Quartz is a unique type of glass because of its high purity level of SiO2. Its mechanical, electrical, thermal, chemical and optical properties make it extremely useful for various applications in industries such as semiconductor, optical fiber, chemical, steel, electrical heater manufacturing, water purification, manufacturing of special lamps and in research labs.
IRUV Tech offers clear, translucent or opaque quartz glass products, which are produced with different production techniques, raw materials, synthetic or natural quartz sand with different purity levels.
One Step production method: This is the most common method used to produce quartz glass in a continuous process. The quartz sand is melted in a tungsten crucible that contains electrical heating elements; the fused material flows down from the crucible through a bottom mould where it is shaped into tubes, plates and rods.
Oxygen hydrogen flame fusion production method: The fusion process occurs through a hydrogen/oxygen (H2/O2) flame. The raw material is heated up through a H2/O2 flame until it melts. In this way, we obtain a lingot, which can be shaped into tubes, rods, disks, plates.
Electric vacuum two-step fusion method: The first production step consists in a quartz glass lingot that is obtained through an electrical vacuum fusion furnace; then it is fused again through an induction furnace to become tubes, rods and plates.
Electric cylinder fusion method: The fusion process occurs into a mould represented by a cylinder. One electrical heating is placed in the middle of the cylinder, while the others externally all around. The particularity of this process consists in the rotation of the mould around its axis during the fusion of the quartz sand: in this way the melted quartz fixes on the inner wall of the wall by centrifugal acceleration. This technology allows obtaining large diameter quartz glass tubes with big thickness.
