Abstract: front page image
(EN)Disclosed is an apparatus and method of making molten glass. The apparatus includes a glass former having a slot orifice design to deliver a glass ribbon. The slot orifice design can include a transition section, a slot extension, and external structural reinforcements. In some embodiments, the orifice opening distance of the slot extension varies along the width of the orifice. In some embodiments, the orifice has an orifice opening distance that is smaller at the center of the slot extension than at the edges of the slot extension, which limits glass flow at the center of the slot extension. Also disclosed is a method of making glass using the disclosed apparatus.
(FR)La présente invention concerne un appareil et un procédé de fabrication de verre fondu. L'appareil comprend un dispositif de formation de verre présentant une conception d'orifice en fente pour distribuer un ruban de verre. La conception de l'orifice en fente peut comprendre une section de transition, une extension de fente et des renforts structuraux externes. Selon certains modes de réalisation, la distance d'ouverture de l'orifice de l'extension de fente varie suivant la largeur de l'orifice. Selon certains modes de réalisation, l'orifice présente une distance d'ouverture d'orifice qui est plus petite au centre de l'extension de fente qu'au niveau des bords de l'extension de fente, ce qui limite le flux de verre au centre de l'extension de fente. L'invention concerne également un procédé de fabrication de verre à l'aide dudit l’appareil.
