SmartMelter® Demonstration Program (SDP)

PaneraTech is currently enrolling customers for its SmartMelter® Demonstration Program. The program’s objective is to have glass manufacturers experience SmartMelter® first hand and better understand the sensors, the software, and the furnace inspection.

Under this program:

  • Customer identifies a furnace that is at critical stage (i.e., planned for overcoat or glass leak concern through sidewalls).
  • PaneraTech maps the furnace and enters it into SmartMelter® XSight software
  • PaneraTech trains customer to use the sensors and the XSight software
  • Trained customer personnel and PaneraTech jointly carry out furnace inspection and transfers the measurement data to the XSight software
  • Customer views the actual health of their furnace on XSight and has access to the XSight for 6 months.
