Glass production

The Sandvik program includes products for the manufacture of many types of glass, such as float glass (flat glass), fiber glass, glass containers, glass tubing and art glass. We produce, for example, recuperator tubes in a wide range of high-temperature corrosion resistant materials.

  • Annealing lehrs
  • Danner process / Velo process (glass tubes)
  • Float baths (tin baths)
  • Glass ampoule sealing (pharmaceutical)
  • Glass fusion / downdraw process (display glass)
  • Glass feeders (forehearths)
  • Glass cullet melting (fiberglass)
  • Glass toughening furnaces
  • Glass bending furnaces (e.g. windshields)
  • Glass drawing furnaces (single fiber)
  • Pot furnaces (open, closed and scalped)
