Before repairing a furnace, the glass needs to be drained from the tank. HORN® provides special equipment and experienced people to drain the glass in a safe and effective way.
If the tin bath requires a cold repair or needs to be preserved before a period of non-use, it must first be taken out of operation. An uncontrolled shutdown can lead to the loss of the whole tin bath, which is why it is not recommended.
HORN® Bau & Service GmbH provides a full-service package during furnace operation to maintain the furnace and to secure a long furnace lifespan, e.g. by thermal regenerator cleaning and flux line paving.
At the construction site the unique working conditions such as extreme temperatures, call for a team of highly qualified specialists and experts. HORN® employs a pool of very experienced people who have been working in the glass industry for many years.
With the HORN® inspection service the glass plant team can easily observe the inside of the furnace by endoscope and exactly determine necessary repair works or remaining lifespan.
