Berthold's glass level measurement couples nuclear measurement principles with an exclusive calibration configuration and procedure. Berthold's customers replacing optical based measurements have subsequently experienced downtime reductions previously associated with high batch bin level and glass pull runaway.

Nuclear level source and detector are both mounted external to the furnace refractory. In some cases, a refractory "cutout" may be required in the exterior refractory layer. In these cases, however, harsh furnace conditions are still contained within the inner refractory layers.
Berthold utilizes linear slides to provide accurate, repeatable, and robust glass level measurements. During calibration, raising and lowering the radiation source and radiation detector in lockstep is critical to ensuring an accurate calibration. Berthold's linear slides and multiple calibration points provide customers with best in class float glass level reliability and accuracy.
