Engineering Furnace group Fives has secured an order for electrical boosters in Mexico.

The boosting will help the customer – which produces soda lime glass - to increase the pull of the furnace as well as their glass quality.

It will give them better control and boost the thermal currents of the molten glass within the melter, raise up the bottom glass to the surface at the barrier and allow it to circulate back to the back of the furnace.

The boosters will also help improve batch retention, residence time, refining, quality and increase output.

Fives is a boosting specialist with more than 140,000kW installed around the globe.

It is a new customer for Fives, which is now actively re-entering the Mexican glass manufacturing market with its range of electric furnace-related equipment.
