Thanks to an active policy of innovation, Pochet du Courval continually renews creation prospects for its clients by continually pushing the limits of technology.
Horn Glass Industries has recently repaired Pochet du Courval’s furnace No 4. It is a regenerative end-fired furnace with 34m² melting surface to produce super-flint perfume and cosmetic bottles.
The furnace itself is heated by natural gas and electricity.
Under the condition of a low energy-consuming furnace with low emissions, Horn secured the order for the furnace repair. With the new design and the new firing system using the Dualflame AC burners, the furnace emits less than 700 mg NOx per cubic meter of waste gases.
Horn also supplied the natural gas control skids, batch charger, glass level controller, furnace TV-camera and waste gas channel equipment as well as the complete design drawings for refractory material and steel construction of the melting tank.
