Worlds Biggest Furnace

Worlds Biggest Furnace

Dynamiq Engineering recently completed the seismic analysis and design of three oil-filled transformers developed by a major UK Transformer Manufacturer to power the world’s biggest all-electric, high efficiency glass smelting furnace.  The furnace, commissioned by the Cameron Family Glass Packaging facility in Kalama, Washington State, USA, is the biggest of its type ever manufactured.

The 250T/day furnace has a thermal efficiency of up to 85% and can be used for flint and coloured container glass production, flaconnage, tableware, fluoride opal, borosilicate and crystal glasses, lighting products, tubing, technical glasses and special products.

Dynamiq provided specialist seismic analysis and qualification services to verify that the mechanical and structural design of the transformer systems were of sufficient integrity to safely withstand the maximum considered earthquake loading specified in ASCE 7-05, Chapter 13.
