An energy efficient forehearth and distributor combustion system is essential for consistent quality production in the glass industry.
Good control is essential, particularly in the case of special or coloured glasses (e.g. green, amber) where a stable redox condition in the forehearth superstructure is essential for good quality production.
The forehearth and distributor combustion system developed by Glass Service is the result of 22 years of experience supplying to the glass industry.
The system used is the premix gas/air type and can be used with natural gas or LPG.
The combustion system satisfies the demands of todays glass industry:
Correct combustion ratio in the full range of flow (3 - 50 mbar manifold pressure)
Linear flow valve control characteristic
Stable ratio condition during burner pressure fluctuations
Stable ratio conditions after a burner nozzle change or cleaning
Easy and precise manual setting of the gas/air ratio for each zone
Wide range of flows and sizes (from DN25 to DN100)
