AGAM Q1 for the certified temperature measurement

AGAM Q1 is a tested and proven temperature measurement system suitable for industrial equipment that requires approval as per the Federal Emission Control Act, Germany (13th BIm-SchV, 17th BImSchV, 30th BImSchV, 44th BImSchV, 27th BIm-SchV & TA-Luft). The measuring range of the system is between 50 and 1,500 ° C. Since February 2021, AGAM Q1 is certified for use in Europe and worldwide after the tests were successfully executed per DIN EN 15267 with official approval according to the QAL1 standard for officially ordered measurement and monitoring as per DIN EN 14181.
The ambient temperature is -20 to +50 ° C (IP66) which implies AGAM Q1 is suitable for indoor and outdoor use. The QAL1 qualification is without restrictions. The monthly maintenance interval of the system is software-automated to such an extent that a self-test cycle is carried out. The on-site checks can be carried out simply by visual inspection of the boiler and the control unit. Similar to previous acoustics systems from B&D, a complex calibration of the AGAM Q1 system is not necessary.

Precise measurement of the real gas temperature – without radiation errors

One reason for our outstanding role: AGAM measures the real gas temperature free from radiation errors. The intelligent realization of a simple physical principle has led us to the top of the market:

The speed of sound in a gas depends on the temperature.

From this direct relationship we have developed a simple measurement method that provides temperature information from the combustion chamber reliably and with the highest precision.

Constant precision from 0 to 2000 °C

A further advantage of the acoustic gas temperature measurement: AGAM operates with the same high accuracy across the entire temperature range of the combustion process – from start-up to operation at full load. AGAM operates free from drift and does not require calibration and thus delivers precise temperatures over the course of time – universally in any application.

Contactless and self-cleaning

As a contactless measurement method, AGAM has no wear parts in the exhaust gas flow. All components are located outside the measurement atmosphere and are thus protected from the rough conditions in the combustion chamber. AGAM uses compressed air to generate sound, which makes the sensors self-cleaning.

AGAM legt die Messlatte in der 2D-Gastemperatur-Messung erneut höher

AGAM G3 raises the bar again in 2D gas temperature measurement

At the top of technological development, there is only one target: to constantly redefine the limits of what is technically feasible. With AGAM G3 we are further expanding our technological lead. Speed, resolution, operating concept, maintenance, stability and solutions for difficult installation situations: In all aspects we have taken a big step into the future of 2D gas temperature measurement with AGAM G3.

AGAM is not only the 2D gas temperature measurement system with the most references. With the most modern and technically advanced system on the market, we have raised the bar even further.

Höchste Auflösung für eine präzise Analyse der 2D-Gastemperatur-Verteilung

Highest resolution for precise temperature analysis

AGAM is the system with the highest resolution in 2D gas temperature measurement. With AGAM, you are able to identify critical temperature strands that would otherwise remain undetected. With an unlimited number of paths, AGAM G3 creates a geometrically clear and extensive network which forms the basis for descriptive tomographic illustrations. We adhere to our aspiration to measure temperatures with the highest resolution in every corner of the furnace. With new high-temperature microphones and echo paths, AGAM G3 manages even the most difficult installation situations.

Schnellere 2D-Gastemperaturmessung nahe der Echtzeit in Schallgeschwindigket

Faster 2D measurement near real time with less compressed air

Our development is always moving towards higher resolution and speed. With AGAM G3 we have made a further big step and are now able to measure 200 path temperatures in less than 15 seconds. Tomographically determined 2D illustrations can be updated every second by AGAM G3. For incineration plants, this means that temperature fluctuations can be detected even more quickly and critical temperature peaks can thus be avoided.

We also pay attention to the important topic of compressed air consumption. We have already significantly reduced the consumption by shorter signal impulses and simultaneous bi-directional signal detection. With AGAM G3 we have again halved the compressed air consumption and can continue to decrease it with alternative sound sources if required.

Echte Gastemperaturen überall abrufen - 2D-Gastemperaturmessung im Browser auf jedem Gerät

Display real gas temperatures from everywhere

With the new web interface of AGAM G3 you can monitor your furnace wherever you are. All you need is access to the internal network and a browser. We have designed the new AGAM G3 interface very user-friendly – so that you can fully concentrate on monitoring and optimizing your system. All data can be exported easily and in many common formats via the web interface and will be available in full resolution for at least 10 years.

Software with modern and modular architecture

We have developed AGAM G3 from the bottom up. For the software, we use a modern, modular architecture that meets today's standards in a modern IT world. Updates can be installed easily and safely. Clearly defined interfaces allow individual extensions without affecting the core system. We have also taken precautions for the case of an emergency situation: backup and system recovery can be carried out easily.

AGAM System Hardware: Robuste integrierte Hardware für zuverlässige 2D-Gastemperaturmessung

Robust integrated hardware

A modern system needs intelligent hardware. That's why for AGAM G3 we fully rely on integrated industrial hardware made in Germany. The modular systems from Beckhoff, which have proven themselves in automation for many years, meet all the requirements we place on the basis for AGAM G3: reliable, robust and modularly expandable. And if nevertheless an error does occur, the system can be easily replaced without the service of a technician or a software installation – with a guaranteed supply of spare parts for at least 10 years.

Decentralized digitization for flexible installation concepts with reduced cabling

With its modular design, AGAM G3 offers the flexibility to digitize signals close to the measurement points. This eliminates the influence of interference signals over long analog routes. All digitized data are transmitted via regular network cable or optical fibre. In modern systems with several gas temperature measurement levels or many paths, the length of required shielded signal cable can thus be reduced to a great extent in large plants.
