• TS1470 | Tin Side Detector - Higher Intensity Glow

Higher Intensity Glow Tin Side Detector

The NEW Tin Side Detection Lamp is the perfect solution for brighter lit

environments where it can be difficult to see the glowing tin side of the glass.  This LINE-POWERED product has an ideal intensity for easy measurements, whether you are in a darker lit production environment or a well-lit lab.  The design also includes a great ERGONOMIC handle that makes the product comfortable to operate and easy to handle.  The TS1470 is ideal for testing single pieces of glass, as well as stacks of glass that have a small portion of the glass face exposed.   The glowing light from the tin side can be easily viewed on the glass surface, as well as on the edge of the glass.  The TS1470 comes standard in a 115V version, but can be custom ordered in 230V as well.


About Tin Side:

During the production of float glass, one side of the molten glass comes into contact with a bath of molten tin. Traces of tin or tin dioxide metal are deposited on the surface of glass as it is removed from the molten tin bath. This surface of the glass is identified as the "TIN SIDE" surface of the glass. The opposite side of the glass is denoted as the "AIR SIDE".


The presence of the tin is invisible to the human eye. Glass processors find it beneficial to know which surface of the glass is the tin side surface, since the tin side of the glass results in a smoother surface (among other reasons).


When the Tin Side Detector lamp is placed on the tin side surface, the tin will turn fluorescence and produce a milky white image that is visible to the human eye. If you place the lamp on the non-tin side of the glass, the lack of tin results in no fluorescence and therefore only the duller image of the lamp is seen.
