Furnace materials
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 used.

For regenerator checkers and housing, monolithic refractories (Magnesia bricks, basic bricks, etc) are widely used.
