Vidroporto S.A., a 100 percent Brazilian owned company and container glass producer for alcoholic beverages and food markets, has chosen SORG as its technological partner for their new end-fired regenerative furnace.
Looking to reduce the carbon footprint, this new 480 tonnes per day high-boosted end-fired furnace will be the first one in South America foreseen to comprise high-amount of electrical heating (boosting) and will incorporate all modern and proven SORG innovations to produce high-quality glass while achieving high thermal efficiency, lower CO2 emissions and a long furnace campaign.
Besides the engineering, supervision, steel structure, equipment and technical support for the furnace, SORG will also deliver the glass conditioning system to feed 3 Tandem machines with the latest solutions, including SORG STW for the distributor and SORG 340+® design for the forehearths.
Vidroporto is one of current Brazilian glass companies that invest the most to improve its 2 production sites (4 furnaces in operation), and SORG is proud to be chosen for this new project. SORG is dedicating every effort to deliver the topmost technical solutions and support to Vidroporto’s team during the project, erection, commissioning and furnace operation.
