Case story: Walther-Glas, Germany

The introduction of Superthal® heating modules in the forehearths of a German glassware producer has reduced energy consumption by 40%!

After years of using conventional heating systems, a German producer of domestic and all-purpose glassware dramatically reduced energy consumption with the help of Kanthal®. Jointly developed with Kanthal®, the company introduced a new, shorter and simpler distribution system that conveys the molten glass to the processing machinery. It also reconstructed two melters to accommodate Superthal® heating modules and also built a new one with the same type of flat panels.

The result is a reduction from 63,000 kWh a month to 38,000 kWh, a reduction of 40%.
