Float bath furnaces

Where glass originates from

Float bath furnaces

Float process is the established technique to produce glass from the specific combination of raw materials such as soda and ash with recycled  glass (cullet), melted into the furnace at approximately 1500°C. The molten glass coming out of the furnace is then delivered smoothly and  continuously to the float bath, where tin allows the uniform thickness of the glass ribbon, making it solid. While moving smoothly on rolling conveyors the glass ribbon is further cooled through the annealing lehr, allowing the perfect flatness and solidity.Finally glass is cut into  jumbo size sheets, before being stacked for transportation or other production phases.
There are various detection inspections on glass to ensure the best optical quality in each phase of the process.

Originally the glass produced was 6mm thick, but now it is possible to vary the thickness of glass from 0,4 mm to 25 mm, modulating the speed  of glass exiting the bath.
Iocco designs and supplies equipment fully integrated on Float bath furnaces process in the cold area with maintenance cold repair and machine construction.Expertise, competitiveness and applied technology guarantee the reliability of our installations.
