FURNACE DRAINING

GENERAL

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.

The safe glass drain is ensured by the usage of HORN®’s own highly specialised equipment. In the first step, a drilling machine with an efficient water-cooled head is used to drill a hole into the furnace.

To transport the glass granulate, HORN® provides a refractory lined drain chute and a scraper conveyor, which ends in a collecting bay. In addition, an external scraper with water-recycling system can be provided.
