Preheating of batch and cullet by means of furnace combustion gases still creates great interest in the international glass industry, also certified by the considerable number of inquiries for efficiently operating systems meeting set requirements. The industry is continuously evaluating the possibility of reducing melting energy, lowering carbon dioxide emissions and supporting environmental protection. Plants installed several years ago by ZIPPE in the container glass industry have and still are showing remarkable results, thanks to the German company“s commitment and development work in this field. ZIPPE is also continuing its work on advanced preheating technology and the former limitation of batch and cullet mixing ratio no longer exists. In fact, the range of applications is continuously increasing. A new generation preheater is presently undergoing tests at production scale at ZIPPE, with promising results, and will soon be will be introduced to the glass industry and offered to the market. ZIPPE is available to provide further information for those interested.
