Development/float Glass

The late 50, United Kingdom declared to the world of flat glass Pilkington Glass company development of float process is successful, this is the original slot on forming process of a revolution. Time unit, float heat flow into "floating hurricane" swept across the world. Heavily diluting Pilkington patented in many countries in the world, but China took to Pilkington technique blocked. Western blockade Luoyang to realize that China float glass research, must take the road of self-reliance and independent innovation. In May 1971, the original state administration of building materials industry decided to float test conducted in the Luoyang float glass, glass experts all over the country gathered in Luoyang, Luoyang float glass workers more than war.

Float glass production is unprecedented for a new career in China, in the absence of any useful information, began experimental production encountered wave after wave of challenges. No Studio, building material specialists and vast numbers of scientific and technical personnel in the boiler room of the Luoyang float glass designs, sketch a construction. No large lathe equipment, Luoyang float glass fitters who use the Tinker tinkering way, processing 25 m small tin bath on site. Encountered one of the most important challenges in production are: high temperature glass of water through a tin bath likely to clot, resulting in uneven glass. Sometimes the glass of water splashing about in the tin bath, workers everywhere are injured. Luoyang float glass technician after a long thinking, tin bath in the upper design of electrical heating equipment, glass of water through a tin bath easily solves the problem of condensation. They then developed the glass edge roller, carefully designed speed, angle, depth, and forming part of the process by modifying the shape, glass is wider, lower and more flat, quality is getting higher. On September 23, 1971, the Luoyang float glass the cadres and workers, in the Department of leadership, under the guidance of experts, units of the full cooperation of the brothers, heal for 3 months, and finally succeeded in building the first float glass production line, to produce the first float glass in China. Mechanical strength, smoothness and transparency are better than the other flat glass. Luoyang float glass with a superhuman intelligence and hard work, a float of the Chinese dream.
