Batch Preheating - sustainability that pays off

Energy savings by using furnace waste gases

Rising energy costs mean production processes in glass production must be made as efficient as possible.

One way to save costs is to use the waste gases from the melting process to preheat cullet and glass batch. This enables a reduction in the energy requirement of between 10 and 15%.

At the same time, CO2 emissions can be reduced considerably and the capacity of the melter increased. A batch preheater can be planned in later as an integrated element of batch processing, but also as a retrofit. As a pioneer of this technology, ZIPPE has been continually developing it and is able to offer state-of-the-art systems.
