| It is common to run a glass melting
furnace non-stop for more than 10 years.
Therefore, it is important to choose a refractory for the furnace that will generate
high-quality glass over a long period.
For parts in the glass furnace that are in contact with melting glass or the superstructure
of the melter, it is common to apply Fused cast refractories that are corrosion-proof and do not cause glass defects.
Alternatively, for melter crowns, furnace bottoms, superstructure of the forehearth
and feeder parts, bonded refractories (Silica
bricks, Sillimanite bricks, etc.), or monolithic
refractories (mortar/tamping materials of Zircon-Alumina, etc) are commonly
For regenerator checkers and housing, monolithic
refractories (Magnesia bricks, basic bricks, etc) are widely used.
