Sparklike: breakthrough technology measurement of gas fill for insulating glass

2015-12-20 | Ig equipment

Sparklike is the developer of the world’s first non-invasive gas analyzer for insulating glass. The company’s Gasglass product line has become the de facto world standard for gas fill measurement of IGUs. The products are sold worldwide and are in daily use by leading global insulated glass manufacturers, testing laboratories and window processors. To meet tightening industry standards and keep pace with the fast developments of state-of-the-art glass manufacturing, Sparklike has developed a new laser based technology for high-performance gas fill measuring. Alongside the new technology, this article discusses the advantages of gas fill for thermal performance and the latest developments in gas fill measurement.

Sparklike: breakthrough technology measurement of gas fill for insulating glass
High performance glazing
Certified energy-efficiency
Today’s architectural design favours the use of glass both as a day-lighting and as a structural element in modern construction. Different types of windows increase the attractiveness of commercial and residential buildings, improve day-lighting and add to the comfort of life and work in offices and homes. At the same time, glass windows are one of the most sensitive building components when it comes to assuring energy-efficiency in construction. Energy flow in and out of buildings, depending on their location and prevailing weather conditions, has been a traditional focus of attention for building owners and their suppliers particularly in view of increasing energy costs.
The window industry has responded to energy-efficiency requirements by developing different types of insulated glass structures. Multiple-layer glazing, double- or triple-pane solutions and insulated glass units (IGUs) utilize advanced insulation materials ranging from glass types, frames, sealants and cavity fills to maximize the thermal performance and minimize the U-factor - energy penetration through the glass. Double- and triple-glazing, gas fill and specific coatings have contributed immensely to the energy-efficiency of windows and have become the best solution and state-of-the-art choice for high performance IGUs.
