in glass industry the different types of products need different furnace design. The furnace can be a recuperative, a regenerative or an oxy fuel one in terms of the combustion system used. There are ten refractory types which are commonly used in the glass furnaces. The refractories used in glass furnaces are in contact with the glass, the superstructure, the crown and the regenerator materials and which is why they are constrained to chemical, physical, as well as thermal effects.
