Thermal Homogeneity Index – the truth revealed.
The most widely accepted measure of forehearth operation is the Thermal Homogeneity Index – a single figure result based on a simple mathematical analysis of a matrix of 9 temperature measurements made at the front end of the forehearth. The calculation is designed top give a value of 100 if all 9 temperatures are exactly the same.
Juergen Groessler, SORG Glass Conditioning Manager, has produced a paper giving interesting details of the measurements, including important information about the quite significant limitations of the measurement. The paper has recently been published in the September edition of the leading glass industry magazine GLASS.
