Technical Papers

A Method for Improving Regenerative Furnace Efficiency - By R.J. NAVEAUX and J.J. SHEA

This report on an effective system of combustion control and heat recovery was presented at the 42nd Annual Conference on Glass Problems held at the Univ. of Illinois.

New Generation of End-Port Furnaces Part 1 - By T. J. Harper, TECO

The TECO Group had the opportunity to build two new end-port furnaces in 1994 and 1995. By coincidence, they were on sites a few hundred yards apart in Knottingley, West Yorkshire. The requirements were very different, but the end result was two very similar furnaces.

New Generation of End-Port Furnaces Part 2 - By T. J. Harper, TECO

This article describes the energy consumptions and emissions of the end-port furnace installed by TECO in Knottingley, UK. The results show that a well-designed furnace is capable of both delivering energy consumptions which are comparable with the best in the industry and keeping emissions down.

The Glass Industry - Electric Melter Design - By W.R. Steitz & Carl W. Hibscher

This is a two part technical paper on the electric melting of glass. The first article deals with the basic electrical engineering aspects of electric melting and the second article deals with the furnace and melting of glass utilizing electric energy.

A Designer's Insight Into All-Electric Melting - By C. Hibscher, D. Davis, P. Davies &...

This article takes a look at the pros and cons of electric melters using joule-heating.

Batch Plant Modernization - By Douglas D. Burgoon

Batch plants are modernized to accommodate glass production increases and/or product quality improvements. It is easier to modify a batch plant at furnace rebuild time, but they can be modernized during a campaign without interrupting production. They can be repaired during a campaign, but it requires...

Looking for energy savings - getting our arms around... - By C.J. Hoyle, J.J. Shea and D.H. David

Possibilities exist to reduce energy use. Some are worth the investment now, others may be in the future. An experienced furnace design firm such as TECO can assist in evaluating the possibilities. The big mistake would be not to think about it.

Better Plant Performance Begins at the Batch House - By Douglas D. Burgoon

An efficient batch plant supplying high quality mixed raw materials is the key to producing high quality glass from the furnace. Here Douglas D. Burgoon, of Toledo Engineering Co., urges manufacturers to look to the batch house as the starting point for improving overall plant performance.

A Well Designed Batch Plant can Improve Profitability - By Douglas D. Burgoon

High quality mixed batch is essential for producing high quality glass and maximizing production yields. Here Douglas D. Burgoon, of Toledo Engineering Co., points out that the glass making process starts at the batch plant and describes the critical features of a good batch plant design.

Cullet Handling - By Carl Hibscher

Processing and effective handling of cullet for the batch.
