A batch plant for float glass has been successfully put into operation at KBI Thailand, a subsidiary of Thai container glass manufacturer Bangkok Glass, by Zippe. The float plant, located at Kabinburi, Thailand was successfully commissioned at the beginning of September. Zippe has previously supplied different container and cullet glass plants for Bangkok Glass.
“For this reason we are especially pleased that the float glass subsidiary KBI counts on Zippe technology for batch recycling as well as cullet return,” said Zippe Industrieanlagen Project Manager, Heiko Brand.
At the beginning of September, the plant was commissioned according to schedule without complications. The plant is designed for a daily capacity of 600 tons of glass per day.

Cullet addition is effected continuously after the mixing process by three belt scales to enable an ideal batch/cullet sandwich.
On the transport way to the furnace pre-silo, there are different permanent magnets as well as metal detectors installed to avoid metal impurities in the melting furnace.

Zippe wishes KBI a successful production w...
