SORG 340S+® Forehearth

The SORG® 340S+ is the further development of our successful 340S® forehearth. The largest modification from the old to the new model regards the cooling air supply. All forehearth and working end zones as well as possible bottom cooling will be served by only one fan - and not by two or even more fans. This reduces investment, operating, and mainentance costs.

SORG® Burner Holders WSH / WSM

The newly developed SORG® burner holder is characterized by the fulcrum of the burner being located in the burner nozzle in the front. There are two different types: the WSH holder and the WSM holder. The WSH provides manual adjustment of the horizontal and vertical burner angles. The WSM offers the manual adjustment of the horizontal angle and the motorized adjustment of the vertical burner angle. To adjust the burner angle no tools are necessary.

EME-NEND® Batch Charger

The batch chargers of the EME-NEND® series enable complete sealing of the doghouse with all the attendant advantages: no energy losses, no dusting around the furnace and no carry-over within the furnace. Further batch charger types are: pusher, screw, chute, float glass and enfolding chargers.

News & Innovations

Heinz Glas Dzialdowo starts operation of new SORG end-fired furnace

The company Heinz Glas Dzialdowo manufactures high-quality cosmetic bottles. Through extensive investments in all areas, the plant was repositioned to meet future requirements. The old recuperative melting plant with a melting capacity of 70 tpd – energetically, environmentally and in terms of efficiency no longer meeting the necessary standard – was replaced by a state-of-the-art SORG® regenerative end-fired furnace with a melting capacity of 150 tpd.

The furnace with STW working end is connected to six STF production lines, two of which equipped as SORG® coloring forehearths. Regarding safety technology, the highest level according to DIN/EN 746-2 was implemented with redundant SORG® gas supply and safety control for melting end and forehearths. The new SORG® burner holders WSH, modular stirrers as well as the SORG CONTI-DRAIN® are also used. With the start of production, the glass quality met the high demands of Heinz Glas and the total energy consumption is lower than specified.
