German tableware glass manufacturer Ritzenhoff has installed a furnace from Horn Glass.

The 30 tpd end-fired furnace for crystal glass was modified together with the two production lines and partly equipped with furnace equipment from Horn.

Horn Glass also supplied the heating equipment as well as measuring and safety technology at Ritzenhoff’s Marsberg site in the Sauerland region.

The order comprised the complete services from furnace drain to demolition and tempering, which was carried out by Horn’s experts and external service providers.

The new furnace was named Jana on 20 February, 2020.

Ritzenhoff has a more than 100-year history. In the 18th century, wood from the dense local forests was used in the first glassworks to fire the melting furnaces that turned quartz sand into glass.

The supplier of high-quality drinking glasses offers everything from the development and production to the decoration of glass products from a single source. Up to 50 million glasses are produced annually on the company’s four production lines
