P-D Refractories secures Chinese container order

P-D Refractories has secured an order for the delivery of its silica G100 from Yantai Changyu Glass container manufacturer in China.

Yantai is rebuilding its furnace number 2 and is the next move in its expansion programme. The programme aims to double the existing combined pull of 1200t from its seven furnaces and 20 production lines at its two sites in Shandong province.

The new 320t/d petroleum coke-fired container glass furnace has been designed by Horn Glass Technology and will produce 90% wine bottles and 10% tableware.

The key features of P-D Refractories’ no-lime (Ca0), binder-less silica grade G100 are purity (99.8% SiO2), high refractoriness under load and superior corrosion resistance.
