Vidroporto, a long-established container glass factory in Porto Ferreira, São Paulo, Brazil has started production with its furnace no. 3.
The new line 3 comprises a new fully automatic batch house including batch transport as well as cullet return system, all of which was supplied by Zippe Industrieanlagen.
Besides the equipment and the control system, the steel construction and the silos were also part of Zippe’s scope of supply.
The batch house is designed for the production of 400 tons of batch in 16 hours.
With this new plant, primarily amber beer bottles are to be produced for the Brazilian market.
The plant was commissioned in mid-October and has already produced bottles with very high efficiency.
