Anchor Glass Co. has licensed BOC's CGM(TM) technology for glass processing in its Warner Robins, Ga., glass container manufacturing plant following a successful trial of the system and components. The glass quality from Warner Robins' modern oxy-fuel furnace has been improved through the enhanced heat transfer rate that the BOC patented CGM oxygen combustion technology provides. "The CGM technology delivers a step-change improvement in the melting quality of glass furnaces," said Steve Hope, vice president, global glass market sector, BOC. "It can also be used to boost the capacity or increase yield from an existing furnace, or as the base technology in a new furnace. The CGM system can routinely deliver capacity increases of up to 15%, and some customers have reported increases of greater than 50%. CGM technology from BOC also has been shown to extend the campaign life of conventional air-fuel furnaces, providing significant benefits to glass producers."
