Successful process optimization through non-contact temperature measurements
Temperature measurement is key to the monitoring and optimization of energy-intensive glass production processes. Careful monitoring of glass temperatures and of production equipment and machinery is the only way to ensure that product quality will meet the stringent marketplace requirements. Temperatures during the various production stages are mostly measured without contact, e.g. in the glass melting furnace, in the working tank, in the feeder or in the gob.
The principal advantages of non-contact measurements are:
- Easy handling
- Increased throughput rates
- Fast response
- High flexibility
- Prolonged service lives
- No contamination of the molten glass
Digital measuring equipment with compact electronic components guarantees fast and precise temperature measurements and excellent repeatability.
