Exactus® Temperature Measurements for Improved Fiberglass Bushing Control

One of the long-standing challenges of structural fiberglass manufacturing has been achieving a stable and reproducible bushing temperature. Due to variation in location and attachment welding of the control thermocouples, the operating set point temperature of new bushing assemblies can vary widely. As the bushing ages, the control thermocouples will also drift requiring frequent adjustments to the process set point over time. These two factors combine such that any two bushings in a process line are rarely operating at the same temperature.

Gob Temperature Control Whitepaper

To eliminate the uncertainty of the actual gob temperature, ACSI and BASF have developed a solution that accurately measures and controls the gob temperature. The system utilizes direct measurement of each gob through the use of the Exactus® advanced gob temperature sensor (GTS) produced by BASF. By combining the measurement from the GTS with ACSI’s advanced model based control (BrainWave®), exceptional gob temperature stability and control is achieved at the point of entry to the forming process.
