Japanese glassmaker Nippon Electric Glass Co. Ltd. (NEG) has entrusted Fives Stein Belgium SA with the design and manufacturing of a complete BGE Dross Box dedicated to the production of special glass and designed to stand very high temperatures. The BGE Dross Box has been designed for maintaining good sealing throughout thermal expansion, reducing counter flow of outer atmosphere, and for adjusting the glass curve at the exit of the bath. The hood is a complex assembly of steelwork and lining materials. Its set of curtains is equipped with a quick lifting device. The BGE Dross Box also features many other improvements, such as the possibility to remove side carbon seals without stopping the roller, which are the result of Fives Stein Belgium SA 25 years of experience in high performance tin bath equipment.
