The batch plant is designed to feed two melting furnaces. The raw materials are weighed by means of seven container scales. When it comes to the mixing technology, three high- capacity mixers are used. Cullet is added after the mixing process by nine dosing belt scales.
Furthermore, two cullet return systems were part of Zippe’s scope of supply. Both are equipped with the highly robust and proven Zippe scraping and crushing technology.
Zippe carried out the project on a turnkey basis. The scope of supply comprised the steelwork, silos, equipment and electrical control system.
This Zippe control system is based on a redundant architecture based on Siemens PCS7 including a high available network. It is also part of the plant-wide automation control concept.
Moreover, Zippe was responsible for the services on site such as installation, piping, cabling, commissioning and training of customer personnel.
The plant has recently been put into operation successfully.
