Combining two devices using two different temperature measurement technologies, Fluke Process Instruments provides the glass industry with more information on high-value applications like float glass manufacturing, glass tempering, and windshield forming and laminating. Temperature profiling runs with a data logger enable operators to quickly optimise furnace settings for new products and to identify problems with burners or airflow. They are complemented by a thermal imager installed at the furnace exit for 100 % production monitoring and traceability.
Datapaq Furnace Tracker profiling systems travel through heat-treatment and quench processes. They record the product temperature curves via up to 20 thermocouples cemented to the glass pane. These industry-specific profiling systems consist of a data logger, a thermal barrier, and software with advanced analysis, reporting, and archiving functions.
