After the successful world premiere at glasstec and first sales in 2014, further orders for units of the new Vibrotube charger have been placed with Zippe in 2015.
The charger enjoyed a remarkably high interest from the industry and glass professionals.
Customers reported a “significant increase in efficiency, higher melting rates, lower NOx values and lower overall melting energy consumption”. The new chargers will be operated at regenerative container glass furnaces with a capacity between 130 and 320 tpd.
Among others, a new Vibrotube charger will be delivered to German flint glass flaconnage and perfume bottle manufacturer Spezialglas Piesau.
The charger will be operated at a 130 tpd regenerative furnace.
Another Vibrotube has been purchased and commissioned by Noelle + von Campe and was successfully put into operation last December.
The company already had one Vibrotube in operation and decided on a second.
