Float

Float

Float lines have originally established the glass industry’s most demanding requirements for dosing and weighing accuracy, and mixing homogeneity. In addition, robust, reliable cullet return systems are indispensable.

Lahti Precision has repeatedly satisfied such needs with all the major global float glass producers, as well as regional and local producers. Our capabilities include all phases of engineering and construction for green field, brown field, and modernization projects. The scope can flexibly vary to meet specific client needs – from the supply of key components and control systems, to the
entire scope of the batch plant and cullet return system.

Container

Container

The production of light weight bottles has led to demanding batch quality requirements similar to those of float glass producers.

Lahti Precision batch houses allow for reliable, clean, and safe operation. Handling systems for additives are easy and safe to operate. Cullet handling systems are robustly built to meet the demands of modern container plants. Our capabilities include all phases of engineering and construction for green field, brown field, and modernization projects.

Tableware

Tableware

Several additives for bright colors and ultra-clear glass are commonly needed in tableware production.

Precise minor ingredient dosing can be secured by using Lahti Precision’s solutions, which can form an automatic or semi-automatic premix system or direct addition of the additives
to the batch mixer. Through careful design, contamination due to wear or material leakages is minimized.

Reinforcement fiber

Reinforcement fiber

Lahti Precision has developed unique, completely pneumatic batch plant technologies for reinforced fiber glass production. The know-how is based on our patented fluidization technology originally used in plaster and mortar dry mix batch plants.

Traditional screw feeders are replaced with air slides and double dosing valves. The only moving part is the dosing valve. Mixing takes place in a unique pulsating pneumatic blender, after which the batch is transported pneumatically to the furnace silo. The unique technology allows for simpler layouts, easier maintenance, and reduced operating costs. Through cooperation with a key client, Lahti Precision originally pioneered an innovative system to recycle fiber forming waste. The unique process does not require energyintensive grinding and incorporates simple transport systems – thus yielding low operating costs, high yield and availability, and very quick payback times. Our capabilities include all phases of engineering and construction for green field, brown field, and modernization projects. The scope can flexibly vary to meet specific client needs – from the supply of key components and control systems, to the entire scope of the batch plant and related fiber recycling systems.

Insulation wool

Insulation wool

The use of glass collected from households and industry which is then purified and used as a raw material in glass wool production is a growing trend.

Lahti Precision has developed jointly with its customers batch plant technology that is flexible in the percentage usage of cullet. These plants utilize our own dosing belt scale technology, which allows for a large range capacity – thus maintaining good cullet dosing accuracy.

LOW IRON GLASS
In solar applications very high transparency is one of the most critical requirements. Special attention for iron contamination, which reduces transparency, in raw materials should be taken
care of in a Batch Plant dedicated for low iron glass production. Lahti has a special design for material flow, special materials for contacting surfaces and raw material purification fulfilling
such requirements. Also modification of anexisting batch plant is possible for low iron production. Please contact us for additional information.

ULTRA THIN GLASS
Glass production for smart phones, tablets, flat TV sets and other electronic devices requires special technology. That starts from the batch plant, which has special features compared to a standard plant.
Valuable raw materials and ingredients are exclusively protected against contamination. Segregation of the batch is avoided by automatic batch container transfer replacing
conventional batch transport. References are available upon request.

BOROSILICATE, TECHNICAL AND ART GLASS
Lahti Precision’s expertise in batch plants covers also technical glass production; sodium silicate glass, borosilicate glass, foam glass and funnel glass. For art and decoration glass Lahti Precision
has also references. So practically all kinds of glass production and their special requirements are familiar to us.
