Pyrosales temperature sensors for container glass manufacturers

Pyrosales is a leading supplier of temperature sensors to manufacturers of container glass in Australia.

The two major manufacturers of glass bottles in Australia, Amcor Ltd and Owens-Illinois Inc. have a long association with Pyrosales for the supply of high-temperature sensors that are employed in their glass manufacturing processes.  Furnaces in glass manufacturing facilities work at up to 1575°C, requiring platinum-based thermocouples, which are used to measure the furnace atmosphere temperature, the furnace glass temperature, and the temperature of the glass as it flows through the fore hearth, where it is conditioned to efficiently make glass bottles.The crown thermocouples typically measure the highest temperature, and depending on the type of glass and temperatures required, will use type B thermocouples with recrystallised alumina sheaths.A specialised platinum sheath is used for measuring glass temperatures, as the glass is both abrasive and corrosive.The temperature measurement is also critical in ensuring the efficient manufacture of the glass bottles. The sophisticated controls in place in glass manufacturing processes require tri-level and bi-level temperature measurement.

Pyrosales has extensive experience supplying thermocouples to the glass industry and can custom-design and manufacture the temperature sensors required.
