The quality of the end product in mineral wool production depends on the fiberisation process on the spinning machine. An important process variable is the fluctuation of melt volume flow from the melter. In this paper, a method for measuring melt volume flow, which is based on the measuring the diameter and flow velocity using machine vision, is presented. The velocity is measured by measuring the time of the travel of flow disturbances on two consecutive images using a correlation method. The flow disturbances are generated using a pneumatic system. The results of laboratory calibration using water as well as the results of field measurements in a mineral wool plant are presented. The field measurements were performed by comparison with the weight of the final product. The results of laboratory calibration show agreement with reference volume flow measurements with R2 = 0.96 for water. The agreement among field measured values and available comparison method is also very good.
