The HVR® batch charger is used for furnaces with lateral or front end doghouses. HORN®’s batch charger type HVR® is the most classic and popular batch charger of HORN® Glass Industries AG on the market. There are three different types of it. The most common type HVR® F is available with five different chute widths, which all have individual charging performance, according to your requirements. Invented and constructed since the founding of HORN® Glass Industries AG, the HVR® is still the most popular and reliable batch charger for your glass plant.
The heat shield, in combination with a refractory lined doghouse hood, seals the doghouse whereby secondary air supply is minimised. The heat shield also protects the batch charger from too much heat radiation.
The batch is evenly spread on the vibrating chute with the help of the charging hopper. The end piece of the vibrating chute is made of heat resistant steel and is exchangeable in order to avoid downtime if repair work is required.
The movement of the water-cooled paddle is carried out by a lever system connected to a frequency controlled gear motor or servo drive. The paddle pushes the batch evenly from the vibrating chutes into the glass melting end and creates batch piles.
The batch charger is fixed to a moveable carriage with a rotary frame. The frame turns on a ball bearing which is fixed between the frame and the carriage. The slewing motion of the rotating frame is caused by a controllable pneumatic cylinder.
The swing gear from the batch chargers HVR® 300F to the HVR® 600F always slews from the middle position to the right and to the left, regardless on which side of the furnace the batch charger is set up.
The paddle pushes the batch evenly from the vibrating chute into the doghouse and creates batch piles. The speed of the pusher is inverter controlled. The stroke length and the submersion depth of the pushers can be adjusted manually.
