CelSian will host an introductory training course on bubble diagnosis in glass production later this month.

The course will take place over two half days from 20 - 21 November 2023, both online and in-person in Eindhoven, Netherlands.

The course will take place from 14:00 to 18:00 (CET) on both days.

The training will provide an overview of what to do when encountering bubble and seed defects, which are the most common cause of rejects in glass production.

The course starts with the formation of bubbles during the batch-to-melt conversion and explains the different physical and chemical phenomena leading to their change in composition, size, and removal from the melt.

Downstream sources of gases and the formation of bubbles during container and float forming are also described. The course ends with a step-by-step approach to react in case of a bubble upset.

Speakers include CelSian trainers Penny Marson, Glass Consultant and Researcher, Johan Lotter, CFD Engineer, and Cristian Hernández, Project Leader.
