Polish glass engineering company Forglass recently completed three major hot repairs of float furnaces for Saint-Gobain in Germany, UK and Romania.
Forglass deployed a full team of employees on site for the jobs, including managers, supervisors and safety inspectors.
The main task facing the Forglass team was a hot overcoating of the furnace Melting Tank, including Dog house, Tank sides, Exit wall and Waist.
The preheated tiles were placed and the steel structure was adapted accordingly. Some minor repairs were also performed at the Melting End superstructure.
Following the completion at each of the three locations, Forglass received a letter from Saint-Gobain emphasising the fact that all work was performed in a safe manner, as a result of which there were no accidents nor injuries.
