HORN‘s scope of supply includes the glass drain and the dismantling of the existing furnace.

The family-run Wiegand-Glas Group is a wellknown German container glass manufacturer dedicated to innovative packaging concepts made of glass and PET. With more than 450 years of experience in development and production, the glass expert has become one of the most successful manufacturers of container glass in Europe. In its total of four plants, located in Steinbach am Wald, Ernstthal, Großbreitenbach and Schleusingen, more than eight million glass containers are produced daily for the beverage and food industries.

HORN‘s scope of supply includes the glass drain and the dismantling of the existing furnace. This was followed by the construction of the end fired furnace with the associated engineering of the refractory material and the steel structure, as well as the tempering, full melting and commissioning. The new furnace was also equipped with a new combustion system, an E-Fusion boosting system, various furnace equipment and a HORN HVR® 700 S-2P batch charger.The furnace is characterised by state-of-the-art technology. Side electrodes for melting boosting as well as bottom electrodes for barrier, refining and flow boosting and forehearth boosting were installed. In addition to the new burner holders, a swivelling agitator was also installed for the first time in this furnace – both innovations from HORN.

The glass flow was completed on schedule. HORN would like to thank Wiegand-Glas for the renewed trust placed in them and for the consistently good cooperation. The furnace manufacturer is already working on a follow-up order for another new furnace, which will be built at the Ernstthal plant.
