Analyses and Determination of Current Density and Energy Density in Electric Melting Glass Furnace
Current density and energy density is one of the most important parameters for designing the electric melting glass furnace. This paper analyzed the relation between current density and energy density based upon the generated representation, mathematical simulation and empirical equation, defined the bearing scope of current density for several kinds of electrodes, discussed the tendency of the change of current density and volume melting rate on different kinds of glasses, provided the theoretical basis to design electric melting glass furnace and established proper thermotechnical regime, so as to ensure the optimum operating condition in electric melting glass furnace.
