual inspection with handheld thermometers and pyrometers were highly inefficient and potentially dangerous to human personnel. On the other hand, wireless technology can be placed at closed proximity, which increases human personnel safety and collects accurate real time data. Use of such technology is now being increasingly preferred by end-users. Online permanent systems are more beneficial as they provide continuous coverage and data of kilns essential for production processes and makes it more accessible to personnel.

Further, the report states that availability of alternate kiln shell thermal monitoring systems will be a challenge for the market. Thermal imaging scanners are commonly used for kiln shell monitoring; however, they have certain disadvantages. Though a single scanner unit is capable of monitoring an entire 60 m rotary kiln, it is a large system, which makes it unsuitable for small spaces and needs correct placement at the right distance with full visibility. Often objects such as secondary air tubes obstruct the view of the scanners. In contrast, thermal imaging cameras are compact, lightweight, and can be installed in multiple locations.
