We always want to ‘get it right’ and remain true to our maxims of accuracy, reliability and innovation. These also apply to the service equipment we use. In order to warrant smooth installation work on site, we always use state-of-the-art equipment, which we adapt to every project situation and always maintain in perfect, fully functional condition.
We use three different types of blowers
• maximum 5,000 m3/h at peak pressure of 60 mbar
• maximum 4,000 m3/h at peak pressure of 60 mbar
• maximum 2,100 m3/h at peak pressure of 24 mbar
Our burner hose pipes are constructed to offer the greatest possible safety, and the cones we use for glass-melting furnaces are of a nickel-free material so that the furnaces as well as the glass it contains will not be ‘contaminated’ with nickel.
We use three different types of heat-up burners
• maximum consumption 250 Nm3/h – natural gas
• maximum consumption 125 Nm3/h – natural gas
• maximum consumption 190 l/h – domestic fuel
- maximum consumption 100 kg/h liquid gas per evaporator
- Sieves of various types and sizes
Glass tapping and draining
- Water pumps, drilling gear, drain channel, cooling units, water recycling system, scrapers
Control and measuring equipment
The control and safety systems we have engineered ourselves include two magnetic valves, which close automatically in cases of flame spillage, power failure or during flame detector checks and thus prevent unburnt gas or fuel entering the glass furnace.
Temperatures are controlled using NiCrNi thermocouples, connected to the measuring system by means of equalizing pipes. The system contains a special software to visualize and record furnace temperatures. These are also documented every hour in handwritten form to facilitate quick checks at any time during heating or drying processes.
The thermal expansion of glass furnaces is monitored in a similar way, using potentiometers. These transfer the required signals via a converter to the digital measuring system, which visualizes them on screen. The recorded values are also documented in handwritten form.
