During the production of float glass, one side of the molten glass comes into contact with a bath of molten tin. Traces of tin or tin oxide are deposited on one surface of the glass which is henceforth known as the “tin side”. For certain applications in glass processing it is necessary to know which side of the glass has been in contact with the tin during float glass production.
The TS580 can identify the tin side by making use of the transmission viewing method, the reflection viewing method or the edge viewing method. When the tin side is detected the text indicator with the word ‘TIN’ will appear. Wearing UV prevention safety glasses is recommended before conducting any tests.
