Horn Glass Industries has supplied a 350tpd end fired furnace to Ardagh Glass in Gostyn, Poland.
Ardagh Gostyn operates three regenerative cross fired-furnaces and contracted Horn to carry out the complete project, beginning from the planning and engineering until forehearth refractory superstructure.
Furnace number three was rebuilt in the first quarter of this year as a new regenerative end-fired furnace with four lines.
The building was enlarged (height and length) before starting furnace works due to limitations in the building.
The working end, together with forehearths 3.1, 3.2, 3.3 and 3.4, was designed completely new. The new furnace is specified for 350 tpd flint glass and the melting area is 123.5 m².
