Turnkey Plants

The key to the success in turnkey projects is to seamlessly integrate engineering, purchasing, construction and project management.
Henry F. Teichmann, Inc. has successfully implemented glass projects around the world by using a turnkey project approach. All activities of building a turnkey plant are coordinated and cost, schedule, safety, technical specifications, performance are properly managed and prioritized throughout the project. The clients are placed in the center of the process, with regular project review meetings and periodic updates and reports.

With the turnkey services, projects of any size typically see reduced cost, shortened schedules and better coordinated activities. Larger rebuilds and Greenfield projects benefit the most.
Types of Turnkey Plants
For over a half a century, Henry F. Teichmann, Inc. has participated with many different companies in the transition from the vertical draw to the float process. The continual re-engineering of the float glass process over the years has revolutionized the flat glass industry, achieving a consistently higher quality product. Today we take for granted the design and process requirements that have produced the increase in quality and production rate while decreasing the fuel consumption and environmental emissions.

HFT is capable of designing and building complete production facilities for all type of float glass including architectural, automotive, coating and electronic float glass, ranging from ultra-thin to ultra-thick, low tonnage to high tonnage and ultra-clear to privacy tint.

HFT/PPG Partnership
HFT has teamed up with PPG to provide clients with a turnkey solution to high quality float glass production. HFT and PPG have successfully converted several conventional float glass furnace to Oxy-Fuel and several have been built new.

If your requirement is for the rebuild of an existing furnace or a turnkey project for a new facility, HFT has the resources and technical expertise to help you achieve the next level of quality and environmental improvements that the future will demand.

Henry F. Teichmann, Inc. continues to meet the needs of the ever-changing fiberglass industry by providing fossil-fuel melters, electric melters, direct fired melters and oxy-fuel technologies. Redesign of existing process technology has become a specialty of HFT as increased production, higher yields and environmental regulations are now the driving force behind the changes in process design.

HFT has provided furnaces that range in size from 35 to 250 MTPD in production of fiberglass applications for wool, continuous strands, chopped strands and other type operations.
Henry F. Teichmann, Inc. has designed, built and commissioned complete process facilities for high quality container glass operations. In doing so, we have established a worldwide reputation for technical excellence, safety, environmental concern, outstanding customer service and effective cost control.

Our commitment to total quality performance is evidenced in the design and construction of plants and furnaces that meet the individual clients needs in industrialized and developing countries.
Sodium Silicate
Henry F. Teichmann, Inc. has worked with several leading sodium silicate manufacturers in design, redesign, build and rebuild of this unique process
Foam Glass
Henry F. Teichmann, Inc. has participated in the design, build, rebuild and repair of plants for this special glass material.
Tableware and Specialty
Since its inception, Henry F. Teichmann, Inc. has engineered and constructed virtually every type of glass furnace. Our expertise ranges from small day tanks to large float glass melters and from lead crystal to the increasingly more important environmental waste recycling furnaces. HFT personnel have the widest experience in specialty and pressed ware production of any private glass engineering firm.

Our employees are experienced professionals who are capable of designing, engineering and constructing any type of glass manufacturing plant that our clients require. We are extremely knowledgeable about plant layout criteria and design concepts that are essential for a fully integrated glass manufacturing facility.

 Henry F. Teichmann, Inc. is known around the world for the engineering, construction, rebuild and repair of glass melting furnaces. 
The furnaces, ranging from small unit melters to large float glass tanks, are designed and built with the state-of-the-art technologies to achieve the best fuel efficiency, highest product quality, lowest environmental emissions, least unit cost and longest campaign.
Glass Products
Henry F. Teichmann, Inc. has designed, built, repaired and rebuilt hundreds of furnaces across the world for all types of glass, including:
Float Glass
Container Glass (Hollow Glass)
Tableware and Pressware
Sodium Silicate
Pattern Glass
Borosilicate and Tubing
Other Specialty Glass
In 1951, HFT introduced our Pre-Designed Package End-Fired Furnace concept to the glass industry. The range of furnace melting areas are from 152 ft 2 to 1000 ft 2 and are suited for melting flint, green or amber glass with optional additions such as electric boosting and bubbling systems. The HFT designs can be adapted to producing container, roll pattern, tableware, sodium silicate and others.


Generally these furnaces are individually designed to produce float glass, container glass and others. Production capacities range from 75 MTPD to 750 MTPD for clear and colored glass. Electric boosting and bubbling systems can be installed to increase the furnace efficiency and improve glass quality. Designs include gas or oil firing capability.
Our furnace engineers have provided furnace designs that are now operational producing float glass, container glass, fiberglass as well as other types of glass. Oxy-fuel furnaces are the perfect solution because they significantly reduce or in some cases eliminate emissions from the glass melting process. Its merits also include fuel consumption reduction, glass quality improvement, operation and maintenance convenience, and future repair cost savings.

Henry F. Teichmann, Inc. is the only independent engineering and contracting firm in the world that has successful experience in designing and building Oxy-Fuel float glass furnaces.
