Non contact temperature measurement in the glass production industry

Measurement of temperature is vital for the optimisation of the energy intensive glass production processes. Precise monitoring of glass temperature and of production equipment and machinery is key in ensuring product quality of minimising energy consumption. Temperatures during the various production stages such as glass melting furnace, in the working tank, in the feeder or in the gob can be measured precisely using LumaSense non-contact infrared technology.

Advantages of non contact measurement

  • No contamination of the molten glass
  • Easy implementation
  • Increased throughput rates
  • Fast response
  • High flexibility
  • Prolonged service lives

Digital measuring equipment with compact electronic components guarantees fast and precise temperature measurements and excellent repeatability. LumaSense Technologies offers more than 50 years of experience in noncontact measuring technologies with two product lines:

IMPAC for pyrometry
