Our products

Product category: Electrically heated systems

Prium® E-Melt, electric furnaces

Electric Melting Technology
All-electric furnace systems and mixed-fuel Systems; operating cold top or semi-hot top offer an advanced technological solution to melting many different types of glass. Offering energy efficiency, high-quality product and ease of operation, electric furnace systems require capital investment comparable or less then fuel fired alternative technologies and normally cheaper rebuild costs.

Electric melting technology can be applied to all glass types and especially specialist glasses including:
Lead glass
Borosilicate (heat resistance)
High-quality tableware and cosmetics
Pharmaceutical
Fibre glass
There is no technical limitation to furnace capacity.
Combining electric melting technology with fuel fired and oxy-fuel combustion can create highly flexible systems without loss of the advances of purely electric systems.

Product category: Regenerative systems

Prium® Melt EF (End Fired Regenerative Furnace)

Fives is a world leader in design and implementation of melting and conditioning technology in all types of glass from small output hand-made lead crystal to large volume container production.
The group has implemented an integrated and forward thinking program to develop more energy efficient melting and conditioning processes. 
Our glass melting technology provides solutions to glass quality, energy efficiency, emission control, equipment life expectancy and safety. Whether the furnace is heated by gas or oil, Fives has the technology to suit every situation. The latest advances in technology assure the optimum design and control to ensure the best solution to a melting requirement. All our projects are designed using 3D modelling packages, thus eliminating any costly oversights at the equipment design stage.  
The Prium® Melt EF (End Fired) Regenerative Furnace is a cost effective solution to medium size furnaces for a wide range of glass compositions and qualities. The furnaces use conventional oil or gas heating with the regenerative system to recover residual heat from the waste gases. Fives can custom design and build furnaces to the dimensions specifically required for your project.
Fives prides itself on the close relationship it forms with its customers, resulting in long term partnerships.
Our ‘in-house’ dedicated team of engineers and glass technologists, together with our specialist installation and commissioning engineers are ready to assist with any requirements for furnace design, construction and operation.

Product category: Combustion technology for oxy-fired systems

Prium® Melt Oxy, oxy fired furnace

The production of thin ultra-clear glass for solar applications is a real challenge for melting furnaces.
Conventional throat type tanks for achieve excellent transparency by a low iron redox but are limited in quality due to bubbles and seeds. Float tanks have a high level of glass quality but are limited in transparency by higher iron redox and have of course no pattern.
Further key problems arise with the high transparency of the glass: high melt bottom temperatures limit the tank lifetime and the modified glass convection currents limit the pull rate.
Fives' solution
Based on its long experience in the design of float glass, glass furnace and oxy-combustion furnaces Fives has developed a proprietary tank design to address these problems. The new Prium® Melt Oxy furnace operates with a float type melt convection assuring high fining quality and has limited bottom temperatures even in the hot spot area.
Pattern solar glass of high transparency is produced on a 200 tpd production line. However, the proprietary tank design allows significantly higher melting capacities up to 800tpd with either multiple roll glass machines or a tin bath forming proce.
