Already in 1973 the company CMV Hoven Messtechnik was founded. The target was the integration of high-quality measuring sensors in industrial applications. The product-range includes measuring equipment and electrical sensors for temperature, force, pressure, distance and electro-magnetic fields as well as mobile camera-technology for corona-detection in high voltage plants.

Over the years, infrared cameras for the industrial process- and production-control were developed (especially in the high-temperature sector from 400°C up to 2.000°C) and successfully introduced in several plants. So in 1998 the fastest uncooled infrared-camera of the whole world (HRP-250) was developed in cooperation with DIAS Infrared GmbH.

In the year 2000 the companies DIAS Infrared GmbH, Sobotta GmbH and CMV Hoven GmbH commonly developed an infrared camera with a watercooled combustion furnace probe and flame filter. This camera is able to measure constantly the temperature in the background through the flames (24 hours/day, 365 days/year).

In 2005 the growing product line “infrared process measuring technology” was liberated from CMV Hoven GmbH, and the company CMV Systems GmbH & Co. KG was founded.

Our infrared product line is particularly characterized in where hardest conditions require the application of this technique.

So we specialized in the application of heat-image-technology for burning processes in smelting plants for steel and glass as well as especially in garbage incineration plants and coal power stations.

For the constructors of garbage incineration- and EBS-combustion-plants, these infrared cameras are the “key” for an optimization of the firing process in combination with the DCS and the reduction of pollution.

Since early 2006 these cameras (PYROINC) are applied in power plants too. For example, there will be controlled approx. 7.000 m² wall-sections per boiler for slagging in the “Rheinisches Kohlerevier” (Lignite extraction area nearby Cologne / Germany) . An automatic controlling system is directing the water lance shower cleaner for the boiler cleaning according to the actual requirement, which was calculated with the images of the IR-Cameras.

CMV Systems GmbH & Co. KG disposes of several patents for these techniques, some of them are protected worldwide. With a group of specialists of our main office in Moenchengladbach and branch offices in Munich and Rostock we offer allround-solutions, starting with conceptions, feasibility-studies, software-developments as well as hardware- and protection-equipment up to setting into operation, training and maintenance.

CMV Systems GmbH & Co. KG is the market leader for industrial infrared systems in combustion chambers and can display numerous installations all over the word.
