Thai glass container manufacturer Siam Glass intends to build a second production line in its Ayutthaya plant to make bottles for energy drinks.

German furnace engineering company SORG offered a top modern glass melting furnace with four forehearths and won the contract for the supply of the furnace and glass conditioning system.

It concerns an energetically highly efficient regenerative end-fired furnace with a melting capacity of 310 tpd amber glass which is heated with gas and equipped with an electric melting booster as well as its proven Sorg Deep Refiner.

The glass will be supplied to the four production lines via a Sorg STW working end and four forehearths. Considering the forehearth pulls and production requirements two forehearths type Sorg 340S and two forehearths type Sorg 240 are planned.

The complete equipment, control system and refractory package will also be supplied.

Siam Glass is a subsidiary of the Osotspa group which makes the M150 energy drink in Thailand.
