The furnace is very easy to operate and with the flexibility achieved provides a very attractive option for low volume glass producers who want continuous operation or as in this case production during only 8 hours. The small overnight pull rate ensures excellent glass quality and the furnace can melt up to 80% cullet.
With high cullet ratio the melting temperature is reduced increasing furnace life and reducing energy consumption.
The computer control system with easy to use SCADA interface makes the furnace easy to operate locally or remotely via the internet. Alarming to mobile phones increases hands off attraction of this furnace installation.
