Glass | Production Optimization in the Float Glass Process

Precise Temperature Control

After the tin bath, the flat glass band has a temperature of about 60°C; the first infrared camera in line scan mode is applied for temperature monitoring at the transition to the cooling zone. The glass is transported through different cooling sections where at several points infrared cameras are installed to observe the whole process and to ensure an optimal quality.

Process temperature: 50 °C to 600 °C
