Variable Speed Blower Control System

Control system of quenching blowers for improved energy efficiency


Three reasons for choosing the Variable Speed Blower Control System

1.

Energy savings through better overall energy efficiency

2.

Excellent tempering pressure-energy ratio

3.

Higher productivity with reduced changeover time

Highest quenching energy efficiency


The Variable Speed Blower Control System (S™) upgrade for tempering furnaces is designed to ensure the highest quench energy efficiency.

Reduced energy costs come from remarkable savings in blower energy consumption and eliminating reactive blower power from loading the electric network.

Adding the frequency converter controlled blower system allows more flexibility and energy efficiency for tempering all glass thicknesses. Besides, it enables remarkably lower noise level of the quenching blowers.

“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.
