Summary

A study of the use of pyrometric cones to monitor firing of porcelain enamel ware in the plant and in the laboratory is described. Comparison of data using pyrometric cones with data from traditional furnace profiles is presented. Potential benefits from greater use of pyrometric cones in porcelain enamel furnaces are discussed.
