Abstract
This paper proposes a visual estimator for temperature and oxygen content for closed loop control of carbonization furnace in the production of activated carbon. The carbonization process involves thermal decomposition of vegetal material in the absence of air; this requires rigorous sensing and control of these two variables. The system consists of two cameras, a thermographic camera to estimate the temperature, and a traditional digital camera to estimate the oxygen content. In both cases we use similarity measures between images to estimate the value of the variables into the furnace, estimation that is used to control the furnace flame. The algorithm is tested with reference photos taken at the production plant, and the experimental results prove the performance of the proposed technique.
