Gedevelop - Equipment for glass fiberizer industry

GFM – Temperature measurement, Optionally
The glass flow measurement system can be equipped with a built-in pyrometer. The pyrometer measures the temperature of the glass stream at the same time as the glass flow is measured and controlled.

Temperature measurement of the glass stream gives more information and improves the control of the glass properties and fibre forming.
Pyrometer principle
The two-colour ratio pyrometer has an inherent insensitivity to changes in emissivity and is specially designed for an accurate glass temperature measurement. It consists of a module fitted inside the standard camera. The temperature is displayed on the touch screen.

Intensity fluctuations caused by varying size and shape of the glass stream or the presence of dust, smoke or gas along the optical path of the pyrometer is eliminated by the ratio detecting principle.

New Pyrometer for the GFM system
Gedevelop has developed a new pyrometer for applications within the glass wool industry. Measuring the temperature of the glass stream in glass wool manufacturing will increase the understanding of the fiberizing process and improve the potential and accuracy in controlling it. It will give the possibility to improve the glass properties and fibre forming.
