Stewart's EcoMelt® furnace design is based on operational experience towards maximizing profit. Maximizing profit requires low defect counts, high pull per furnace CAPEX, and long life to minimize rebuild costs and rebuild lost production time.
Below is a detailed computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulation performed by CelSian.
EcoMelt® furnaces give independent float manufacturers access to the latest furnace technology. Two EcoMelt® based furnaces are in operation today in Italy with both producing premier quality float glass. The two furnaces combined have produced over 200,000 tons of ultra-clear glass. These two furnaces serve as the robust foundation for the EcoMelt® furnace.
Founded in the 1950s. First independent float glass producer in Italy.
EcoMelt® furnaces employ a high degree of automation to control pressure, temperature, and glass level with minimal operator intervention. Furnace automation results in increase yields, decreased...
