Application Note: Glass Tempering AMETEK_Land_Application_Note_Glass_Tempering_Rev_1

TEMPERATURE MEASUREMENTS IN GLASS TEMPERING Tempered glass – sometimes called toughened or safety glass – is glass which has been heat-treated and then rapidly cooled, in a controlled manner, in an air quench section. This process makes the glass much more resilient than plain flat glass. Producing tempered glass free of visual distortions requires a uniform temperature to be achieved across the whole surface of each glass lite. This requires accurate temperature monitoring across the entire width of the glass.
