Rapidox II

Features of "Rapidox II" Redox Measurement Equipment

Rapidox II is an oxygen measuring equipment manufactured by Glass Service, Czech. 

This device measures the concentration of oxygen contained in molten glass around 1,650 ℃. By knowing oxidation-reduction (redox) in the molten glass, it becomes possible to optimize the fining effect and to control the color tone of the glass of the glass. In addition, by measuring the oxygen concentration of the recovery cullet in advance, it is possible to stabilize the operation. Rapidox II has a fast response time (less than 10min), wide dynamic range (1-10^-9 bar), and high reproductivity (5mv at 1300℃).

By measuring oxygen activity of batch material provides valuable information regarding foaming and fining characteristics as well as final product properties, particularly color.

By using Rapidox II you will gain these benefits:
・Reduce waste
・Increases the use of recycled cullets
・Lower Environmental Contamination
・Optimizes Fining Process
・Decreased Energy Consumption

Please inquire us if interested.

Measurements for Specific Glass Manufacturers

Container Glass:
Rapidox II can be applied to measure the reduction of organic and other pollutants that could be present in the cullets. Values measured can be used to correct the batch mixture in order to stabilize the color and quality of final products.

Float Glass:
Rapidox II could aid in control of the fining and foaming process which take place during float glass melting. This could determine the amount of fining agents such as sulfates and minor amounts of coke or blast furnace slag.

Fiber Glass:
Rapidox II can show the effect of different raw materials upon the radiative properties of the fibers during the forming process including fiber breakage.
