The HORN® glass conditioning systems allow specific conditioning of the molten glass for each particular forming process while ensuring the highest possible temperature homogeneity (K-factor) of the gob. Glass conditioning always and without exception starts in the distributor and is continued and completed in the forehearth. Therefore the HORN® distributors and forehearths are interconnected systems and are engineered as single units for the conditioning process.
This forehearth system is characterised by the most advanced technology in forehearth design for high-pull forehearths and the highest temperature homogeneity requirements (K-factor).
A colouring forehearth is a favourable method for the production of coloured glass without having to change the colour in the entire furnace. The advantages are having two colours simultaneously and the possibility of a temporary colouring process.
