About us

Company details

GLASS SERVICE, a.s. (GS), headquartered in the Czech Republic with offices in the Netherlands, U.S.A, China and Slovakia is a leading consultant in the field of glass melting, furnace modeling, advanced furnace control and operation, as well as troubleshooting and optimizing furnace designs and their performance.

GS programmers have developed in-house mathematical modeling software, enabling the optimization of the glass melting and combustion processes in glass furnaces and forehearths. More than 700 different projects have been completed using the company's software. Presently, a new version of furnace modeling software (GFM 5.0) is being developed. GFM 5.0 uses a new generation of non-orthogonal mesh which enables proper representation of all geometric features and local refinement.

GS Engineering provides electric pot/crucible furnaces and small melting tanks for hand-made production, glass jewellery and specialty glass. Additionally, laboratory furnaces for high temperature observation and redox measurement are delivered. GS participates in electric boosting design, optimization and delivery.

GS has its own laboratory for glass defect analysis and analyzes more than 2000 defects yearly. After the company analyzes the defects, the customer receives a report with recommendations on how to solve or reduce the problems. Additional testing capabilities utilize basic and applied research in the field of glass melting.

Considerable effort has been invested into developing a "Supervisory Advanced Control System" using proprietary software known as the Expert System – ES III. To date, more than 135 installations have been successfully deployed worldwide. To support each ES III™ installation, GS engineers work on batch identification, monitoring and visualization software. The pictures taken by furnace observation cameras are analyzed and the batch line position and distribution is quantified. The result of such an analysis is sent to the ES III™ software, where it is used to optimize and control the batch length and distribution using model-based predictive control. Customers benefit greatly from the installation.

GS also supplies selected high quality raw materials to the glass industry, fulfilling REACH regulations for importing chemicals to the EU. GS is the only company in Europe to have registered lead silicate.

Furthermore, GS serves the glass market with advanced burners systems from company FlammaTec, spol. s r.o., a joint venture initiative with STG Combustion Control GmbH & Co KG.
