The works, planned for November 2020, will include partial replacement of refractories, heat-up, fill-up and hot sealing.
Forglass designed the forehearth with two rows of burners, with the upper row capable of both heating and cooling functions (by delivering pure air).
Additionally, the forehearth will feature ceramic stirrers positioned strategically along the path of glass flow.
All of the functions of this atypical forehearth are controlled automatically by customised software, also designed by Forglass.
Krosno chose Forglass for this project is due to the company’s technological expertise, the extremely positive experience of cooperation during previous rebuilding projects and the quality of workmanship that Forglass prides itself on.
