Three reasons for choosing Vortex Plus
High Low-E capability
High optical quality
Ease of use with iControL automation
Remarkably precise convection profiling
Glaston Vortex Plus convection control system upgrade enables you to temper Low-E glass with your existing tempering line. The convection system ensures a uniform heat transfer across the glass pane. Convection nozzles are controlled in groups to allow crosswise profiling. Vortex Plus saves energy with precise convection profiling.
The upgrade is realized by adding convection nozzles and a valve terminal to the furnace. The Vortex Plus upgrade operates with Glaston’s latest iControL automation system.

“We’re the new kids on the block with our latest offering of digital ceramic printing on glass, bringing affordability to one-off glass pieces that can be tempered into a long-lasting masterpiece. It was all by chance that we met Dip-Tech at Glasstec in Dusseldorf in 2016. After 18 months, we’ve brought our business idea to fruition,” says Charlie Hill, owner of Washington Art Glass in Tyne and Wear, UK. “The key to our success has been an investment in Glaston’s RC Series tempering furnace for top-quality, flat glass results.”Read more
