SmartMelter technology successfully supports Kioo Glass furnace repair

, Kioo Glass

Container glass manufacturer for East and Central Africa Kioo Glass has completed a planned major rebuild on one of its furnaces using PaneraTech’s SmartMelter technology.

Kioo was able to plan its scheduled rebuild timing more accurately because of SmartMelter monitoring.

When the furnace was drained, the conclusions in the SmartMelter report were confirmed.

A SmartMelter audit was performed on the furnace in March 2019, with support provided from the SmartMelter team both remotely and on site.

The audit was followed by a detailed report and presentation of the findings by the SmartMelter team.

The furnace was shut down on the 30th September 2019 following some delays.

However, the SmartMelter technology provided comfort in extending the lifetime of the furnace.

When the furnace was dismantled, the furnace condition was found to be consistent with the SmartMelter radar scan.

Yakup Bayram, CEO of PaneraTech, said: “We are pleased to find that SmartMelter is allowing glass manufacturers to make maintenance decisions with greater confidence.”
