During the glass tempering process, what will cause white haze at the front and back ends of the glass sheet?
white haze are likely to appear at two ends of a glass sheet larger than 1.5 m2 with a shape close to a square.
After the glass sheet enters the glass tempering furnace, the heating temperature of the upper side of the glass tempering furnace is too high, resulting in the upper surface of the glass is heated faster than the lower surface. The glass sheet is arched upward in the process of thermal expansion, leaving only the front and back ends of the glass within 100~200mm to be in contact with the ceramic rollers while the middle part of the glass is suspended in the air.
Thus, during the oscillating movement, the area within 100~200mm near the two ends of the glass sheet bears the entire weight of the glass, causing excessive friction between the glass surface and the rollers, resulting in scratches on the glass surface which is usually called white haze.
Control the temperature difference between the upper and lower temperatures of the glass tempering machine within 10°C.
If the glass tempering furnace employs radiation heating, appropriately reduce the air pressure in the heat balance tube and start-up time coefficient of the tempering furnace.
For a convection glass tempering furnace, reduce the speed of the upper convection blower as appropriate.
In the meantime, increase the heating temperature of the lower section of the tempering furnace appropriately to reduce the temperature difference between the upper and lower parts.
