100th forehearth CONTI-DRAIN® system goes to India
The SORG forehearth CONTI-DRAIN® system is designed to reduce or eliminate zircon cords. More than 100 systems have now been sold over a time period of only 7 years, and this fact alone clearly demonstrates the effectiveness of the system in solving this difficult problem.
In addition to these systems a large number of "sleeping" systems have been installed. This involves the installation of the special CONTI-DRAIN® channel during a forehearth repair. The CONTI-DRAIN® hardware can be added and the system activated at any time with minimum disturbance to production.
Installation of the system on unprepared forehearths is also possible under some circumstances by drilling from the outside.
The forehearth CONTI-DRAIN® is currently in use for soda-lime, fluoride opal, neutral and hard borosilicate glasses. Worldwide experience has proved the effectiveness of the system in reducing or eliminating zircon cords. The operators of 100 lines cannot be wrong.
