Automation Systems to market its OptiGas gas-filling system for
insulating glass in windows and doors.
With conventional gas-filling systems, the largest cost factor is the
considerable amount of gas lost (from 40 to 70 per cent) during the
fill. Through a proprietary filling process, the patent-pending OptiGas
system injects the precise amount of krypton, argon or a mix of both
into the insulated glass unit at a controlled flow rate to reduce
losses. The OptiGas system can reduce krypton consumption by up to 70 per cent
per unit. Another feature of the OptiGas system is the ThermalCert
module which can analyze the gas in windows or doors, providing gas
Praxair and Integrated Automation Systems will be introducing
the OptiGas filling system in booth 1151 at the GlassBuild America Expo
in Atlanta, Ga., on Sept. 12 through 14. The booth will feature live
demonstrations of the new technology.
Integrated Automation Systems develops innovative manufacturing
systems and accessories primarily for insulating glass fabrication
companies. More information can be found at www.savekrypton.com.
Integrated Automation Systems partnered with Fenetech, a fenestration
software company, to develop the software for the OptiGas system.
