Wiegand Glas Steinbach is now using all three components of the SORG BATCH3 system
This past summer Wiegand Glas Steinbach put a second batch preheater into operation. With this addition, all three components of the SORG BATCH3 system are being utilized on furnace 5:
•    the EME-NEND® charger to reduce dust outside of the furnace;
•    the IRD® Doghouse to minimize dust in the furnace and regenerators;
•    and now a SORG batch preheating system to reduce energy and increase throughput.
One week was scheduled to commission the batch preheater. After 12 hours Wiegand achieved a batch preheat temperature of 260°C, and after only 24 hours, commissioning was completed with a constant batch preheat temperature of 270°C without any upset to production.
In addition to 14% energy savings, the furnace is now producing at 270 tons per day compared to 250 tons per day before starting the preheating unit.
