In May 2018 HORN Glass Industries AG received the order from Piramal Glass to redesign their existing 100 tpd furnace for the premium cosmetics & perfumery bottles. The order comprised design drawings and some equipment (combustion-, boosting and reversing system) for the furnace with 8 forehearth lines in total.

HORN supplied the end fired furnace designed with appliance of the most advanced technology to save energy, reduce emission values and extend furnace life. The furnace is designed with a melting area of 82.8 m² to produce up to 145 tpd in total.

HORN had been awarded to supervise the whole furnace repair works. However due to the Covid-19 pandemic the supervision and commissioning was done by Piramal alone with remote assistance of HORN experts. The new 145 tpd furnace was put successfully in operation in June 2020.
