Forglass, known for supplying glass melting and batch plant technology across Europe, is once again working in its own back yard – this time with a colourless container glass producer operating two furnaces and six production lines in Western Poland.
The company was contracted to design, fabricate and install a new batch plant technology line for external cullet management. The line will include two 200-tonne silos for flat glass cullet and one 200-tonne silo for container glass cullet, and it incorporates a unique system for redundant weighing of cullet from each silo.
Thanks to this new technology line, the glassworks will be able to increase production capacity while remaining friendly to the environment.
Forglass engineers design for the future, and this project is no exception. The building and the entire technology line are designed in such a way as to make it easy to double capacity by adding an identical line should the need arise.
