Hydrogen

A versatile gas for the glass industry

Hydrogen is used in glass manufacturing for atmosphere control to prevent unwanted reactions like oxidation. It is also used to improve efficiency in cutting, polishing, heat treating, and melting and softening applications.

Due to its Unique Properties, Hydrogen has Many Applications in Glass Manufacturing:

Cutting and Polishing

To supplement or replace air-fuel combustion applications to increase heat transfer and result in cutting or polishing glass more efficiently

Heat Treating

To supplement or replace air-fuel combustion applications for annealing, tempering, strengthening and toughening to increase heat transfer and result in heat treating glass more efficiently

Melting and Softening

To supplement or replace air-fuel combustion applications to increase heat transfer and result in melting or softening glass faster

Atmosphere Control

To prevent detrimental reactions such as the formation of glass defects and help protect the chambers/equipment where glass is formed
