German engineering group Horn is to carry out a furnace repair in Mexico.

It will repair a 260 tonnes per day recuperative furnace, named furnace A, at container glassmaker Crown Silices de Veracruz (Sivesa) in its Orizaba plant.

Horn has previously supplied a 360 tpd recuperative furnace B for Sivesa in Orizaba and a 450 tpd end fired furnace D for Crown Vichisa in Chihuahua, Mexico.

A feature article on Sivesa appeared on page 18 of the October 2018 issue of Glass International.
