Glass Service design and supply distributors and forehearths, each to the customers requirements to give the best possible performance and taking into consideration the space available for the installation.
Glass Service has developed a new concept for distributors and forehearths with direct or indirect cooling technology.
High thermal insulation combined with high performance central cooling increases the glass thermal homogeneity and reduces energy consumption.
The combination of Glass Service distributor and forehearth design including the Glass Service high performance combustion system reduces the time to change temperature settings for faster job changes.
The distributors available with widths from 400 to 1500 mm and with glass depths from 300 to 600mm depending on the glass colour, types, etc.
Profiled longitudinal glass depths are used to ensure the correct velocity and residence time.
The forehearths widths are available from 14” to 54”, glass depth from 6” to 9”, depending on the glass colour, type, etc.
The distributors and forehearts size are designed to optimize the glass velocity and residence time for the optimum energy performance and thermal homogeneity.
To ensure good thermal homogeneity, all of the combustion systems are designed to allow independent control of left side and right side firing.
Temperature measurement and control can be by either optical pyrometers or platinum thermocouples.
