Rath in Glass Industry
• Regenerator chamber
With the regenerator, it is important to store heat in the refractory lining and to insulate it from the outside.
With our wide range of options, we cover almost all of the product requirements for regenerative glass melting furnaces:
• Complete regenerator masonry for low, medium and high temperature zones
• Regenerator covers
• Checker blocks
• Complete masonry for the exhaust channel
• Melting tank
Another facet of our product range, especially for glass industry furnaces, are products for the safety layer and insulation, which are located under or behind the tank bricks.
For the lining of a melting tank, we offer pressed, stamped or cast floor blocks, which are already processed and pre-assembled based on customer requirements.
We also have special shaped bricks, such as burner bricks, doghouse protective sheet bricks, suspended cover bricks, and much more.
When it comes to the composition of raw materials, we use our broad spectrum of fireclays, andalusite or zirconium silicate in our bricks, and for compounds, we mainly use zirconium silicate or zircon mullite.
• Working tank
For lining a working tank, we offer pressed or cast bricks made of fireclay, andalusite and zirconium silicate materials. The compounds are mainly stamped or cast from zircon silicate or zircon mullite. Then the products are processed and pre-assembled.
For the working tanks, we produce both the various layers of the substructure and the cover plates or vaulted bricks for the superstructure.
We provide complete forehearth lines from one source for our customers.
• Microporous insulation boards
• Refractory bricks for another layer of insulation
• Andalusite bricks for a first safety layer
• Zircon mullite stamped compounds for another safety layer
• Cover plates
• Insulation with refractory bricks
• Specially shaped bricks, such as burner bricks, observation hole bricks,
chimney cover bricks or defoamer blocks.
The channel blocks and cover plates are processed and pre-assembled. The raw material base is zircon mullite, corundum, mullite or andalusite, manufactured in one of the most modern semi-automatic production lines with vibration technology.
• Basin for glass processing
The basin consists of the following parts that we supply:
• Basin cover bricks
• Basin burner bricks
• Basin insulation set
• Cement and insulation compounds
• Drip rings made of vacuum-formed products
• Hot gas filtration – FILTRATH®
Removing dust from particulate contaminated exhaust gases early enough at high temperatures is a requirement that makes sense not only from an economic point of view, but also from an ecological point of view. While synthetic fabric filters reach their performance limit at around 260°C, ceramic filter elements allow exhaust gases to be filtered up to 1000°C. Uneconomical cooling of the exhaust gases exclusively for the purposes of filtering is eliminated.
RATH offers hot gas filter cartridges for exhaust gas temperatures up to 1000°C in lengths up to 6 meters, in bolted individual segments for better installation and with various collar systems.
