The glass industry comprises a wide range of products which determine production processes. From the selection of raw materials and recycling, through the melting and moulding stages, to tempering, different processes and production methods are implemented many of which require fans.

 

Casting, cooling and tempering :  Gas-fired furnaces require a continuous supply of combustion air for the furnace’s kiln during moulding. Industrial fans are employed for the combustion process and they handle room-temperature air creating a positive pressure for the burner (kiln). After thermal heating (furnace) the glass is tempered through a quick cooling. The quantity and required air pressure depends on the thickness. Industrial fans provide a specific cold air flow uniformly blown to cool and temper.

Pneumatic conveying, charging of raw materials and vacuum systems are other processes that need fans.
