Tank Melt

The development of tank melting was a prerequisite for industrial mass production.
Tank melting is suitable for
  • Filter glasses
  • Technical glasses
  • Glass types that are highly to mildly viscous
  • Glasses prone to crystallization
Blocks, bars, and even round discs (ø up to 1.5 m) can be melted.

Main characteristics of tank melting:
  • Optimal utilization of raw materials
  • High energy efficiency
