Forglass has designed, fabricated and installed a 120/150 TPD regenerative end-fired furnace with electric boosting to melt ultra-white flint tableware glass for Trend Group, a major Polish producer of tableware glass. Following successful startup, many performance parameters exceeded the values guaranteed in the contract. Chiefly, the glass quality index is below 10 bubbles with the specific energy consumption below 1020 kcal/kg.
Forglass furnace design takes into account the specific characteristics of oxidized, ultra-white flint tableware glass with low iron content – mainly high values of effective thermal conductivity coefficient and higher saturation of SO 3 in the molten glass.
Trend Group expressed their thorough satisfaction with the furnace by placing subsequent orders – modernization of three additional furnaces for their other plants.
Considering that Forglass engineers have 30 years of experience in glass furnace construction, combined with the newest design and construction technologies, it really should come as no surprise that Forglass’ clients are so happy!
