Glass Making

1
Blend
Glass packaging is produced from the use of natural raw materials.
% 65 Silica Sand
% 22 Soda
% 14 Dolomite
% 10 Limestone
% 8 Feldspar
% 1 Other Auxiliary Raw Materials
Glass Cullet
In the proportions mentioned above, the natural raw materials are mixed with the help of mixers and the blend is prepared. The prepared blend is sent to the furnaces for melting.

Furnace
The mixture of blend and glass cullet is heated up to 1550 ° C and melted in natural gas and electric Furnaces which are made of refractory materials. The melted glass is cooled and sent to the forming machines at about 1200 ° C.

Forming (NNPB Process)
The melted glass from the furnace is completed in the molds produced according to the previous bottle shapes by using one of the techniques such as BB (Blow-Blow), PB (Press-Blow) and NNPB (Narrow Neck Pres-Blow). The glass packaging from the molds is transferred to the Annealing Furnace through the Hot Coating Unit at 600 ° C.

Hot Coating and Annealing Furnace

Hot coating process is applied to glass packaging immediately after the forming machines. The purpose of this process is to seal the microfractures in the bottles and to form a primer for the Cold Coating process to be applied after the annealing furnace.

During forming, glass packages are loaded with unwanted stresses that reduce their strength by sudden and uncontrolled cooling. The annealing furnaces are used so that the resulting stresses (pressure) can be removed by controlled cooling (annealing).

Cold Coating

Glass packages can be drawn by touching a glass as they travel along the lines. These scratches can affect strength in a negative way. In order to prevent these scratches, a cold coating liquid suitable for water-based food is applied which gives a sliding property to the contact areas on the outer surface of the glass packages.

Controls
We have a three-stage check.

1- Glass packaging with cold coating liquid is subjected to various controls and tests (visual inspection, gauge control, pressure and impact control) by a sampling method.

2- All of the unshaped products pass through the latest technology for splitting, checking the head, bottom, side surface, crack, mouth seal and narrow neck.

3- By taking samples from products passing through fault splitting machines, the latest visual checks are carried out by both operators and online machines, and after the approval of the quality department, they are sent to the packaging.

Correction of the error is ensured by instantly reporting the detected faults to the forming area. At the same time, defective glass packaging is recycled by thrown back into the furnace in order to feed the furnace again

Packaging
Glass packaging products that approved by Quality Control are packed by packaging machines without human touch and delivered to the store with the help of conveyors and so that they are ready to ship.

Storage
The glass packaging products which come from the production are transported while being protected in our specially designed stores to delivered safely to our customers.
