PaneraTech has successfully demonstrated measurement of residual fused-cast AZS thickness on a float line surface.

A global float glass manufacturer requested a blind trial of the SmartMelter RTS Sensor on one of its furnaces in Europe before the glass line was lowered for hot repair.  Blind Trial DetailsOne week before the repair, the PaneraTech team measured blocks on both sides of the float line furnace.A total of eight blocks were measured, and PaneraTech submitted those measurements to the manufacturer without knowledge of actual AZS thickness.

 

Results

Once the glass was lowered to a safe level, the blocks were recovered and the manufacturer compared the actual AZS thickness with the SmartMelter RTS Sensor data. The measurements that PaneraTech submitted were within 5 mm (0.2 inches) of the actual thickness of the blocks.
