GAS FILLING CONVEYOR
★ OPTIMISED FOR SPECIAL GLASS ★ DEVELOPED WITH LEADING GLASSWORKS ★ HIGH QUALITY STANDARDS
The GFC allows gas filling of the double glazed unit after the press. It does this simply and safely on the production line, without interrupting or slowing the production cycle. The GFC enables uniform gas filling and avoids waste by taking advantage of laminar gas flow. A special probe, inserted into the top of the panel through a pre-drilled hole, detects the gas or gas mixture filling percentage within the double glazed unit, ensuring the proper venting of the air previously present in the cavity. The holes made for introducing gas are then sealed automatically by means of 2 nozzles that inject butyl, thus ensuring the frame is air tight and the gas is retained within the cavity. The gas concentration level and the relative gas filling times are managed directly on the machine through a dedicated software programme which also allows for data storage, production cataloguing, as well as management/recording of the volume of gas used. The system can allow for two different types of gas to be injected into triple glazed units and also permits gas filling of shaped glasses.
