Product category: Raw material technology and prewarming cullet technology
Batch material and cullet storage
Forward thinking Most materials are stored in either steel or concrete silos. The special geometry of the silos themselves and sophisticated emptying devices ensure an even and continuous material flow in the silo which prevents the formation of stagnant areas where old material can collect.
Batch chargers of the EME-NEND series enable complete sealing of the doghouse with all the attendant advantages. No unregulated cold air entering the furnace, reduction of NOx emissions, reduction of energy consumption as well as less dust emission.
Protecting the environment Recycling glass is an important contribution to saving natural resources and protecting the environment. The use of cullet can save up to 30 % of the energy used in the melting process compared with that needed to melt from raw materials.
Faster and cheaper with Virtual Commissioning & Simulation
The structure of a facility as virtual twin in a simulation environment is an important component of Industry 4.0. The virtual commissioning in a simulation environment already allows for tests without involving the real facility itself. Therefore, virtually all functional errors and errors relating to sequencing can be detected. The risks of commissioning on site are nearly eliminated.
