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. The HFT engineers are exceptionally experienced in building both regenerative float glass furnaces and oxy-fuel float glass furnaces.
Product category: Combustion technology for oxy-fired systems
Oxy-Fired glass melting furnaces
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.
All electric furnaces provide an economical and environmentally safe method of producing most types of glass. Cold top superstructure designs are suited from melting borosilicate, fluoride opal and lead glass.
