Optris Bottom Up Glass inspection system for glass tempering plants

With the new Glass inspection system from Optris, there is a new approach to temperature measurement in the production of low-e glass. Low emissivity glass poses a major challenge for infrared devices which are traditionally measuring the glass temperature from above when the panes moved out of the furnace during production.

The new Bottom Up Glass inspection system solves this problem by having two infrared imagers installed underneath the tempering line which measure the temperature on the non-coated high emissivity side of the glass.

The combination of two VGA imagers with a maximum field of view of 111° results in an excellent 1600 pixels scan line resolution on maximum 4,3 m (14.11 ft) scan width.

An ultra-fast CTlaser 4M pyrometer with 90 µs exposure time combined with the digitally controlled lens protection system (DCLP) is a reliable safeguard for both infrared cameras in case of glass breakage.

Areas of application for the Bottom Up Glass inspection system

The Bottom Up Glass inspection system solves the problems with temperature measurement of Low-E glass with a new approach. By having two infrared imagers installed underneath the tempering line they always measure the temperature on the non-coated high emissivity side of the glass. IR technology development resulting in those new compact designed imagers made this underneath installation possible which was not thinkable before with old bulky line scanners.

The combination of two VGA imagers with a maximum field of view of 111° results in an excellent 1600 pixels scan line resolution on maximum 4,3 m (14,11 ft) scan width.

In addition to determining the temperature distribution, the system also calculates the glass surface area.

An ultra-fast CTlaser 4M pyrometer with 90 µs exposure time combined with the digitally controlled lens protection system (DCLP) is a reliable safeguard for both infrared cameras in case of glass breakage. These shutters also significantly increase the maintenance intervals for cleaning the optics and completely eliminate the need for additional and time-consuming blowing of the optics with compressed air.
