Molybdenum components help to make the glass and glass products used every day. Moly’s high strength at the high glass melting temperature and its resistance to corrosion by molten glass make it the ideal material for this purpose. Melting glass with molybdenum Human beings’ use of glass predates historical records, going back to the days
. Molybdenum Electrodes Electrodes used in electric heating furnaces are of great importance in glass melting technology and feed alternating electric current into glass melts. Because the glass melt has ionic conductivity, the electrical resistance of glass melts causes Joule heating in the molten glass. Molybdenum electrodes for glass
Molybdenum makes creating and forming glass products easy. Molybdenum is an ideal choice for glass melting due to its durability in high temperatures. In a furnace, the strength and rigidity of molybdenum furnace electrodes allows the glass to form. From mirrors to windows, many people see glass products made with molybdenum electrodes every
As our input material, we use only the purest molybdenum oxide. In this way, we can be sure that our glass melting electrodes are free of any impurities. This prevents any discoloration or bubble formation. Thanks to a special forging process, the glass melting electrodes we manufacture possess a particularly smooth surface.
Glass melting electrodes must be able to tolerate aggressive glass melts and intensely high temperatures. To address these challenging conditions, PLANSEE offers molybdenum which proves to be an ideal material as it has high dimensional stability, excellent creep resistance, superior corrosion
In the glass melting furnace, molybdenum electrode surface current density in /cm2 was moderate, but when the furnace require a higher quality of glass and longer electrode life, should adopt a lower surface current density. Molybdenum electrode surface current density the highest should not be greater than 2A/cm2.
With the excellent characteristics of high strength , resistant to oxidation under high temperature, long life, well corrosion resistance and difficult to stain glass, these high pure molybdenum electrodes have been widely used in many fields such as daily-use glass, optical glass, insulation material and glass fiber, and received good reputes.
The high temperature strength and rigidity of molybdenum electrodes mixed with small quantities of zirconium oxide along with the inherent electrical properties of molybdenum give glass melting electrodes maximum operating efficiency during glass melting operations in a furnace. Molybdenum glass melting electrodes must have % purity levels
To overcome this major drawback of having SCR control directly controlling the molybdenum electrodes, DC elimination strategies were successfully introduced. Today, SCR controlled glass furnace boosting systems are fully accepted by the industry, providing high precision, high performing and maintenance free solid-state technology.
. Starck’s glass melting electrodes (GME) are manufactured from pure molybdenum and supplied to customer requirements by forging and machining. Structure . Glass melting electrodes will normally be shipped as stress relieved. Material can be supplied in the re-crystallized condition upon request.
Molybdenum from Plansee is the right material for these challenging Home Products Components Furnace construction Glass production Glass melting electrodes Excellent corrosion resistance; Good electrical and thermal conductivity We produce our molybdenum glass melting electrodes ourselves – from the
11. . Molybdenum Electrodes Tested in the Laboratory Furnace . .. Molybdenums high melting point makes it an excellent candidate for a range of melting
The glass industry is a major consumer of metallic molybdenum. sufficient tensile strenght at the melting temperatures of glass and basalt;; good heat electrodes are used in electric furnaces to smelt container and flat glass,
GLASS. Molybdenums high melting point, resistance to sagging at glass bath temperatures, high ideal material for furnace why molybdenum is a very good.
12 May 2017 Good machinability; Reduces detrimental glass discoloring; Superior helps customers recycle spent electrodes through its EB furnace.
