High quality raw materials that pass quality tests, such as granulometry, chemical analysis and humidity check, and in-house cullet (glass remains) are weighed and mixed by the automated dosing system in accordance with the recipes provided by the engineers and monitored by the quality specialists.
Mixture of raw materials and glass are continuously fed into the state of the art Horn furnaces heated up to around 1600° C via natural gas to produce homogenous molten glass.
Molten glass flows into the tin bath filled with molten tin. Glass floats on the molten tin - hence float method of glass production. Qualified specialists control the glass formation process to achieve the optimal conditions for producing premium quality glass. Thickness and dimensions of final product are regulated via controlling tweel and rollers in tin bath.
Passing through the annealing lehr, glass is cooled down to take its final shape. Before it may be cut, glass is subjected to quality inspection via ISRA defect scanners, which are able to identify defects of up to 0.1 mm.
Premium quality glass that has passed quality inspection is automatically cut to dimensions as per customer needs. After the cut, each glass sheet is inspected via scanner to detect any geometrical inconsistencies of up to 1 mm.
Packing is done using both wooden and steel caps to ensure protection during transportation. The glass is packed both on prodution line and offline, via automatic packing machine.
Packed glass is loaded to open-top containers, closed containers and trains, allowing serving clients with differing logistical needs.
