  • Why to choose textured glass for covering on photovoltaic modules?

    Why to choose textured glass for covering on photovoltaic modules?

    The solar glass in the modules is specially textured to reduce reflections. The anti-reflective glass is said to increase module yields over those from conventional solar glass, particularly when the sun is low, as in the evening hours or winter months. Standard glass and polymer covers on photov...

  • WHAT IS THE MOST IMPORTANT FEATURE FOR TRIPLE SILVER GLASS TEMPERING?

    WHAT IS THE MOST IMPORTANT FEATURE FOR TRIPLE SILVER GLASS TEMPERING?

    In my opinion it is that the convection air must be heated into the matrix configuration. The reason is, that the silver glass reflects almost 100% of the radiation. Only convection guarantees uniform glass temperature. At the same time as the convection is heated, the capacity is increased. Actu...

  • Effects of return air flow for convection heating

    Effects of return air flow for convection heating

    Modern convection technologies have been manufactured now over 20 years. The real very good convection system was developed kind of accidentally. It was using of famous  radiation heating furnace of Tamglass Engineering, HTF and adding high convection into that. The furnace was named “CONVAIR”, ...

  • Does the shard size of tempered glass vary depending on the impact strength?

    Does the shard size of tempered glass vary depending on the impact strength?

    It is a very known behavior that the glass fragmentation depends on where you break the glass. This week, we’ve received the following question from Middle East: I have observed that when we break glass in the center with a lot of force, the fragments close to the point of impact are sometimes b...
