Preparation of glass batches

The key to quality glass: a homogeneous batch.

Glass batches consist of many individual components which in some cases differ considerably in terms of their

  • Ratio in the formula,
  • Bulk density or specific density,
  • Particle size distribution,
  • Grain form
  • Solubility and wetting characteristics
  • Tendency to form agglomerates.

The main function of the mixing machine is to produce a batch of optimum homogeneity and lowest possible demixing tendency.
Eirich intensive mixers are high performance machines adapted to the specific requirements of the glass industry.
