Our glass melting and glass conditioning technology is used to produce several types of glass:

  •     Container glass flint, extra flint, amber, green or colored
  •     Table ware glass soda lime
  •     Lead crystal
  •     Barium crystal
  •     Neutral glass pharmaceutical tube
  •     Borosilicate
  •     Sodium silicate
  •     Ceramic frit
  •     Glass tile

Neutral Borosilicate glass is used mainly for pharmaceutical applications. This kind of glass is characterized by a high content of boric anhydride and alumina, a low level of alkaline-earth oxides and an alkaline level significantly lower than the one of soda-lime glass.

Glass Service had a great and successful experience with Borosilicate furnaces projecting, installing and commissioning more than 5 furnaces in the last 4 years. Each one has demonstrated an high quality of glass production and a relevant ease-of-use in operation with furnace life higher than average.

For tableware production is mostly used soda lime glass, sometimes barium oxide or boron is added. Glass Service has a great experience of design and construction of furnaces for this type of production.

Gathering in this case is made either in manual way or using a robot, as well as using forehearths with feeder mechanism. So the working zone may include gathering bays, feeders, etc.

A complete production project provides a custom solution to match precisely customers requirements.
