FURNACE DESIGN

DEVELOPING PROFESSIONAL GLASS FURNACE PROJECTS

The furnace is the heart of a glassworks. And the most important part of the furnace is the melted glass. Without a good furnace, there is no good glass. Forglass designs, constructs and commissions furnaces producing all glass compositions.

At each stage, Forglass applies experiences, both of its own and that of its users, which has allowed us to use as the basis for perfecting years-old and well-known structures, as well as new ideas and solutions. A furnace is expensive and it needs to be operational over a long period of time. Forglass believe that new solutions are based on detailed calculations and mathematical modelling and are continually striving to achieve this.

It is also worth listening to the comments of technologists, suppliers of refractory materials, firing systems, electrode heat boost systems, and many other suppliers of large and small furnace elements, as they are all crucial to the final product – good quality glass.

Thanks to projects and 3D models prepared by Forglass, they all have a virtual insight into the path which the melted glass will traverse for the next 8, 10 or 12 years. As furnace designers, we aim to excel in cooperation with those who are champions in their own fields, and skilfully combine their suggestions with our own knowledge, experience and commitment to drafting optimal projects that comply with the demands and expectations of our clients.
