Choose Continuous Melt Furnaces when you have near continuous and stable glass consumption. The furnace is charged in one end called the “melting side” where it travels through several different heat zones to open up and begin to fine out before passing through the dividing wall into the “working side”. The user pulls finished glass from the working side at a rate of about 25% of the total furnace capacity per day. For example, a 2,000 lb capacity furnace should provide at least 500 lbs of finished glass per day.
Our Continuous Melt Furnaces (E/CM models) are lined with press bonded AZS. We have built rectangle tanks from this material since 1999, and found it to hold up very well to thermal shock and corrosion. The first furnace liner we built from this material lasted 13 years at Tulane University in New Orleans, LA. We expect 8-10+ year lifespans for these furnaces.
Continuous Melt Furnaces are available as gas or electric heat source.
