Wiegand-Glas has once again chosen EME-NEND technology for its glass manufacturing facility.

The German container glass manufacturer has already installed the batch charger technology 15 times at its Steinbach am Wald, Ernstthal, Großbreitenbach and Schleusingen facilities.

Now the Ernstthal plant has again put its trust in the performance and reliability of the charger.

Wiegand-Glas has for several years used the range of different versions of the charger (and the EME-NEND-S charger) with transport screws.

Similarly, the latest generation of the family - the EME-NEND-R with vibratory feeder - has been successfully in operation for more than a year at the Großbreitenbach facility.

EME said the advantages of the EME-NEND series include no uncontrolled entry of false air into the furnace, a reduction of NOx emissions, a reduction of energy consumption, less heat losses as well as less dust formation based on the sealed doghouse.

Due to the individual adjustment possibilities of the screws and the pusher, both the batch charging pattern and the batch distribution in the furnace are perfectly matched and optimized for the melting process.

“Maintainability and reliability characterise the whole EME-NEND family,” EME said.
