A common measurement challenge for today’s glass manufacturers is the need for consistent, accurate temperature control. Glass furnaces operate over high temperatures ranging from +1100 °C to +1600 °C. Associated instrumentation must therefore offer necessary extreme survivability for accurate, repeatable measurements. To ensure these parameters are met, rare metal thermocouples, such as those offered by TT Electronics under our Roxspur Measurement & Control brand, are most commonly specified. The figure below depicts the steps of a typical glass manufacturing process. It further illustrates the wide temperature extremes within the environment.
