  • Careful electrode placement and system design offers greatly reduced refractory wear when compared to other boost system concepts
  • Proven hot installation techniques allow integration into existing furnace during operation without need for furnace shutdown or significant production loss
  • Promotes thermal and chemical homogeneity leading to reduced seeds and stones and providing greater overall glass quality
  • Significantly improves furnace operating stability by fixing and reinforcing hot spot position
  • Improves combustion heat transfer allowing burners to operate more efficiently by lifting cold glass to the melting surface, increasing overall thermal efficiency
  • Individual system design optimised using in-house physical modelling techniques
  • Greater furnace output without altering furnace footprint or increasing flue gas emissions
  • Comprehensive control panels with option for integration into existing plant computer system
  • All systems incorporate Electroglass proven high quality electrode holder technology
  • Close cooperation with specialist transformer manufacturers provides robust power systems fit for many years service
  • Increase furnace output by up to 60%
