Horn is to build 560t/day end fired furnace for Turkish glass container manufacturer Bastürk Cam.
The furnace will have a melting surface of 185.4 m² in the Malatya, Turkey facility and designed for six forehearths for the production of container glass.
The scope of supply also includes two new Horn batch chargers HVR 600F batch chargers.
The two batch chargers were recently subjected to a test with regard to conveyor capacity.
Each batch charger must have a conveyor capacity of 700 tonnes per day, so that each machine itself can handle the entire capacity of the furnace.
With the test on an original batch consisting of 25% cullet and 75% raw materials, Horn was able to prove the performance under real conditions without any problems and thus meet the high requirements for the batch chargers.
