Compressed Helium Gas & Liquid Helium

Atmosphere Control - Purging, Blanketing, Shielding

Industrial gases can be used to prevent reactions that are detrimental to the glass forming process. For example, inerting the tin bath during float glass manufacturing with nitrogen/hydrogen blends can help prevent the formation of glass defects and protect the chambers/equipment in which the glass is formed. Our glass specialists can help with equipment and engineering design services from preliminary design through ongoing operations.

Helium

Helium is used to flood the surface of glass to impact characteristics. After fibre-optic glass is drawn into fine strands, it is shielded with helium while the cladding is applied in order to prevent the newly formed glass surface from reacting with the contaminants present in ambient air.
