Mathematical modeling is used to perform a computational and theoretical study of thermal processes occurring in regenerative heat-exchangers of glass furnaces. Recommendations for increasing the efficiency and operating life of the heat-exchangers of this type are developed on the basis of the obtained data. These recommendations can be used in designing new glass furnaces as well as in modernizing currently operating melting complexes in the glass industry.
