In the middle of November, the two furnace pre-silos from ZIPPE for the new furnace 2 at Wiegand-Glas in Schleusingen were integrated and installed. As the furnace building had already been closed, the two silos from ZIPPE were inserted via the cold end hall and erected directly afterwards.
While setting up the silos, maximum concentration and precision work was indispensable. The installation of the silos could be realized in only one day - thanks to the experienced ZIPPE supervisor Karl Möller, the ZIPPE crew and great Wiegand staff on site.
The new furnace, which is fed with batch from these two silos, is supposed to start with production next year.
