Glass Tempering Upgrade Now Marketed By Cnud

Responsibility for the sales and commissioning of the Glaverbel Heat Balancing System (GHBS) has been transferred from EFCO Ltd to CNUD.

GHBS convection technology was developed by Glaverbel and involves the installation of air nozzles into the heating chamber of a radiant glass temperer. These nozzles deliver controlled streams of heated air onto the surface of glass and as result, glass processors are able to toughen conventional float glass much more efficiently but more importantly, process Low-E hard and soft-coated glass uniformly and rapidly on their existing equipment

The licence for the GHBS system was acquired by EFCO Ltd some 12 months ago during which time over 25 systems have been supplied as original equipment or retrofitted. Both EFCO Ltd and CNUD are members of the Glass Engineering Division of the BMT Group, so when confusion about the suitability of GHBS on other types of glass temperer occurred, the decision was taken to transfer all operations to CNUD.

Says Product Manager, Ivan De Baere: "We needed to make it clear to the glass processing market that the GHBS system can be retrofitted to almost every type of radiant furnace - not just EFCO. Although CNUD is a leader in the manufacture of annealing and decorating lehrs, they do not manufacture glass tempering equipment. This change will remove any confusion in the market and enable us to build on the excellent success we have achieved so far."

Although CNUD's head office is in Brussels, sales of the GHBS system will continue to be spearheaded from the Group's UK offices in Weybridge, Surrey.

GHBS SYSTEM AT GLASS PROCESSING & TECHNOLOGY EXHIBITION - STAND B42

At the Glass Processing & Technology Exhibition, CNUD will demonstrate the many benefits that upgrading a radiant tempering furnace with the GHBS system can achieve.

Low-E glass is now the standard for insulated architectural glass. The Low-E coating is applied during manufacture and is designed to reflect heat in hot weather and retain it in cold. The glass still has to be tempered for safety reasons, but its very properties mean that toughening it presents problems for glass processors using radiant furnaces. Even when successful, processing times and breakages are far in excess of those for standard clear float glass.

GHBS is the answer to this problem. It involves the installation of air nozzles into the heating chamber of a radiant glass temperer. These nozzles deliver controlled streams of heated air onto the surface of glass and as result, glass processors are not only able to toughen conventional float glass far more efficiently but also process Low-E hard and soft-coated glass uniformly and rapidly on existing equipment.
