Prium® Melt Recuperative and Special Melters
Prium® Melt Recuperative
The Prium® Melt Recuperative is available for a wide range of glass compositions and qualities. The lower capital cost of a recuperator, when compared to regenerators, mean that for smaller furnaces the Prium® Melt Recuperative is a cost effective option.
The Prium® Melt Recuperative is side-fired, with a series of burners in the furnace side walls (breast-walls). The waste gases preheat the combustion air being fed to the furnace burners.
Using our extensive experience we can design and install melters for a wide range of applications and glass types, as an example Fives have successfully developed and implemented 3 hybrid furnaces for the production of continuous basalt fibre.
Our ‘in-house’ dedicated team of engineers and glass technologists, together with our specialist installation and commissioning engineers are ready to assist with any requirements for furnace design, construction and operation.
