Silicate Science, Volume VIII: Industrial Glass: Glazes and Enamels presents a focused discussion regarding glass fusion furnace construction as well as improvement for the efficiency of the various systems involved in glass engineering. The research papers presented in this volume are limited in the discussion of the physical and chemical reaction phenomena which occur in glass tank furnace and electric furnaces of other shapes.
The book comprises of six major chapters where some chapters further divide into two parts. Most of the topics covered in this book include important improvements in the reactions of some batches, homogenization and fining of raw melts, and the behavior of the glass melts in situations where refractories come into contact with the molten material.
This volume will serve as a rich source of information to students and researchers in the glass engineering, manufacturing, and technology.
