Cristalerias Toro SpA is a Chilean family business with more than 60 years of experience in the manufacture and marketing of glass containers. The company supplies container glass to different areas of the food industry like wines, spirits, liqueurs, beer, soft drinks, water, juices, oils and other products.
Due to steady growth, the company plans to build a completely new production line outside Santiago de Chile in Lonquen. Lonquén is a city in Chile, within the metropolitan area of Santiago. HORN will be supplying the future glass melting furnace, which will produce 300 tons of glass per day on three forehearths.
HORN’s scope of supply includes the planning and delivery of the refractory materials as well as the complete equipment for heating, measuring and control, boosting, the batch charger for the furnace, distributor and forehearth. It is also noteworthy that the forehearth is delivered with an automatic cooling flap control, which makes it possible to set the temperature profile in the forehearth automatically after a setpoint specification of the drop temperature.
The entire construction and commissioning will be supervised and managed by HORN Glass Industries AG.
