The 50 cu ft (1.4 m3) capacity Rotary Glass Batcher (main body behind drive chain), receives ingredients from the hopper chute above.
The drive chain rotates the Glass Batcher on external trunnion rings located at both ends.
Blended ingredients discharged from the Glass Batcher are conveyed to the furnace.
Silos store the raw materials to be mixed.
From the furnace, sodium silicate glass is filled into molds to make clear bottles and jars.
