Glass recipe calculation

> Definition of nominal values for chemical components
> Multiple carrier raw materials per component with definition of the mixing ratio
> Definition of evaporation factors and saturation limits for chemical components
> Fixed and variable ingredients (e.g. for cullet and refining or reducing agents)
> Automatic calculation of the raw material weights based on an amount of glass, mixer
capacity or main ingredient

Batch recipe calculation

> Manual entry and adjustment of raw material weights
> Calculation of the theoretical glass composition (synthesis)
> Calculation of the batch redox number
> Calculation of batch costs and glass price
> Recalculation based on updated analyses (correction test)
> Configurable report and export function

Batch recipe comparison

> Direct comparison of all data from an arbitrary number of batch recipes
> Configurable report function
> Data export to clipboard

Glass property prediction

> Calculation of the viscosity curve and viscosity fixed points as well as derived parameters
(working range index, processing range, devitrification index, relative machine speed)
> Calculation of thermal expansion, thermoshock resistance, density, refractive index, disper-
sion, Abbe number, chemical resistance, Young’s, shear and bulk modulus, Poisson’s ratio,
molar and specific heat, surface tension, liquidus temperature
> Calculation of the electrical conductivity of the glass melt
> Calculation and output of validity limits and error intervals
> Convenient glass property calculator for direct comparison of multiple glass types

Raw material usage calculator
