Tecnoglass changes all tempering furnaces over to Glaston FC500

The positive experiences of the Glaston FC500™ continues. Tecnoglass in Colombia has decided to change all its furnaces over to the world's most modern technology.

The decision to change over to the Glaston FC500™ tempering furnace was, according to Christian T. Daes, Owner and Managing Director of Tecnoglass, quite straightforward.  

Christian explains: "When we saw the new furnace about two years ago at a show, we decided to test one. The furnace features major technology changes. For example, quench marks on the glass have been completely eliminated."   

"The results from our tests were so good that we decided to change all of our furnaces over to the FC500™ to have the most modern fleet of furnaces in the world," he continues.

The first Glaston FC500™ furnace was installed in November 2011, and the second one was installed at the end of 2012. Four additional furnaces are scheduled for installation and commissioning in March, April, June and September 2013.
