The melting furnace heated with oxygen and gas is preferably used for the production of demanding types with high melting temperatures (e.g. borosilicate glasses, TFT glasses).
By arranging the burners transversely to the furnace axis, a temperature profile can be set for best melting and refining of the molten glass.
A barrier is installed in the bassin to facilitate the local separation of the melting process from the refining process.
Depending on the application, additional electrical heating of the melt is provided to support the melting and refining process.
The combination of technological components ensures high energy efficiency and the highest quality standards for the glass melt.
