With the HORN® inspection service the glass plant team can easily observe the inside of the furnace by endoscope and exactly determine necessary repair works or remaining lifespan. Nearly all corners and parts of the tank superstructure, port neck and regenerators can be inspected by using water-cooled optical lenses and digital camera systems.
Finally, all pictures and videos are then optimised and a report is supplied with recommendations regarding repair requirements or an estimation of the remaining lifespan. Outer visual inspections, supported by our thermal camera, can also be provided by HORN®. Thanks to these specialised services, necessary repairs can be evaluated and performed before any damage appears. That maximises the lifespan of the furnace.
