Temperature monitoring on flat glass lines
Careful monitoring of glass temperatures and of production equipment and machinery is the only way to ensure that product quality will meet stringent marketplace requirements. During the various production stages, temperatures are mostly measured without contact, eg in the glass melting furnace, in the working tank, in the feeder or in the gob.

Online Dissolved Gas Analysis
Transformer and Load Tap Changer (LTC) assets are among the most expensive pieces of equipment for electric utilities. Preserve these assets by using an appropriate DGA (Dissolved Gas Analysis) diagnostic method to improve service reliability, avoid transformer failure, and defer capital expenditures for new transformer assets.
