Control of the electric heaters of the float systems with electronic power controller

Find out how in the cooling tunnel of a float glass plant the electronic power controller allows you to control the electric heaters based on the temperature profile and the cooling gradient

The cooling tunnel is a critical section in the float glass production process

This phase must be cooling controlled (hot to cold) to avoid any cracks on the glass sheet due to an incorrect temperature gradient. GPC three phase power controller is used to:

  • control resistive heaters;
  • provide various diagnostics including heaters break alarms, line voltage, protection fuses and overall health of the power controllers;
