Not every furnace is suitable for glass melting and therefore choosing the right one may not be straightforward. However, by working with an experienced manufacturer who understands the processes involved in glass melting, you’ll certainly be able to find the right solution.
Glasses often have corrosive compositions whose fumes and splatter can attack fiberboard furnace linings and heating elements. You don’t want a furnace whose interior resembles the face of the moon; you don’t want the protective coating on the molydisilicide heating elements literally running down the element and dripping onto the load platform. Another potential problem that could occur is a molten glass breakout, which can lead to unplanned downtime and costly repairs. This is why knowing which glass melting kiln or glass furnace is crucial to a successful application.
