(FR) APPAREIL MODULAIRE DE DISTRIBUTION DE VERRE FONDU
Abstract
(EN)
Disclosed herein are modular molten glass delivery apparatuses and glass manufacturing apparatuses including the same. A module of a modular molten glass delivery apparatus includes a lower carriage comprising a plurality of lower carriage rollers. An upper rail system is supported on the lower carriage. The upper rail system includes upper support rails oriented at an elevation angle α greater than 0 degrees relative to horizontal. The module further includes an upper carriage. The upper carriage includes a base plate oriented at an elevation angle β greater than 0 degrees relative to horizontal and a plurality of upper carriage rollers engaged with the upper support rails of the upper rail system to facilitate translation of the upper carriage on the upper rail system. A support frame is coupled to the base plate and a molten glass delivery conduit assembly is supported on the base plate within the support frame.

L'invention concerne des appareils modulaires de distribution de verre fondu et des appareils de fabrication de verre les comprenant. Un module d'un appareil modulaire de distribution de verre fondu comprend un chariot inférieur comprenant une pluralité de galets de chariot inférieur. Un système de rails supérieurs est supporté sur le chariot inférieur. Le système de rails supérieurs comprend des rails de support supérieurs orientés selon un angle d'élévation α supérieur à 0 degré par rapport à l'horizontale. Le module comprend en outre un chariot supérieur. Le chariot supérieur comprend une plaque de base orientée selon un angle d'élévation β supérieur à 0 degré par rapport à l'horizontale et une pluralité de galets de chariot supérieur en prise avec les rails de support supérieurs du système de rails supérieurs pour faciliter la translation du chariot supérieur sur le système de rails supérieurs. Un cadre de support est accouplé à la plaque de base et un ensemble conduit de distribution de verre fondu est supporté sur la plaque de base à l'intérieur du cadre de support.
