Philip Ross. 

This DVD reviews aspects of glass melting furnaces from the recent past, current practices, as well as the direction the industry will progress into the future. A discussion of various furnace types will include their preferred attributes for different glass types. Similarly, the selection requirements for various furnace refractories types and their properties in service are discusses. The conversion from raw materials to molten glass in the "fusion" process within the furnace is detailed. The principles of key preferred operating parameters are discussed relative to glass quality, energy efficiency and furnace. Mechanisms of air emission generation and control within glass furnaces are briefly covered. A review of innovation trends is also offered which show where there is interest for future advancements in furnace configurations and operation.
