Summary

Our company started with coal firing of drum-type furnaces for sodium silicate. One furnace was fired with brown coal. A second furnace was cross-fired for green glass, fired with hard coal. In early 1984, we started the burners on an end-port furnace producing soda-lime glass for containers. This furnace is fired with petrocoke and is also operating successfully.
