Asset Durability and Cost Control for Glass Manufacturing Furnaces
A symposium organized by:The Glass Manufacturing Industry Council
Glass manufacturing furnaces are typically the most valuable assets in a glass plant. In today’s world, we are faced with higher demands for furnaces to be more flexible and to yield superior glass quality, while operating at ever increasing cullet percentages and production pull rates. A high level of attention and maintenance is required to provide asset durability, control cost and an optimized lifetime without sacrificing glass quality and energy efficiency.
Asset Durability and Cost Control for Glass Manufacturing Furnaces symposium is focused on the latest technologies in the market to support efforts to increase the campaign life of glass manufacturing furnaces, while controlling costs and maintaining glass quality. It provides a forum for the audience to gain technical knowledge and exchange experiences with each other to promote efficient, safe, reliable and sustainable operations.
