This document gives a general picture of Nikolaus Sorg GmbH & Co, and includes a short history of the Company. Activities and products are also covered in general terms and finally there are instructions about how to travel to Lohr am Main, home of SORG.
In this brochure you will find extensive explanations of many technical aspects of glass melting together with detailed descriptions of SORG furnace designs and associated technologies. Although it is basically a SORG brochure it does contain much important information that is not only applicable to our products.
Standard gas heated distributors and forehearths are described in this document, as are the systems needed for their operation. Forehearth electrical heating is also covered, as are a number of add-on systems such as the forehearth CONTI-DRAIN® system for the elimination of zircon cords.
Suitable components form an integral part of all SORG furnace and forehearth installations. We offer a wide range of equipment specially developed for use in the glass industry, and these items are described in detail in this document.
The SORG forehearth CONTI-DRAIN® system is the only system that has consistently been able to reduce or eliminate zircon cord in the production. Since its introduction in 1999 an average of one system per month has been supplied. That many people cannot be wrong.
There are many low-NOx burners available, but the latest SORG development combines low emissions with simple adjustment and increased setting reproducibility.
Regular inspections by qualified personnel can provide significant benefits for the glass manufacturer. A SORG Service Contract allows the glass manufacturer to utilise the experience of SORG service specialists during the complete life of the furnace.
