Prium® E-Melt, electric furnaces
Electric Melting Technology
All-electric furnace systems and mixed-fuel Systems; operating cold top or semi-hot top offer an advanced technological solution to melting many different types of glass. Offering energy efficiency, high-quality product and ease of operation, electric furnace systems require capital investment comparable or less then fuel fired alternative technologies and normally cheaper rebuild costs.
Electric melting technology can be applied to all glass types and especially specialist glasses including:
- Lead glass
- Borosilicate (heat resistance)
- High-quality tableware and cosmetics
- Fibre glass
There is no technical limitation to furnace capacity.
Combining electric melting technology with fuel fired and oxy-fuel combustion can create highly flexible systems without loss of the advances of purely electric systems.
