In the future, the plant will produce 135 tonnes of flint glass per day.

With glassmaking in the family as far back as 1523, today, the HEINZ-GLAS Group is one of the leading manufacturers of glass flacons and caps for the perfume and cosmetics industry. HEINZ-GLAS produces attractive, individually designed flacons and jars made of crystal-white transparent glass, white opal glass and feeder-coloured glass.

In February, the glass melting technology specialist HORN® received the order to repair furnace 7 of the glass flacons and caps manufacturer HEINZ-GLAS at the Piesau plant in Germany. The order comprises a 49 m² end fired furnace with six forehearths for the production of flacons. In the future, the plant will produce 135 tonnes of flint glass per day.

The scope of supply consists of the design of the melting tank, distributor and the forehearths as well as the steel structure. Furthermore, HORN® will supply the equipment for heating, measuring and control, boosting, over the reversing system up to the batch charger HVR® 400 as well as further furnace equipment.

The entire construction as well as the commissioning is finally supervised and managed by HORN® Glass Industries AG.
