Taiwan Tobacco & Liquor Corporation has started construction of a glass manufacturing furnace.

The existing furnace will be demolished and replaced with a 150 t/d furnace. The 57 m² end-fired furnace with two forehearths is designed with advanced technology to produce flint, green and amber glass.

Horn said its design guarantees an optimum of glass pull rate in respect of energy consumption, glass quality and stable conditions.

The supply includes the Combustion System, engineering of furnace refractories and steel structure, supervision and heat-up.
