2016

Rongxing Bei: DURITAL AZ58 and DURITAL K99 EXTRA for the Superstructure of Glass Melting Furnaces.

Johannes Vetter: Thermochemical Regenerator - High Efficiency Heat Recovery for Oxy-Fired Glass Furnaces.

Anne Jans Faber: Project proposal - Reducing structural heat losses at glass Furnaces.

Anne Jans Faber: New CelSian CO+ sensor for burner control.

Marvin: The production at Ling Nan refractories, China and the quality control.

 

Next Steps

  • Finishing of the outstanding blister crucible tests with and without glass melt change.
  • Further discussion about the possibility for the Non-destructive measurement of refractory materials
    (inner structure, quality acceptance of the pristine material, corrosion follow up…).

 

Planned meetings

Conference in Turkey: ICG Annual Meeting and 32nd Şişecam Glass Symposium in Istanbul, Oct. 22-25th 2017.
