Beatson Clark Builds New White Flint Furnace

A new £5.4 million white flint furnace is now fully operational at glass manufacturer Beatson Clark. The furnace has a daily capacity of approximately 200 tonnes of glass and gives Beatson Clark in Rotherham the same size melting area of 70.6m² as the previous furnace.

However, an improved design will mean greater efficiency and reduced CO2 emissions in line with new Government targets.

Improvements to the regenerators and an increased wall height have increased the combustion volume, which means that more heat can be recycled.
