Test Equipment & Instruments / Glass Evaluation TS580 Tin Side Detector The TS580 Tin Side Detector is a compact and portable meter for identifying the tin side of float glass for automotive glass fabrication, glass tempering and the manufacture of mirrors or other types of coated glass. The patented device is easy to operate and utilises a short wave ultraviolet lamp, which is powered by a built-in rechargeable lithium battery, for detection of the tin side. Usage 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.

Test Equipment & Instruments / Glass Evaluation RWG-EL Roller Wave Gauge The RWG-EL Roller Wave Gauge is an easy-to-use tool designed to evaluate the flatness of heat-treated glass. It can be used to measure the peak-to-valley depth of the roller wave as well as the flatness at the edge of the glass called edge lift. The gauge consists of two digital depth indicators mounted on an anodised aluminium base bonded to a Delrin® surface. Usage Roller wave and edge lift are deviations that occur in flat glass that has undergone thermal heat-treating in a horizontal roller hearth tempering furnace, due to the elevated temperatures. Monitoring of these deviations is an important quality control parameter for flat glass, especially when the lite is intended for use in a laminated or insulated unit where deformations can cause costly field failures. Although deviations cannot be eliminated completely, devices such as the RWG-EL allow glass processors to detect excessive roller wave or edge lift and adjust furnace or glass parameters accordingly to keep these deviations to a minimum. Features • Measures roller wave and edge lift in accordance with EN 1863-1 • Excellent results obtained provided that the gauge is properly used and maintained • Can be connected to a PC with the optional USB cable • Precision digital display • Practical and easy to use Specifications Wavelength maximum Resolution Distortion sensitivity Adjustable 0.01mm 10mdpt Email: info@fgtrading.co.za | Web: www.fgtrading.co.za 209
