Peak Sensors and Orientis Technology have worked together to support a glass plant in Russia improve its operation performance and quality output through reviewing and changing the temperature sensors within the regenerator of the plant.
The customer was changing its thermocouple temperature sensors within the glass plants regenerator every two weeks. This impacted on the glass plants operation performance, delivery and costs. It included the customer spending time and effort changing the probes regularly. Which also lead to increased plant costs for the purchase of the number of thermocouples needed for these frequent changes.
The glass plant with the support of our Russian agent Orientis Technology and Peak Sensors technical team identified areas of improvement with the thermocouple design within the regenerator and developed rare metal thermocouple probes with a ceramic sheath to better suit the glass plant leading to improved performance, quality and reduced costs.
