Spotlight On: Stone Analysis Essentials
This seminar covers the visual identification and analysis of stones in glass containers in 7 modules.
American Glass Research (AGR) is proud to offer our newest seminar, “Spotlight on: Stone Analysis Essentials”. AGR’s “Stones in Glass: Analysis and Identification” in-person seminar has trained glass industry professionals for over 10 years in this specialized skill. To introduce practical stone analysis to a broader audience, we are offering a shortened version of this seminar that will be useful for glass plant QC employees, batch & furnace workers, and some filling line QC personnel.
This new, 1.5-hour training seminar focuses on visual identification of stones using simple tools available in every QC lab – a hand lens and an optical microscope. First, the sources of stones will be reviewed, followed by a discussion of stone analysis equipment. Then, the physical characteristics observable at moderate magnifications will be surveyed. Finally, the distinctive visual traits of 19 of the most common stone types will be shown. Using the material in this course, trainees will be equipped to identify the majority of stones found in commercial glass products and to address their root causes.
