Start-up of the second float glass line at Düzce Cam

Fives and Düzce Cam are proud to announce the successful start-up of a new complete float glass line with a melting capacity of 800 tons per day to produce float glass with thickness from 3 mm to 10 mm on November 15, 2016.

 

The new float glass line incorporates the latest melting technologies, in compliance with quality, output and energy performance for the production of both residential and automotive glass.

The major asset of this new float glass line is Prium® Melt-Float furnace with L.E.M.®, Low Energy Melter technology from Fives. Thanks to its geometry, the furnace allows to save up to 20% energy compared to conventional technologies.

The furnace is also equipped with a comprehensive digital control system and a smart software tool for production optimization, providing a comprehensive vision of the glassmaking process.

In 2010, Fives had already supplied its first float glass line of 600 tons per day to Düzce Cam.
