You can also choose from a range of stirrer mechanisms suitable for all widths of forehearth channels.

 

reliable and versatile feeders

The Servo feeder is also used with press and blowing machines to produce tableware articles such as vases, tumblers, jugs, dishes and stemware.
  • The BH-F 50 Feeder Mechanisms are suitable for hollow glass production: soda-lime, lead crystal, borosilicate or barium crystal glass, depending on spout depth. The gob weight range varies from 14 g to 2.8 kg with pull ranges from 2 to 48 tonnes per day.

Stirrer Mechanisms

A range of Stirrer Mechanisms designed to be adaptable for all forehearth stirring applications and channel widths.

Configured with refractory paddle stirrers to help with chemical homogeneity, the stirrers lift the heavier contamination materials from the channel bottom and disperse them into the bulk glass so that visible defects, such as ‘Cat Scratch’ cord, on finished products are completely eliminated.

The stirrers can also be supplied in multiple banks, either to further improve homogeneity or as part of a forehearth colouring system
