HORN batch charger HVR 600F performs in test of conveyor capacity

HORN was able to prove the expected performance of the batch charger under real conditions

HORN Glass is going to build for its customer Bastürk Cam a 560 t/d end fired furnace with a melting surface of 185.4 square metres in their plant in Malatya, Turkey. The new furnace is designed with six forehearths for the production of container glass.

HORN’s scope of supply for this project includes two new HORN batch chargers HVR® 600F. The HVR® is still the most popular and reliable batch charger for glass plants and, as a true classic, the most successful batch charging machine of HORN Glass Industries AG on the market.

The two HORN batch chargers HVR® 600F were recently subjected to a test with regard to conveyor capacity. Each batch charger must have a conveyor capacity of 700 tonnes per day, so that each machine itself can handle the entire capacity of the furnace. With the test on an original batch consisting of 25 percent cullet and 75 percent raw materials, HORN was able to prove this performance under real conditions without any problems and thus meet the high requirements for the batch chargers.
