Exploratory Award

Proposal number EXAW-1999-01005

AcronymGlasspot

Proposal titleA novel approach to glass containment in full-sizepot furnaces.

AbstractThe project will promote improvements in efficiency, quality and safe working practice in

the predominantly SME, European hand-made glass industry, through the adoption of

innovation in pot furnace technology. The project will deliver a pot that avoids the need for

the current seven-day tempering process prior to installation. It will also deliver an

effective coating material and coating process for the pot which will improve glass quality

and eliminate the potentially harmful practice of manually applying molten glass coatings

to the pot surface at elevated temperatures. The new technology based on advanced

materials will improve the efficiency of pot furnaces and thereby increase the yield of

"first quality" glass per pot and more efficient use of resources. The project will thereby

promote modernisation of the industry and contribution to sustainable development.
