With the fast development to build industry and glass manufacturing, glass deep processing industry in addition has developed extensively. This article mainly bryanston glass describes the wide application of flat glass appliance in the glass industry.
- Reasoning behind glass appliance
As the special equipment applied in glass industry, glass automatic washers are used for cleaning and drying out original glass sheets. According to cleaning method, it can be famous directory glass washer(vertical glass washing machine) and horizontally glass machine. Because of the issue of glass size and directory structural, at present directory glass appliance is major used for producing I. Grams. unit with aluminum spacer. The horizontally glass appliance, although it takes more area, has been applied in more extensive fields due to its more high efficiency and excellent structure.
- Wide application of flat glass appliance
Now we majorly introduce the wide application of horizontally glass appliance.
(1). Cleaning application for ordinary glass
The cleaning process of flat machine for ordinary glass is straightforward relatively. The tanks can be feed with industrial water without heating. Because the surface of glass is not made any treatment, there is no special dependence on the brushes on the glass machine. At the same time, there is also no too hard to follow dependence on water PH. About the air chef’s knife design, we can adopt normal structural but must be sure the wind power can be adjusted. When we clean the glass with thickness 3-19 mm, the design of distance between rollers cannot be considered making too large. Generally speaking, the manufacturing plant could use middle or small appliance to do the cleaning and drying out job for raw part of ordinary glass.
(2). Cleaning application for warm-edge insulating glass
For the production of warm edge insulating glass (with flexible spacer, such as duralite or duraseal or superspacer), the cleaning requirements to the raw glass sheets are higher. Operators should ensure the good cleaning and drying out for surface in order to easily make the spacer bonding for the following steps, meanwhile, avoiding surface scratch. For most developed countries and areas in the world, in order to make the entire warm edge I. Grams. You, more and more industrial facilities adopt horizontally appliance. This sort cleaning equipment consists of feeding section, washing section, drying out section and output section and in the washing section, there are three tanks which feature of cycling heating water with the suitable PH (6-9), meanwhile, the equipment must be installed with high quality plastic transfer rollers to avoid glass scratch. In addition, engineers should design special air chef’s knife structure applied in drying out section of the machine, such as side-by-side multiple wind blade design, and guarantee the enough wind power and make it adjustable, as the best drying out result, the air motorized inflator can blow hot air. All these considerations can do outstanding drying out job: completely cleaning up or wasting off water in multi-angle and much area. Please also note that in order to match the entire production line, the speed of glass machine also need to be regulated.
Opinion: the production process of flexible spacer I. Grams. normally contains below machines: flat glass appliance, flexible spacer assembly table, glass assembly table, heated roller press machine and glass convey table. Total production line has two-side or single side establishment. Glass is offered to glass machine in the horizontally state then starts its first process until to finish hot-press wrapping up job in heated roller machine. Around the production line, small admin devices, such as gas filling machine, duraseal spool stand are also equipped.
(3). Cleaning application for sprayed glass
Before washing coating glass by the horizontally appliance, we should look at the choice of brush and water quality. In cleaning process, the sprayed glass sheets should not stop under brushes to avoid damaging the film. As the solidity of the brush may be different, we should also check the film after cleaning to confirm that if the brush do some damage on top of glass or not. When we clean the MSVD low-e sprayed glass, the best way is not to use recycled water, because these films are very sensitive to the PH value, if using recycled water, operators should monitor water PH value constantly.
Using demineralization or deionization water to apply sprayed glass to ensure no remains when drying out glass. However, the technology of this process may increase water corrosive, so we should test the sample water and confirm no side effects occur. In addition, before large-scale production, we also have to do some trial production to determine that if the water can work well in the system.
In real operation, solve the above problems, both horizontally glass appliance and directory glass appliance can well complete cleaning and drying out job to sprayed glass
(4). Cleaning application for other glass (such as tempered, laminated and safety glass)
As above glass features of large size, thickness and weight, industrial facilities often use horizontally appliance to finish their cleaning job. For the directory machine, due to its structural limitations, it can not suitable for washing large size glass. By means of choosing appropriate soft brushes and using different air chef’s knife structure, the horizontally glass machine can fulfill the washing and drying out demand for above glass.
- Prospect of horizontally appliance
Within the last decade, building glass has been developed in the direction of insulating, energy-saving, safety and decoration, so the horizontally automatic washers are also improved with the same direction. Particularly after the solar glass, conductive glass, foam glass and other special glass are widely put into market, the factoies put forward higher cleaning requirements to above special glass. The particular performance is that we are not only upgrade or increase the equipment structure, but also make the particular difference on brush manufacturing, selection of advertising plastic rollers, especially enable the studies of cleaning system and air chef’s knife structure meet different special requirements. We can expect, along with social development in future, more and more special glasses will come out and the horizontally appliance would also be manufactured cooperatively with them and this industry will become more specific, detailed and standard.
