Prium® Melt SP (Segmented Process), advanced melting
Built on years of experience producing melters for a wide range of special glasses, Fives has developed a range of advanced melting options to accommodate the needs of new, large-scale glasses now being produced.
Supported by batch melting analysis and CFD modelling, this new generation of melters can be tailored to the output and quality requirements of the process.
The melting process actually comprises a number of important time and temperature dependent steps from primary melting to final refining of the glass. By carefully making sure that, for each phase of the process, all the glass is at the right temperature for the right period of time, we can ensure that the final glass produced is of the quality required.
