Tin Batch Coolers
The cooling of the narrow section can be done in two ways. One of them is called conductive cooling. This will be carried out by the tin coolers. By cooling the tin the glass ribbon will be cooled down by conduction.
The tin cooler consists of the side sealing in the side wall of the tin bath, a sealed and moveable pipe feedthrough, a cooling pipe with a connection for water supply and return. The return of the water is controlled by a flow sensor. In order to adjust/change the depth of immersion the cooling pipe contains a lifting spindle. The purpose of the tin cooler is to achieve the correct lifting temperature at the exit end of the tin bath.
