Summary

The measurement and control of furnace atmospheres for ceramic processing is discussed. Linde sells gases to a variety of industries. Many of these gases are used for protective atmospheres in furnance. Linde has developed expertise in the analysis of furnace atmospheres. This presentation deals with how to measure gases, the benefits gained by measuring, and Linde's experience in the ceramics industry.
