Tanzanian container glass manufacturer Kioo Glass has ordered batch equipment from Zippe Industrieanlagen.

Kioo was founded in 1963 and has been a loyal customer of Zippe Industrieanlagen for many years.

Last year, a modernisation of the batch plant including a new mixer and batch/cullet conveying system was realised during the furnace 1 repair.

The new order now comprises the modernisation of the batch and cullet transport to furnace 2 as well as another new mixer.

The scope of supply includes the reconstruction of batch transport to furnace 2, two conveying belts for the cold end, several vibratory tray feeders, a BRV crusher, an elevator, as well as diverse small components.

These will be effected during a cold repair in the second half of 2019 with a furnace capacity increase.

Kioo Glass makes glass packaging, mainly for the East and Central African markets.
