“We are very satisfied with the quality of our new RC Series tempering line and the glass it produces. The Vortex Pro convection control system is excellent. The furnace made by Glaston China is just as well manufactured as the previous furnace we bought from Glaston’s factory in Finland,” says Frank Calderón Gómez, Managing Director at Full Glass in Lima, Peru.
