In-situ Approaches to Measuring Contaminants in Float Bath Atmosphere

Summary

The iX Challenge competition, delivered by KTN, is supporting Pilkington Technology Management Limited (PTML), part of NSG Group, in reaching out to its network to identify innovative solutions that could lead to approaches across their business to deliver sustainable net zero manufacturing. Successful solution providers (industry or academia) to this challenge will be given a commercial opportunity to deliver their solution and receive support from PTML, KTN and the wider Innovate UK network. The Innovation Exchange programme is working alongside PTML to help them to identify innovative solutions to assist in the detection of contaminants in the Float bath area of their glass production process. These contaminants can lead to faults on the glass which have potential to adversely affect the final product, restricting its maximum energy conservation or generation performance.
