Energy consumption is an increasing concern for float glass makers. Hopefully, increasing insulation or furnace capacity are not the only alternatives to reduce your energy bill.

Solar glass

To address the growing market of high-quality solar glass, Fives has developed specific technologies for the production of ultra-clear, thin and tempered solar glass. Based on its long term experience of float glass and oxy-combustion, Fives has created dedicated Prium® Melt Oxy furnaces, enabling the production of solar glass with ultra-low iron content, though maintaining low energy consumption, high yield and long refractory lifetime.
