English term or phrase: glass furnace
Ich bin auf der Suche nach dem Fachausdruck für "glass furnace". Glasofen?

Saint-Avold’s glass furnace is at the end of its lifetime. It will be re-built and extended by 25% in April and May 2008 during a 6 weeks production stop. The refractories will be changed on furnace and canal. Furnace’s floor space will be extended from 30 to 35 m2. Oven will be also extended, and our 4 fibrazing machines will be replaced by 6. This project is also an opportunity to improve the process and productivity, to strengthen Saint-Avold plant’s position on French market.

Glasschmelzofen / Glasofen
Explanation:
Beide Begriffe werden verwendet, wobei ich "Glasschmelzofen" bevorzugen würde.

Siehe Beispiele:

http://darwin.bth.rwth-aachen.de/opus/volltexte/2003/691/
"In Kapitel 2 wird der Glasschmelzofen als Ganzes mit seinen Untereinheiten und Aggregaten beschrieben."
"Chapter 2 will describe the glass furnace in its entirety with its subunits and aggregates."

agree  Hans G. Liepert: obwohl die Industrie (zB PPG in einem Patent) den heissen Ofen eher als Glasofen bezeichnet (schon wegen der Kürze)
