Zippe has developed a new batch house with batch transport and cullet return system for Guardian Glass' Czestochowa plant in Poland.

In addition, nine high performing float glass batch chargers, one batch charger as a substitute in case of need – were also supplied via a separate order.

This is the second float furnace on this site and the new installation has more than doubled the production capacity of the plant.

Zippe's work included the design, manufacturing and installation of the steel structure, the process equipment and the control system.

Limited space on site and as well as Covid-19 measures affected the installation work on site, but Zippe was able to fulfil Guardian’s expectations on schedule.
