Here is list of special Glass measurement products we offer aimed at single specialised applications
The AMETEK Land Fibre-optic Model FG radiation thermometer is a fibre-optics based 2-wire temperature sensor which has been specifically designed to solve measurement problems and improve control of process temperatures in the glass industry. It is ideally suited to measuring temperatures n the glass forehearth
The LANDSCAN Glass Toughening System incorporates the LSPhd 5 series scanner which samples the glass surface up to 100,000 times per second using high performance optics allowing detection of even the smallest variations in temperature. The signals are transmitted via a single pre-assembled cable to a dedicated industrial processor unit which produces process control signals and provides data to the display PC.
The Land FLT5A is designed specifically for use in float lines, measuring glass surface temperature in the range 250 to 1100 °C, with excellent precision and long-term stability.
In order to draw high quality low loss optical fibre with the required strength and attenuation the temperature of the drawing tower furnace must be stable and the temperature precisely controlled.
Efficient, high yield production of low loss, high bandwidth optical fibre for telecommunication demands precise measurement and control of preform temperature during the various deposition processes employed.
Plate and float glass temperatures during the cooling and annealing processes must be kept extremely uniform or with carefully controlled gradients. The temperature uniformity of the glass across the width of the bath in the float process is also important.
