Summary

This paper will present the results of plant trials conducted on a new, low-density, prewashed profile setter at Pfaltzgraff s bone china facility. These new profile setters are one-third of the weight of conventional setters and are prewashed with a high-alumina coating. Data on reduced energy consumption, durability, and labor savings associated with prewashed setters will be presented. In addition to the above results, both room- and elevated-temperature profiles of the cordierite setter material will also be presented.
