The Gases Division of the Linde Group based in Munich, Germany and Glass Global are proud to present a two-day seminar on the theme of “Improved glass melting through oxy-fuel technologies” to be held in Lisbon, Portugal on 24. - 25.

June 2008.

This seminar includes a visit at Saint Gobain Covina float glass plant and offers glass manufacturers the unique opportunity to see Linde’s CGM™ technology applied to a large air-fuel float furnace for primarily the production of architectural glass. CGM™ has been installed in this furnace for approximately 2.5 years in the “zero port” area to increase the furnace capacity above its air-fuel design capability.

The CGM™ installation, including the drilling of the crown, was accomplished with the furnace in production. This process will be reviewed with the attendees prior to the plant visit.

Our special thanks go to Saint-Gobain Glass Portugal, for permitting us to visit their plant as a part of this seminar.

Note: Linde respects the need to maintain the confidentiality of our customer’s process information. Therefore, attendance to the seminar and the plant visit is by invitation only, with no float glass manufacturers permitted.

Note2: No cost is charged for participation - however each participant is responsible for his for hotel accommodation and travelling. The exact hotel details are yet to be published. Please click here to submit your personal data if you are interested in an attendance.
