Improving the durability of furnaces used for glass melting


The iX challenge competition, delivered by KTN, is supporting Pilkington Technology Management Limited (PTML), part of NSG Group in reaching out to its network to identify innovative solutions that could lead to approaches across their business to deliver sustainable net zero manufacturing. Successful solution providers (industry or academia) to this challenge will be given a commercial opportunity to deliver their solution and receive support from PTML, KTN and the wider Innovate UK network. The Innovation Exchange programme is working alongside PTML to help them to identify innovative, robust and resilient materials for the refractory blocks in a gas/oil fired, electrically boosted, glass melting furnace.
