Utilities and central power supply - an eco-friendly feedstock solution

For a float glass plant to operate reliably and at peak performance, it needs a steady supply of energy and other media like natural gas, electricity, inert gas, tin and much more.

 

 

 

As a system solution provider, we have in-depth expertise and experience in delivering energy and media to a whole host of plants. Our objective is to provide a turnkey solution with all the infrastructure, supply lines, sensors and control technology.

 

 

"From the start, we liaise with you to plan the supply of energy and media in new plants, extensions or replacements."

 
Dennis Schattauer, Managing Director at German Floatglass Technology GmbH

Our solution

We’re equally familiar with open and closed loop cooling water systems and supplying technical gases. To provide H2 and N2 inert gas, we’ll find the solution to match your float glass plant. We combine the high product quality you target with a sparing use of media too. CNUD EFCO GFT is all about green engineering. 

Heat is valuable. Why not make full use of it?

Waste heat recovery systems >

An intelligent solution: we transfer the heat that is discharged during the cooling process via pipelines to the warehouse area, where it serves to maintain the required minimum glass temperature during the cold season. At the same time, this reduces heating costs in the warehouse.

Service

Our service for the glass industry

Construction and commissioning of a new glass production line is only the first stage in a good customer relationship. Professional service in daily operation is just as important: We want your investment to be profitable without any interruption – that’s why our engineers are there for you with guidance and support over the entire life cycle of the plant.
