  • Hot-spot bubbling improves thermal and chemical homogeneity in the melt, reducing cord and stone losses
  • Under batch blanket bubbling can improve melt-rate and increase furnace bottom temperatures
  • Reduces the overall time to complete a colour change and homogenises colour during the change
  • Slow precision bubbling eliminates the risk of seed and parasite bubbles in the product
  • Independent control of bubble size and bubbling rate for each bubbler point
  • Throat and distributor bubbling for intermittent use during colour or composition change
  • Unique blockage resistant bubbler tubes allow slow controlled bubbling without the risk of injector damage
  • Comprehensive operator interface with touch screen HMI allowing easy access to key system information and control variables
  • Design backed by more than 30 years of continuous development
  • Bubbling can be suspended for prolonged periods and effectively restarted
