Oscillating Chargers (OBC)
Glassworks Hounsell was the first company to introduce the OBC onto an end fired furnace and to date we have supplied over 1150 units worldwide.

Static Chargers
Our Static Chargers are well suited to some of the more challenging operating conditions and are capable of effectively sealing a `doghouse`.

X/Y and Boom Chargers
The X/Y and Boom chargers available from Glassworks Hounsell are mainly bespoke to meet our customer’s specific requirements including both the electrics and mechanics of this equipment so to find out more please visit our website.

Aqua Sprays/Water Mixers
It is well known in the industry that inconsistencies in the moisture content and dust dispersal within the furnace can dramatically affect the quality of the glass being manufactured.

To overcome this problem Glassworks Hounsell has developed a range of Aqua Sprays and Water Mixers which can be manufactured in accordance with our customers particular needs.

Letterbox Charger
Every single Letterbox Charger manufactured by Glassworks Hounsell is designed and manufactured to your exact requirements.

All are built to meet the ISO9001:2008 Standards.

Glass Blowing Equipment
For Glass Blowing we are able to supply Blowing Irons, Punty Irons and a range of tools well suited for this specific purpose.

In this area too we can provide a complete bespoke manufacturing service to include materials, length, types of handle and diameters so for further details please do not hesitate to get in touch.
