Looking to increase throughput? Three reasons for choosing an additional heating chamber upgrade
Significant increase in line throughput
High quality and energy efficiency
Minimal investment cost in factory
Quick and cost-efficient upgrade to double-chamber production
The additional heating chamber is designed to be a quick and cost-efficient modification from single-chamber to double-chamber production, providing a significant boost to total line throughput. Depending on glass type and thickness, this upgrade increases line capacity on average up to 80% with clear glasses of less than 8 mm.
The double-chamber process uses less energy per processed glass square meter than a single-chamber process. This solution also enables you to achieve enhanced optical quality, since the glass reaches the temperature stability quicker with a shorter heating time under high temperature.

“Once we saw Glaston’s FC500 at Glasstec in Dusseldorf a few years ago, we knew that this was the tempering furnace for us. High-performance glass is required in our region, since temperatures soar to +50°C. And high-performance glass needs high-performance machinery. This is what Glaston’s FC500 is providing for us, so that we can serve our market using the most professional equipment,” says Abdullah Al-Qabandi, General Manager of G.M Al-Hadi Glass Industries in Kuwait City, Subhan Industrial Area, Kuwait.Read more
