Consultation on Furnace Operation and Design - Mathematical Modeling

Glass Service is one of the worldwide consultants in the field of glass melting.

GS provides modeling and consulting services for:

 SUPPORT OF FURNACE DESIGN

  • Furnace capacity
  • Oxy fuel conversions
  • Intensification of melting (eg. electric boosting and bubbling)
  • Design of a combustion system
  • Batch charging
  • Glass quality improvement
  • Electric melting
  • Design of the forehearth and glass homogeneity
  • Ecology of melting
  • Emission reduction 


FURNACE TROUBLESHOOTING

  • Glass quality improvement
  • Furnace lifetime extension
  • Oxy fuel firing
  • Burner design and set-up

 

When such service is needed

It has been proven in more than 500 modeling studies that GS is able to solve questions about:

  • New furnace design
  • Combustion systems (gas, oil, and oxygen)
  • Increase of the pull
  • Bubbling, electric boosting, barrier, and submerged throat
  • Furnace repair

Modeling helps to:

  • Solve blister, seed, stone, and cord problems
  • Solve furnace corrosion in the glass melt or combustion environment (including oxy fuel)
  • Optimize furnace operation
  • Optimize forehearth operation
