Summary

A brief review of what Owens-Brockway has been using in recent decades in the regenerator and checker area, what Owens-Brockway is currently evaluating in short-term trials and full-scale system approaches for alternative regenerator materials, and what Owens-Brockway views as the future for regenerator systems for conventional regenerative-type furnaces, including development of additional refractory materials.
