Products or Machinery
SORG supplies regenerative and recuperative furnaces, all-electric and oxy-fuel melters, together with distributors and forehearths heated by gas or electricity, or a combination of these. Our installations are used to melt all glasses that are produced in commercial qualities, including various soda-lime compositions, fluoride opal, lead and lead-free crystal, neutral and hard borosilicate, C and E glass for insulating and textile fibres, and even basalt for mineral insulating fibres.
The smallest SORG furnace currently operating melts just 2,5 tons per 24 hours (fluoride opal glass), whilst the largest produces more than 450 tons of containers per day (soda-line green glass).
Our furnace and forehearth equipment are uniquely suitable for long-term continuous operation in the difficult environment typically found in glass factories. The design of most equipment is based on our own extensive experience and most items are specially produced for our customers.
SORG service engineers always provide supervision of the installation and commissioning work, and on-site training. In recent years there has been a significant increase in the requirement for additional services during the complete lifetime of an installation, such as condition and operation audits, maintenance and repair, and training. We now offer formal service contracts as an option, which formalise the service arrangements for a particular installation over a specified time period such as 2 years.
