Vortex Plus – Convection with crosswise profiling

Convection control system for flat tempering furnaces


Three reasons for choosing Vortex Plus

1.

High Low-E capability

2.

High optical quality

3.

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.
