One of the primary reasons glass manufacturers choose Bowman lehrs is that they are designed and built to conserve energy.

The mineral and ceramic fiber insulation, stainless steel linings, internal belt return and uniform temperature distribution all contribute. In fact, contribute to a degree that many costomers report "zero energy consumption" in annealing lehr operations.

Based on your needs, Bowman annealing and decorating lehrs can be fired by gas, electricity, diesel oil, propane, butane, kerosene or dual fuels. The capacity for conversion can be built into lehrs. If fuel costs and supplies change, Bowman lehrs change right along with them.

Regardless of how you fire your Bowman lehr, energy savings equate to a rapid payback on investment.

 

ENERGY SAVINGS II

The cost of energy is a major component of the total cost of manufacturing glassware products. That is why glass producers worldwide have replaced their old lehrs with new, energy efficient Bowman lehrs.

By reducing their annual energy costs, these producers have realized a rapid payback on their investment.

Cases in point:

An 8-month payback for a producer of glass containers.

A 14-month payback for a producer of decorated glass products.

A 31-month payback for a producer of lightweight glass products

REGARDLESS OF HOW YOU HEAT A BOWMAN LEHR, THE RESULTANT ENERGY SAVINGS EQUATE TO A RAPID PAYBACK ON INVESTMENT.
