It was quite hard for me to tell what it really was then I noticed the piece of info down there. I tried to zoom it out hoping to see what was written about it. Degelugn? What is it? The word is Swedish but even the translation crucible furnace seemed unfamiliar to me. I saw this at the Glass Museum we visited on our teachers’ trip in the late summer.
Since it’s a glass museum it’s obviously used to melt an object in a very hot temperature and then mould it to form a glass. It’s an old furnace and I presumed it’s not been used in a long time. There’s undoubtedly an advanced machine for glass production nowadays. Anyhow, it’s interesting to see old equipments that otherwise I couldn’t have a chance I would see now.
This thing must have a name but it looks like a machine to clean or break the bottles. Tell me if you know about it.
This one I can describe as the glass shaper or glass moulder. These machines are apparently old so we didn’t get a chance to see how they’d work. I could understand why they’re being kept to this day. It’s not easy to let go of the things of the past.
