Zippe´s new Vibrotube® batch charger has been in operation since May 2014 at a state-of the art container glass production facility in Germany with approx. 300 tpd.
Compared to existing chargers on the market, this innovative product’s characteristics include less wear, improved batch distribution in the melting bath and better adjustment possibilities.
“The results are stunning and have clearly outperformed our expectations. It was evident that we would expect improvements, but the magnitude of the energy savings due to the Vibrotube was not predictable. For us these results and the high satisfaction of the customer show that we are on the right track”, said company officials.
