French packaging glass manufacturer Pochet du Courval has put its furnace 5 into operation after a complete rebuild using equipment from Horn Glass.

During the cold repair of furnace 5, Pochet du Courval installed new Horn combustion equipment which includes new Horn Dualflame AC burners, gas reversing, measuring and control skid as well as gas measuring and safety skid.

This rebuild enabled Pochet du Courval to reduce its nitrogen oxide emissions by 25%.

Energy consumption and CO2 emissions have also been reduced by 20%.

During the cold repair, the control lines were modernised in order to optimise the product quality.

Pochet du Courval continued to rebuild this furnace despite the difficulties associated with COVID-19, in particular thanks to the mobilisation of internal teams.
