Multi-pots glass furnace
The Multi Pot furnace designed by Falorni is in the cross between the well known pot furnace with 8 – 10 – 12 pots with an heat regenerative system and the traditional Pot furnace with a single or double pots.
The Multi Pots glass furnace permit to work, everyday, for one work shift also if you close pot thanks to the rotating system created by Falorni Glass Furnaces. The furnace can rotate of 360° bringing the pots with the refined glass in the working zone, while the other pot goes in the charging and melting area and they will be ready for the day after.
The heating system of this furnace comes from the top to the bottom: it means that the burner is placed in the middle of the vault and it directs the flame among the four pots. The smokes draught is placed in the front of each pots at 130 mm from the support sole: in this way, the flame wraps around the pots and not on the surface but passing under the pots.
This system permits that the hottest point be in the middle of the furnace close to the pot’s support sole.
The pots could be positioned at an height of 130 mm on apposite capitals of Electrofused material or Mullite and permit, in this way, at the flame to heat the pot’s support sole as well.
