Tin Bath Inerting

Typically 6-9% H2 is added with N2 to create controlled atmosphere.

Fresh N2/H2 atmosphere improve float glass quality

The maintenance of the correct tin bath atmosphere allows high-quality float glass production. This is done providing fresh Tin bath atmosphere with the correct H2 concentration.

Maintain correct H2 concentration
Correct H2 concentration prevent oxidation due to air leak
Correct H2 concentration maintain H2O concentration at low level
