Lanfglass: the application of convection in continuos furnaces

2010-07-01 | Furnace technology

Developed by Landglass in 2004, forced convection furnaces with Jet Heating Technology were immediately accepted. And now, with continuous growth in the use and development of special glass for solar applications, the use of convection not only makes the tempering process faster, but also reduces or even eliminates the danger of scratches and other damage on the glass surface.

Lanfglass: the application of convection in continuos furnaces
Landglass successfully developed forced convection furnaces applying Jet Heating Technology in 2004, with immediate and considerable success. In tempering soft coated and hard-coated low-E glass, screen printed glass, extra-white glass and other glass with high quality requests, forced convection furnaces show their incomparable advantages. This, in turn, means that convection furnaces made by Landglass are not only welcomed and accepted in the company’s domestic market, but are also entering American, European and Asian markets as well.

TEMPERING GLASS FOR SOLAR AND ARCHITECTURAL APPLICATIONS
In recent years, the development of the solar power industry has been soaring due to the global search for low-carbon economy and green GDP. Thus, requirements of tempered extra-white glass for solar power modules are increasing considerably. Furthermore, accompanied with the industry’s refinery division and increasing large-scale manufacture, the production of tempered glass for architecture and household appliances has moved from mediumand small-sized companies to large-scale companies due to advantages in quality and costs. In this process, continuous furnaces play an important role.
Continuous furnaces are suitable for tempering large numbers of glass sheets with similar size used in solar power, architecture and household appliance industries. Because of the long length of heating furnaces, the glass sheets can be heated to temperable temperature during movement in a single dir...
