Batch House, Furnace and Forehearths – all in one package
For those, who see the value of having one trusted supplier providing a full range of services, here is a great example. The fast-growing company from Poland, Forglass Sp. z o.o. has just completed a complex expansion and modernization of batch house, furnace and forehearths for their Client.
The scope of the project included not only technological solutions, but also civil works in order to significantly increase melting capacity. Forglass delivered an additional mixer and two bucket conveyors, providing the redundancy of batch delivery with two independent lines.
Forglass also did a complete rebuild of the furnace together with forehearths and relocated two IS forming machines together with their support structure and utilities.
What was crucial to the Client was that all the work on the batch house was performed without stopping production. To accomplish this, Forglass installed a temporary pneumatic batch transport to the tank silo for the duration of construction. The result was not only the expanded and modernized glassworks factory, but also a very happy client.
