Safety When Working with Glass

Working with glass involves several risks. Being around high temperature equipment and hazardous chemicals poses risks as well as the possibility of burns and ergonomic stress.

It’s important to make sure your workers have had safety training and are provided a safe working environment.The Batch Process and FurnaceThe first step in glass manufacturing is the batch process.When raw materials are fed into a glass melt furnace, they will reach molten temperatures. When the chemical residue of these materials are super heated, it evaporates into the air. These vaporized chemicals are hazardous to one’s health. The exhaust must be functioning properly to ensure these harmful particulates are being removed.

UL508A Certification

The control system on your glass melting furnace should also comply with UL508A requirements. UL 508A certification is an industrial control panel directive, which is sought by electrical inspectors. The UL 508A Listing Mark on an industrial control panel provides evidence of third party certification to the municipal inspection authority and to the purchaser of the panel. A UL 508A Listing Mark shows that the panel complies with an acceptable safety standard.

Deltech batch glass melting furnaces were designed in conjunction with Sandia Laboratories to provide the reliability and durability needed for batch melt processes and all control systems are certified by Intertek to comply with UL508A requirements.
