UP-Tronik is a highly efficient top and bottom convection system, utilizing pre-heated air at 700° C, delivered above and below the level of the rollers. The UP-Tronik technology meets the demands for most challenging Low E glass varieties on the market today, with the ability to process glass types with emissivity of e=0.01. The distribution of air consists of a network of stainless-steel pipes with nozzles located above and below the rollers, divided in areas longitudinally, to achieve the desired convective profile.
The UP-Tronik system manages each convection pipe percentage of air directed to the glass and handles a variety of recipes to achieve the highest in glass quality. The Up-Tronik heating system is an integrated combination system, offering tempering line operators the choice of convection or radiation based on the desired glass type to be processed.
