•high furnace capacity up to 750 t/d
•easy adjustable temperature profile along the furnace
•low energy consumption
•low emmission values
•high flexibility during production changes
•high specific melting area load
Similar to the end fired furnace, the regenerative cross fired furnace provides low energy consumption and high flexibility in terms of pull change. However, this type of furnace can be built with bigger melting areas due to the shorter flame length compared to the end fired furnace. Therefore the cross fired furnace is normally used for furnaces with high capacity or where the existing building does not allow for an end fired furnace.
The furnace can be used for container glass, table ware, cosmetic glass, pharmaceutical glass, sheet glass, solar glass, sodium-silicate glass, tubing and lighting glass.
According to the glass quality, furnace capacity, raw material specifications and the type of glass, each furnace is perfectly designed and tailor-made according to the requirements of the glass industry.
The regenerators, burner ports and burners are situated laterally. For each burner port a sectional regenerator chamber can be designed together with a damper at the waste gas channel. This enables the precise control of the tank temperature along the melting process inside the tank.
