AMETEK Land’s Turner to Speak at SGT Conference
AMETEK Land recently announced that its physics section manager, Fiona Turner, Ph.D., will speak at the Society of Glass Technology Centenary Conference.
AMETEK Land recently announced that its physics section manager, Fiona Turner, Ph.D., will speak at the Society of Glass Technology (SGT) Centenary Conference, September 4-8, 2016, at the University of Sheffield, UK. Turner, a chartered physicist, specializes in instrumentation and metrology. Her topic is “Infrared Temperature Measurement of Thermally Tempered Low-Emissivity Glass.” She joined AMETEK Land six years ago and reportedly manages its in-house optical and radiometric development work and academic collaborations. She has played a key role in developing AMETEK Land’s SPOT thermometer range and undertaken extensive application-specific site trials.
“I am looking forward to speaking at this prestigious industry event, especially on the Society of Glass Technology’s 100 anniversary,” said Turner. “My presentation will focus on infrared temperature measurement solutions for glass tempering process control and cover the significant challenges of working with the transmissive and reflective characteristics of heat-strengthened and thermally tempered low-emissivity glass, particularly in the largely enclosed tempering installations found in industrial glass plants.”
AMETEK Land also will exhibit at FSC Furnace Solutions, another part of the SGT Centenary Conference scheduled for Thursday, September 8. Land will demonstrate and discuss its latest temperature measurement innovations, specifically those designed for the glass industry, including the recently launched thermal imaging near infrared borescope (NIR-B) for the use in glass-melt tanks.
