To make glass many materials are used such as sand, soda ash, limestone, and borax. These are a few of the many raw materials used for making glass. The compositions of all of these materials are dry powders which look much alike, but are capable of producing different results. The materials are brought to the glass plant in railroad cars and are stored in large silos. The next steps are to carefully weigh and then mechanically mixed in the proper proportions. After this the glass maker adds cullet which is either recycled glass or waste glass from a previous melt of the same kind of glass. By adding this product, cullet the amount of heat needed to melt the new batch is reduced. After mixing with the cullet the batch goes to the melting units in batch cars, in hoppers, or on conveyor belts. There is two different ways of melting the product to make glass. The first is refractory pots which are primarily used to make small quantities of optical glass; art glass and specialty glass. The Large furnaces which many of you have seen on TV are used to make larger quantities of glass. Raw materials are fed into the loading end as rapidly as molten glass is removed from the working end. The shaping glass is completed in four different ways they are blowing, pressing, drawing, and casting. When the shaping process is completed a annealing process is used to restore the strength of the glass. Tempering and other finishing techniques may also be used to further strengthen the glass.
