Summary

A voltammetric measuring setup consisting of a special sensor and a commercially available potentiostat was installed in an industrial green glass melting tank. An optimized scheme for evaluating the measured square-wave voltammograms has been developed and integrated in a software program capable of controlling the sensor and calculating the concentrations. The particular advantage of the sensor system is its continuous working method. Compared to XRF, the measurements require fewer personnel – even in the case of frequent measurements – and the result is available earlier. Square-wave voltammetry in industrial glass melts has been developed into a quantitative technique.
