FC Series based heating chamber upgrade


Glaston FC-zone heating chamber upgrade with the latest iControl automation system is designed to be a quick and cost-efficient modification for your existing tempering line. The upgrade replaces damaged or outdated furnace chamber and control system instead of acquiring a complete new tempering line.

This upgrade replaces an existing heating chamber with the latest FC Series based chamber, quickly modernizing your furnace without purchasing a new line. The FC-zone heating chamber replacement has been developed in close cooperation with glass producers to respond to the most pressing needs in today’s flat tempering industry. FC-zone enables you to decrease energy costs and increase Low-E production.
