A Full Convection Laminating Furnace Upgrade To Meet Growing Need For Complex Glass Products
The ProL-zone full convection laminating furnace upgrade is designed to be a quick and cost-efficient modification for existing laminating lines. The upgrade replaces damaged or outdated heating chambers.
The very concept of ProL-zone is based on reaching a production capacity balance with Low-E and clear glass. ProL-zone uses full convection technology, which does not differentiate between glass types or product modes. The convection system provides extremely even heat uniformity, giving consumers consistently superb glass quality and an up to 100 per cent capacity increase compared to traditional infrared heating. It is available as an upgrade for any laminating line brand. Glaston ProL technology takes the growing range of laminated glass applications into account, providing the freedom to choose from a variety of operation modes to customize glass sizes and shapes, widths and colours, including Low-E glass. “Compared with traditional infrared-based heating methods, the ProL convection solution makes it possible to process any glass type from clear to half-printed or coated glass with superb glass quality. Today’s glass types have more and more variety in the complexity of paintings and coatings bundled together. That is the challenge we are focusing on,” says Jussi Niemioja, Product Manager at Glaston. The unique ProL convection technology is based on an optimised heat spread, which ensures proper heat balance and guarantees the most efficient heat transfer for lamination. It also provides a high process speed, allowing increased throughput, along with an excellent pre-laminate quality with proper edge sealing. Operating the ProL line is easy and efficient. The state-of-the-art prepressing convection technology offers a great user experience in heating control. Sheet-by-sheet operation is possible for large sized laminates or continuous mode operation is available for small and medium sized glass.
