Horn ‘helps’ Ardagh Group increase production capacity

Ardagh Gostyn has increased its production capacity by rebuilding one of its furnaces.

Ardagh Gostyn has rebuilt one of its furnaces as a new regenerative end-fired furnace with four lines. The working end together with forehearths has been designed completely new. The new furnace is specified for 350 tpd flint glass. The melting area is 123.5m².
Ardagh Gostyn has operated three regenerative cross fired-furnaces in the past. They contracted well-known supplier Horn to carry out the project and enlarged the building before work began.
