For the good production result the study of the available raw materials is one of the successful key point.
Glass Service assistance engineers can help the customer on the raw materials choice and supplier selection.
In the raw materials many parameters are evaluated:
impurity and metal pollution
storage available on the customer plant
local availability and transport
The correct raw materials study can help the customer in the melting process. It can:
reduce the production cost
reduce the dust powder furnace emission
increase the furnace life
reduce the energy consumption
A special attention is dedicating also to the cullet source. The quality and constant availability of the cullet is one of the main key for the final good production.
The cullet analysis and evaluation are integrated in the full service from Glass Service assistance engineer.
The use of correct refining agent and decolouring agent is one of the key for correct production.
Glass Service engineer could evaluate the correct mix of agent for the production quality required.
For the correct mix definition several laboratory test could be done as well as on- field furnace test and settings.
