General Description

The furnace melting needed a very accuracy combustion system to achieve the best performance for a modern glass melting furnace.

Glass Service developed many type of furnace melting combustion system with different technology and energy sources.
For a better understanding the following grid show the technology and the energy source combination.

The Glass Service melting combustion system nowadays have the following performance:

  • low energy consumption

  • Low pollution and NOx forming

  • high reliable

  • low maintenance

The melting combustion system is composed by several sections for gas energy source:

  • gas pressure governors and safety

  • gas dosing and flow control

  • air/oxy dosing and flow control

  • reversal unit

For the liquid energy source:

  • heavy oil pumping and heating

  • heavy oil dosing and flow control

  • air/oxy dosing and flow control

  • reversal unit

  • compress air spray

The flow control could be manage for a group of burners or for each single burner for a better combustible/oxidising ratio control.

The combustion systems are design according the standard regulation for safety use. The standard can change in function of the market, EN746/2 for European, UL/NFPA for USA, GOST for Russian market.
It can be also design for Classified area as ATEX or NFPA for USA market and can be also design according the required SIL2 safety operation for the European market.
For all this market Glass Service can provide the required certifications.

All the system are design for continuous use 24/7, for this scope only high reliability and strong components are installed. In any critical component or the redundancy for safety equipment or the manual by-pas is also install.
The Glass Service melting area combustion plant can guarantee the fuel feeding in any condition also catastrophic.
