CoolTemper has installed a new full convection tempering furnace at South Africa-based PG Glass. Company officials say the furnace features a newly developed Dynamic Quench and Dynamic Windbox system.

Officials explain that the system will help the furnace save between 9-36% on the energy of the quench kilowatt power usage on varying glass loads. The system is fully automatic and doesn’t need an operator for activation.

“This is a significant lifetime running costs advantage for any business with expected energy cost savings running into hundreds of thousands of dollars,” say officials.

CoolTemper is exploring modifying existing machines to take advantage of the new technology.
