EME to build world’s largest container glass batch plant

EME is to build the world’s largest container glass batch plant for Gallo Glass, which will provide the US company with greater batching capacity and capabilities while ensuring that operational costs are reduced and plant availability is optimized.

EME Maschinenfabrik Clasen GmbH, a leading supplier of batch plants and cullet return systems for the glass industry, is undertaking a complex project in order to deliver the world’s largest container glass batch plant for production within a very tight timeframe.
The equipment will be supplied to Gallo Glass, which is continuously planning for the future with upgrades that also include furnaces from Nikolaus Sorg GmbH.
EME will deliver greater batching capacity and capabilities while ensuring that operational costs are reduced and plant availability is optimized. The first phase of the project will be commissioned in late 2014 with the final phases being operational in the second quarter of 2015.
The scope of supply includes all key components for dosing, weighing and mixing to provide a precise and reliable solution. The control system for the complete batch plant will be a true PCS7 system featuring among others, redundant failsafe control systems, parallel batching and maintenance notifications.
