Temperature monitoring solution

raytek.jpgRAYTEK and Datapaq, experts in noncontact and contact temperature monitoring, report they have developed the first combined dedicated temperature measurement solution for glass tempering.

The Raytek GS150 system uses a linescanner to measure infrared radiation of the glass sheets after they have been heated to melting point. It scans the sheets line by line as they are being transported from the furnace to the air quench, generating thermal images of each sheet.

Datapaq has developed a new Furnace Tracker system with an especially low-height thermal barrier. This system is based on a data logger that passes through the furnace as well as the air quench, taking temperature readings directly from the glass surface via thermocouples.
