Clear Insight Into Furnace Health

SmartMelter® is a comprehensive solution for furnace life optimization and management.


Longer Furnace Life

Extend the life of your furnace with a clear view of its true health. SmartMelter® measures the actual residual thickness of walls and helps you optimize the timing of overcoat and rebuild dates for longer furnace life. Operate longer with confidence by identifying early stage glass infiltration into the insulation.

Condition-Based Maintenance

Avoid untimely overcoats and repairs. Our solution combines two patented sensors with digital mapping to give you precise data about the overall health of your furnace. SmartMelter® lets you see into furnace walls to identify areas that need local repair, so maintenance is only performed when and where it is necessary.

Electronic Asset Management

Keep all of your furnace inspection and maintenance records in one place, organized electronically for easy access and evaluation. Our software platform provides you with new insights for better utilization of furnaces.
