A 400t/d batch preheater was successfully commissioned by Zippe Industrieanlagen at South Africa’s Nampak Glass in April this year.
The batch preheater was installed at a new regenerative container glass furnace with a melting surface of 120m².
The preheater was installed together with a new 400tpd batch house, also supplied by Germany’s Zippe.
The whole system is integrated within PCS7 automation software, which realises the Plant-Wide-Automation (PWA) concept.
The preheater has shown double-digit energy savings and has been safely running since installation.
