HEAT TRANSFER IN GLASS MELTING FURNACES (ADVANCED TRAINING)

13 October 2022
09:00 - 17:30
BE SURE TO REGISTER BEFORE september 29
Eindhoven (NL) and/or Online

This training describes the fundamentals of heat transfer mechanisms in the combustion space, batch blanket and glass melt.

It focusses on radiative heat transfer in glass melts depending on the presence of the colouring ions and the redox state of the melt. The effects of new, emerging, sustainable furnace technologies, like hydrogen combustion and full electric melting on the heat transfer mechanisms are elucidated.

Contents:

  • Heat transfer in the combustion space
