Noelle + von Campe contracts HORN for furnace repair

Glass furnace manufacturer and turnkey specialist HORN Glass Industries was awarded the contract for the general repair of furnace 4 at Noelle + von Campe.

The German packaging glass manufacturer relies on HORN to equip furnace 4 with the latest technology. HORN is responsible for the complete planning of the refractories and steel construction for the furnace, distributor and five forehearths.

The regenerative end fired furnace is equipped with state of the art gas heating, measuring and control equipment together with a higher-level control system based on PCS7. A HORN E-Fusion power boosting system brings the electrical power into the glass melt via twelve electrodes.

To cool the electrode holders and further equipment, HORN equips the furnace with a complete cooling water supply. In addition, Noelle + von Campe in the future will be relying on two new HORN HVR 700F-2P batch chargers.

The contract includes furnace drain and demolition as well as the complete construction work for refractory material, steel and equipment. The furnace will be then tempered and put into operation by HORN. Commissioning is planned for June 2025.
