A released variant of Falorni Tech FLEX-COND: fully customer-driven and crucial for boosting the thermal homogeneity in the forehearth.
What is FLEX-COND?
FLEX-COND is the Flexible Glass Conditioning System for NNPB production designed by Falorni Tech. A combination of technologies continuously innovated since 2010.
Why FLEX-COND can makes a real difference in terms of efficency, flexibility and innovation
by Falorni Tech has been developed to serve this objective: before all, the glassmaker who wants to turn its production in NNPB must be sure of the performance of its glass conditioning system. And the FLEX-COND system represents the optimal combination of technologies, properly upgraded since 2010, that works for reaching the highest
level of Thermal Homogeneity Index THI with values beyond 98% with flint glass.
FLEX-COND allows adjusting the forehearth superstructure heating/cooling geometry with a large number of combinations that make possible the synchronized effect of the combustion and the cooling functions.
The key issue in NNPB production is the thermal homogeneity that the melted glass shall be achieved in the conditioning forehearth. Only by the proper combination of technologies that involve the whole forehearth, the achievement of the suitable thermal homogeneity can be possible.
The Flexible Glass Conditioning System
THE MAIN BENEFITS OF FLEX-COND
FLEX-COND is not a purely concept focused on the refractory structure design of the forehearth but it is an integration of technologies that together contribute to the overall performance of the conditioning system.
Thermal homogeneity index higher than 98%
Optimal for any type of glass production (clear, flint, reduced or oxidized)
Suitable for any channel size and pull
Flexible and quick setting of heating and cooling functions in any zone
