GGC and SVA Join Forces to Develop Next-Generation Camera Systems

Glass Global Consulting and SVA Fernseh are joining forces to develop next-generation furnace camera systems to identify problems and changes in glass and offer options to increase productivity

Glass Global Consulting GmbH (GGC) and SVA Fernseh GmbH (SVA) are joining forces to develop next-generation intelligent furnace camera systems to quickly identify problems and changes in glass and offer options to increase productivity. These camera systems will in particular visualise all types of flow patterns in the combustion atmosphere of any type of glass melting furnace. The AIF project is the basis of the collaboration between SVA and GGC, and will be finalised end of 2013.

IEVB, university of Clausthal, is the R&D partner responsible for the mathematical, graphical and flow basic developments.
“Visualisation instead or in combination with CFD will be a significant step to better and faster understand glass melting furnaces. The collaboration with SVA will enable GGC to fast introduce the new system into the market.”, Hans Mahrenholtz, MD of GGC said.
“Furnace camera systems in the future will do more than only displaying flames. A collaboration with GGC enables SVA to access innovative R&D resources.”, Axel Jürgens, MD of SVA added.
