Gedevelop GFM System: An Overview

All over the world manufacturers in the glass fiberizing and glass wool industry are interested in increasing the quality of their products. The Gedevelop GFM System is suited for this process. It works with glass flow and collects data in real time for optimum control of the manufacturing process. This reduces material costs and shortens production downtime.

How exactly does this system work? The system uses a camera which looks at the glass stream and reads information for stream diameter and stream velocity. The information is then sent to the central unit and based on set parameters, calculates the glass flow. The glass flow meter continuously measures glass flow individually for each fiberizing unit. This glass flow meter is a non-contact, optical measurement system that calculates the flow of molten glass that falls from the bushing into the fiberizer.

Some of the benefits of Gedevelop’s System:

Increased Spinner Life

Increased Productivity

Less Rejects Due to Poor Fiber Quality

Increased Furnace Life

Gedevelop GFM System is very specialized and not easy to repair. Having advanced and specialized testing equipment is really the only way to insure that repairs are accurate. This is because simulating the actual workings of the machines is the only way to test the repairs completely. Believe it or not, there are very few, if any, companies qualified to fully repair this system. In speaking to Daniel Murphy, Branch Manager for Radwell International in St Charles, Missouri, his facility has a detailed testing system designed to assist with Gedevelop repairs and is qualified to repair every aspect of the system. In addition, a two year warranty is offered on all Gedevelop repairs. Radwell’s Missouri location services Gedevelop repairs worldwide.
