Summary

Batch blanket movement of two borosilicate glass furnaces was video recorded utilizing a CLAVE endoscope system. The two systems were initially air-gas fired with additional electric boosting. In 1992, it was decided to convert one of the two nearly equal, side port, regenerative furnaces to oxy-fuel The other furnace remained on air-gas, so we had an opportunity to observe the similarities and differences between the two systems. The endoscope equipment used will be described, as will be its application. Results of the oxy-fuel firing system will be presented.
