The Orton Model GMF-1700 glass melting furnace is a large sample batch melter designed for formula development and product improvement. The maximum continuous service temperature of the hot zone is 1700C and the maximum crucible size can accommodate approximately 2000 grams of molten glass.
The glass melting tank is where the process starts with sand, limestone, soda ash, and cullet fed into a furnace for melting. Furnaces can use fossil fuels or electricity for the heating process which represents about 80% of the total energy usage.
gas burners for regenerative furnaces The BDF gas burners have been designed for underport installation in End-Fired and Cross-Fired furnaces. In order to achieve a better flame shape and length on each burner the gas is split in two streams into the burner and flows into the tank through two concentric nozzles.
of up to 50% can be achieved by utilising BOC's patented Convective Glass Melting [CGM] crown mounted oxy-fuel burners. The CGM system offers glassmakers the opportunity to boost and also convert, on the fly, an air-fuel melter into a hybrid air-oxy-fuel melter, introducing up to 50% of the energy by oxy-fuel and the remainder by conventional
amongst the different products of the glass industry. Furnaces for the production of glass are usually constructed to continuously melt large volumes of glass. The uninterrupted operation period can last up to twelve years. The output of furnaces has a wide range from 20 t of glass per day to more than 600 t per day.

glass melting crucibles SELEE® Advanced Ceramics® has been providing the art glass industry with high quality glass melting crucibles for over 20 years. SELEE® Advanced Ceramics® glass melting crucibles have proven strength, durability and wear resistance to provide maximum furnace up time.
2. apparatus for making glass comprising a plurality of melting tanks each having a liquid glass discharge spout extending therefrom, means to supply glass making material to each of said tanks, burner means extending through the floor of each of said tanks for supplying heat thereto to melt glass therein, a glass refining tank having sides and having a capacity substantially equal to the
All-electric furnace systems and mixed-fuel Systems; operating cold top or semi-hot top offer an advanced technological solution to melting many different types of glass. Offering energy efficiency, high-quality product and ease of operation, electric furnace systems require capital investment comparable or less then fuel fired alternative
Across the challenge, the baton was taken up by Corning Glass Works, now Corning Incorporated, who developed a revolutionary continuous furnace in which the refractory material was largely platinum. The use of this furnace resulted in the production of glass of perfect quality for precision optics and spectacle lenses.
definition of "Grand Challenge" opportunities in the context of advanced melting technologies. It accomplishes its purpose by examining current and emerging melting technologies and discussing their technical barriers to scale-up issues and research needed to advance these technologies.
