    Moisturizing glass batch in furnace batch charger

    Do you have any experience with final mositurizing of batch just before charging it to furnace.

    We are interested in moisturizing the batch for container glass just before the furnace batch charger.The reason being the batch gets dry on the way, and we do not want to add more water in the mixer.

    Capacity of batch charger 15 T/hr
    The moisture required is 3,5%

    The batch in furnace hopper is 2% moist.

    The amount of cullet amongst the raw materials is 5-10 %
    The cullet size is usually 1-2cm. However amongst the cullet there is about 10% very fine cullet dust. Rarely there are big particles 6 cm.

    We would like to receive comments on
    -most appropriate method to be used,
    -equipment suppliers,
    -results obtained if you have similar experience
    in terms of homogeneity of mix, dust problem, effects on the furnace,

    Thank you for your interest
