RUSSIA - Production facility upgrade features SORG ST SERIES technology
The recent repair and upgrading of an existing container production facility at the Kamyshin factory in Volgograd, Russia, included the installation of a SORG STW working end and 4 STF forehearths.
The working end and forehearths are gas heated, utilising the SORG VMC2 gas heating system.
The forehearths are designed for maximum pulls of between 50 and 85 t/24 h of flint glass for the production of bottles and wide mouth containers. Each forehearth is also equipped with the SORG forehearth CONTI-DRAIN system to eliminate zircon cord.
The furnace is of local design, but includes a SORG bubbler and throat booster.
This installation is the one of a number in Russia in which SORG ST SERIES glass conditioning technology is being used to upgrade existing installations.
