SORG reviews recent Stirom projects

Stirom S.A. in Bucharest / Romania, a member of Yioula Group, successfully commissioned their furnace number 2 in the second quarter of 2015.

This follows furnace number 3 which had been commissioned to the full satisfaction of the client in 2014. Both furnaces were modernized and increased capacity with upgraded state-of-the-art equipment as part of a development project.
The aim of both projects was to optimize the energy consumption by investments in the glass packaging manufacturing process. SORG’s supply included the complete engineering, equipment, refractory materials and the metallic components including waste gas equipment.
Furnace number 3 was originally a cross-fired regenerative furnace which was converted to an end-fired regenerative furnace with five production lines for a pull of over 300 t/d for container glass production. It was a challenge to install the largest possible furnace in the existing building considering all civil and structural limits. The rebuild time from glass to glass under the consideration that the furnace type was changed was minimal.
Furnace number 2, an end-port regenerative, was enlarged in surface and completely modernized to a state-of-the-art design for a capacity of over 200 t/d with three forehearth connections for flint and colored container glass production. On the occasion of the rebuild the whole structural steel and batch feeding connection were renewed and modernized.
For both furnaces the new EME-NEND® batch chargers were installed which gives the best possible batch control in the furnace.
The new waste gas treatment systems for both furnaces were commissioned successfully in order to reach low NOx and SOx emissions.
SORG is proud to be a partner of Yioula Group and to play a major role in achieving the expected excellent results on their furnaces No. 2 + 3 in Stirom S.A. in Bucharest / Romania.
