Zippe batch plant with extensive silo system for Schott India

The new batch plant for the production of glass tubing will be installed in Jambusar at the same location as the plant that Zippe delivered in 2000.

The batch plant will supply several furnaces on site.

A special feature of this new plant is the large silo system, consisting of raw material and cullet silos. In the technically highly complex dosing and weighing system, the raw materials are weighed precisely by several scales according to each formula.

A high-performance mixing plant ensures optimal batch distribution.

The scope of supply also includes the equipment for the batch transport systems from the batch house to the furnaces with the proven Zippe conveyor technology.

Furthermore, the Zippe scope of delivery includes the basic engineering, project management, detailed engineering of the building installation, delivery of the process equipment as well as supervision, commissioning support and detailed training of the operating personnel.

Schott provides the silo plant, the buildings as well as installation works locally.

Commissioning is scheduled for 2023.
