Batch Inlet

Batch Inlet (Container / Fibreglass / Rockwool / Flat / Speciality / Tableware)
Batch is a sand-based mixture of minerals often mixed with cullet that is added to the furnace and melted to create molten glass. It is becoming increasingly common for the Batch and or Cullet to be pre heated prior to the Batch charger. 

Monitoring the temperatures at the inlet to the batch charger confirms uniformity ensuring the batch melts at the expected point within the process, it also helps monitor the batch for any impurities which might affect glass quality.

By ensuring the batch temperature is within the desired parameters, thermal monitoring supports the quality of the glass which is produced in the melt tank. It also helps prevent damage to the batch charger and melt tank from overheated batch.
