Sensor Development for the Glass Industry
Varner, James R. and Seward, Thomas P. and Schaeffer, Helmut A.
This work summarizes the different activities undertaken at the University of Missouri-Rolla on developing and testing techniques and instrumentations for the glass industry. Current work includes: (1) on-line measurement of NaOH vapor in the combustion chamber, (2) on-line monitoring of wall refractory thicknesses, and (3) analysis of flame images for burner control and optimization. Limitations and advantages are listed and compared to other current techniques.
