Members of the SGT’s Melting Technology Committee visited the Saint-Gobain Glass, Eggborough, UK site.

The visit included a tour of the modern float glass facility and the MTC’s October meeting. The committee is appreciative of Saint-Gobain’s hospitality.

The committee also welcomed Bill Brookes to his first MTC meeting as the Society’s President.

The committee is welcoming speakers for next year’s Furnace Solutions and Training Day. The theme for Training Day 6 is ‘Furnace Operation and Instrumentation’ including all processes – Forehearth distributors and burners.

The theme for Furnace Solutions 13 is Furnace Optimisation.

Those wanting to speak at the conference or run a training session are asked to send a brief abstract to Christine Brown at the SGT by the end of 2017.

Next year’s SGT Training Day and Furnace Solutions Conference will be held on the 6th and 7th June at Lucideon in Stoke-on-Trent, UK.
