Abstract
The glass tank furnace is one of the main features of the glass industry in the organised sector. Different types of refractories are used in the furnaces, depending upon the glass composition, end-product and the furnace construction design. The application and performance of the right type of refractories not only prolong the compaign life of the furnace but also influence a rapid and homogeneous melting. Selection of refractories for the glass furnace thus becomes of prior importance also from the point of energy conservation and cost effectiveness of ,the process. In the present paper, the major types of refractories that are being used for the manufacture of glass and glassware utilizing tank furnace with regenerator system have been taken into consideration. The paper is the outcome of an intensive interaction with the glass and refractories manufacturers. Part I deals with the regenerator chequer system.
