Glass Temperature Measurement

The glass industry measures temperatures of transparent and non-transparent objects. Special requirements of glass temperature measurement have to be considered. The main differences are related to the measurement of the glass surface temperature or core temperature.

Applications

Flat Glass Melt Tank Monitoring
Improved monitoring of the glass temperature can help ensure product uniformity and improve efficiency by reducing cycle time by controlling the melting process.

Temperature Measurement on Flat Glass Lines
For temperature measurement of flat glass production lines, pyrometers with a special spectral range are applicable. The surface temperature of the float glass has to be measured.

Glass Gob Temperature Measurement
Glass gob temperature measurement s only possible using non-contact thermometers. The pyrometers needed for this application have to be fast due to the high cycle frequency and must be capable of measuring the temperature inside the gob.
