ABOUT ENCIRC

Encirc is unique. From the manufacturing of container glass, to modern filling facilities, to warehousing and logistics, Encirc is the only company to offer customers a complete supply chain service. It is based at two sites. One in Derrylin, Ireland, and the other in Elton, Cheshire, UK.

THE CHALLENGE

Encirc was looking for an innovative temperature measurement solution at its glass production plant to replace an existing CCTV system. The company required high-quality images for operators to monitor batch line/flow and improve set up of its 20 under-port, dual-impulse regenerative burners. Prior to the uptake of a solution, it would typically take Encirc at least four hours to produce a thermal optical profile of a cross-fired container furnace, due to its 20 to 30-minute reversal time. The extended time frame, in addition to significant risk of human error due to the measurement position and limited resources to complete the profile meant temperature profiles often were only taken when it was absolutely necessary, such as quality problem.
