Zippe Industrieanlagen has received an order from the Swiss Vetropack Group for a batch plant and two cullet return systems at the Boffalora project, Milan, Italy.

A modern glass factory is to be constructed which will replace the existing plant in Trezzano in 2023.

The batch plant is designed for the supply of two melting furnaces. The raw material weighing is realized by seven scales.

Three high duty pan mixers are used for mixing technology. The cullet addition will be realized with nine dosing belt scales.

Furthermore, two cullet return systems are also included in the supply. They are equipped with proven Zippe scraping and crushing technology.

The project will be conducted on a turnkey basis. The supply comprises the steel and silo construction, the equipment, and the control system.

Zippe is also responsible for the local services, such as installation, piping, cabling, commissioning as well as training of the customer’s personnel.

The installation work will begin in early 2022 with production slated for 2023.
