Furnace project for Chile glass container plant

Chilean family glass packaging business Cristalerias Toro SpA plans to build a production line outside Santiago de Chile in Lonquen. The operation will feature a HORN glass melting furnace, which will produce 300 tons/day via three forehearths.

The HORN Glass Industries scope of supply includes planning and delivery of the refractory materials, as well as complete equipment for heating, measurement and control, boosting the batch charger for the furnace, distributor and forehearth. The forehearths come with automatic cooling flap control, which makes it possible to set the temperature profile automatically after a setpoint specification of the drop temperature.
