Glasstech FCH-S technology has become the definitive method for heating glass that does not easily respond to electric radiant heat. The system is ideal for heat-treating active, high light transmission (low-iron) smooth or textured cover panels, rigid back panels and clear glass for PV panels. With full convection heating, FCH-S requires less facility space for productivity equivalent to electric radiant heaters. In addition, FCH-S offers an energy cost-saving solution alternative in locales where natural gas is a more attractive fuel supply.
Glasstech, Inc., is the world's leading manufacturer of glass bending and tempering technology for the solar, automotive and architectural glass markets.
