JRG/A Glass Thermometer - ideal for plate and float glass temperatures  
Plate and float glass temperatures during the cooling and annealing processes must be kept extremely uniform or with carefully controlled gradients. The temperature uniformity of the glass across the width of the bath in the float process is also important.

These difficult measurements can be undertaken, simply and rapidly, with the Land Precision Glass Thermometer/Probe.

The unit comprises:
A miniature radiation thermometer only 43mm/1.7in x 28mm/1.1in dia which measures radiation originating from the surface of the glass.
A water cooled probe incorporating an air purge to cool the thermometer and keep the window free from dirt and condensation.

Twin stainless steel tubes carry the cooling water, a small flow of compressed air for the thermometer window and the electrical connections.The thermometer has been designed for ease of handling consistent with strength. Operating lengths up to 4.5m/15 ft are available.

Rugged, fast response and reliable
Does not see through the glass - waveband specially selected to 4.8 to 5.2m
Used in lehr, tower and float bath
Spot checks for production control
Extended surveys for investigation
