Happy clients turn to Forglass with demanding and unusual projects

What do you do when you need to raise the Working End, Waist and Canal monorails without disassembling the refractories? Call Forglass, of course

Forglass, known primarily as a glass melting technology supplier, also offers its expertise in a number of demanding and unusual projects.

Having completed a similar project for the same Client recently, Forglass was once again chosen to raise the Working End, Waist and Canal monorails of the furnace in a Client’s UK plant. This time, the total weight of the construction has to be raised is well over 1000 tons.

The project will include:

  • Preparing complete technical documentation for the scope of the project
  • Fabrication and installation of support structure
  • Selection and installation of a synchronous hydraulic system
  • Modification and reinforcement of existing structure
  • Synchronised raising of the Working End

Forglass will develop technical documentation, a model of the existing structures, drawings of supporting structures, calculations and necessary descriptions. The synchronous hydraulic system used by Forglass guarantees a smooth and safe lifting of the entire structure. The pre-determined height of the raised structure will be confirmed at each of the control points.

Forglass owns their fabrication facilities, which allows for great flexibility and agility in responding to clients’ needs – no matter how unusual or demanding.
