Forglass designs and builds new Cullet Treatment system for Saint-Gobain

Forglass, in addition to revolutionary improvements in melting technologies that the company has introduced to the industry, is also developing its batch plant solutions to meet the evolving needs of glass producers.

Cullet systems that include sorting and purifying are becoming more and more critical, so the demand for such systems is growing.

One global glass producer, particularly well-known for its commitment to sustainability, decarbonisation and constant innovation of its glass production processes is Saint-Gobain in Eggborough, UK. The company recently turned to Forglass with the request to design, fabricate and install a treatment system for a particularly challenging type of float glass cullet.

The design of the Forglass Cullet Treatment System allows it to be built as an integral part of a glassworks’ complete cullet management and transport system – as is the case for this client – or function completely independently, as a standalone system, including cullet storage and fully automatic weighing.

The Forglass Cullet Treatment System – another example of excellence that begins with design engineering, modeling and continues with testing, installation, start-up, all the way to maintenance and support.
