Summary

A practical application of the effect of iron oxide on the transmission of glass is described. Use of the ir range of transmission as an Index for checking and maintaining good bushing operations is discussed. It is found that energy use can be reduced significantly in glass making operations where iron oxide content can be effectively controlled.
