This seminar is intended to introduce the participants to the fundamental principles of proper batch and furnace operation in order to obtain acceptable glass quality while limiting the occurrence of problems such as color variation, density, seeds, stones, cord, viscosity, thermal expansion and annealing. Participants will also be exposed to the techniques employed to obtain critical physical property measurements as well as an explanation of how to interpret the generated data.
Topics to be covered:
- Basic principles of glass chemistry
- Proper principles of batch and furnace operation
- Basic principles of glass quality tests
- Using data from quality control tests to detect and correct problems in batch and furnace operation
Seminar Duration: Four Days
