Fives Prium PlanarTek Combustion System-FIVES

A new innovative approach for Working Ends and Forehearths. The Prium® PlanarTek combustion system is designed to suit the customers' production requirements and when combined with our patented flat flame burner block enhances glass conditioning performance with reduced gas consumption. Prium® PlanarTek combustion system can be readily integrated with a bespoke heat recovery system to further increase energy and operational efficiencies.

PlanarTek technology features

  • The innovative burner block works in conjunction with the nozzle mix burners. The burner block has been designed to the exterior dimensions of a standard forehearth burner block which normally holds three pre-mix burners.
  • The innovative burner block utilises the nozzle mix burners unit in place of the three standard pre-mix burners.
  • The innovative burner blocks are designed for the forehearth heat/cool zones to deliver a very efficient thermal transfer from the flame to the forehearth superstructure and glass surface
  • The innovative burner block augments the efficiency of heat transfer obtained from both the heating and cooling inputs to the zones.
