Experience delivers solutions for industrial glassmakers
Officially branded by 2015, Falorni Tech develops turnkey and/or standalone solutions for the container, tableware,
glass wool and other industrial sectors. “We have the capability to approach any project involving glassy materials and decided to fully focus a division within the company to serve this market” Roberta Stissi explains. Falorni’s approach reflects what John F Kennedy once said: “The Chinese use two brush strokes to write the word ‘crisis’. One brush stroke stands for danger and the other for opportunity.” As a result of the economic downturn, many glass factories in Tuscany and throughout Italy closed or were acquired by multi-national groups. It was at this time that Falorni started to explore opportunities for its technology in Eastern Europe and the Middle East and to serve the interests of industrialscale glassmakers. This modified approach also embraced an expansion of activities beyond the supply of glass melting installations to include complete turnkey projects, three of which have been delivered so far. A network of sales agents is maintained throughout the world, including representatives in the Middle East (including Iran), China, Thailand, Taiwan, the Baltic Republics, Russia, Mexico and South America. This network is expected to grow as opportunities emerge.
The expertise available from the Falorni Tech division embraces complete batch plants, glass melting furnaces (regenerative, recuperative and oxy-fuel), together with complete distributors and forehearths, including colouring sections. The full range of ancillary furnace equipment offered includes combustion systems, burners, reversal valves, exhaust systems, batch charging solutions, glass level controllers, recuperators and boosting systems etc. High efficiency plants and low NOx solutions can be provided to meet environmental restrictions, while entire glass container or tableware facilities can be engineered, with complete production lines and auxiliary equipment…
