BOC offers a flexible solution to increase the throughput or maintain the capacity of a glass furnace without significant capital investments.
The COROX® Hotspot Boost is a horizontal oxy-fuel burner system for end-port furnaces to increase the temperature of the oxy-fuel flame and improve the amount of energy radiated to the glass bath. This results in an increase in capacity of up to 10% for healthy furnaces. The technology also supports maintaining capacity for ailing furnaces and extending furnace life.
