Also known as the Glass Level Electrode or GLE, the Platinum Glass Level Sensor design is for use in hostile and high-temperature areas of the forehearth.
At the very tip of the assembly, the extruded platinum element makes point of contact with the glass surface,which creating a full circuit.
The complete electrical circuit creates a signal used to monitor the delicate level of the molten glass in the forehearth.
Due to innovative design, CCPI Europe’s platinum glass level sensor assemblies offer many advantages. These include being reliable, cost-effective, accurate, and above all can deliver a significant reduction in maintenance downtime.
We construct all our Noble Metal Assemblies in a cleanroom environment to ensure the highest level of precision and accuracy.
CCPI Europe utilises extensive automation allowing for optional thermal calibration. This is within our UKAS accredited thermal calibration laboratory (No. 0600) (ISO 17025).
The CCPI Europe Calibration laboratory operates in the temperature range of –200 °C up to and including 1600 °C. It proudly holds some of the tightest uncertainties of measurement for thermal calibrations held by a commercial calibration laboratory.
