Portable Glass Mould Temperature Measurement

pyromter for glass industries

Temperature measurement plays a crucial role in container glass making, The temperature of the glass mould has a direct impact on the quality of the final glass product. By maintaining precise control over the mould temperature, manufacturers can ensure consistent and uniform glass formation. Deviations in mould temperature can lead to variations in glass thickness, surface defects, or other quality issues.

Glass moulds are subjected to high temperatures and thermal cycling during the glass forming process. Continuous monitoring of the mould temperature helps ensure that it remains within the recommended operating range. Maintaining the appropriate temperature helps to prolong the life of the mould and prevent premature wear ordamage caused by thermal stress.
Glass manufacturing processes consume significant amounts of energy. Accurate temperature measurement enables manufacturers to optimize the energy consumption. Temperature measurement of the glass mould is essential in container glass making to ensure high-quality glass products, optimize the glass forming process, extend mould life, enhance energy efficiency, and enable effective process control.

AST 360 rotation probe

Accurate Sensing Technologies AST offer PGM+ (Portable Glass Mould Pyrometer) for accurate temperature measurement of glass moulds in container glass industry. The pyrometer utilizes an infrared detector, allowing for non-contact temperature measurement. This feature is advantageous as it eliminates the need for physical contact with the hot glass mould, ensuring safety for the operator and minimizing the risk of contamination. The pyrometer provides instantaneous temperature readings, enabling quick and real-time monitoring of the glass mould temperature. PGM+ has ability to store 1000 temperature readings, along with date/time information, provides valuable data for analysis and quality control purposes. The Fiber Optic probe can be rotated 360° so that the operator can easily measure the temperature of both part of the mould.
The pyrometer’s rigid fiber optic probe offers flexibility and ease of use. It allows for accurate temperature
measurement even in hard-to-reach areas or complex mould geometries. The pyrometer is equipped
with an easy-to-read OLED display, ensuring clear visibility of temperature readings. The operating
button provides user-friendly control for data logging. PGM+ is battery Powered and Rechargeable. The
pyrometer’s use of three AAA size rechargeable cells makes it portable and convenient.
