Quartz special products
Working closely with leading manufacturers of quartz glass products, in addition to the standard type of quartz products like: pipes, rods, plates or blocks, we can also provide special products, unusual, partly standardized or according to customer requirements.
Wide range of special quartz glass products can be divided into categories presented below:
Sometimes it is necessary to use pipes with a rounded or oval profile. Depending on needs, they may be made of various types of quartz glasses (quartz glasses types are described here).
Pipes of this type are produced on a specific customer order. The size can be adjusted to the needs of the customer.
When dimensioning flat and oval tubes, in addition to specifying the shape and length ordered, you must also specify the width and height of the shape and wall thickness (see figure at right).
Sometimes it is necessary to use pipes with a rectangular or square profile. Depending on needs, they may be made of various types of quartz glass (quartz glasses types are described here). Standard dimensions of pipes with square and rectangular profile are given in the tables below.
Standard dimensions of rectangular tubes
Standard dimensions of square tubes
Sometimes it is necessary to use tubes or rods with special profiles. Depending on needs, they may be made of various types of quartz glasses (quartz glasses types described here).
Usually the dimensions of profiles (a,b) are within the range of from 1 mm to 20 mm, wherein the ratio of width to height (b/a) is in the range of 1 to 10.
Is possible to make a number of connected together thin tubes (capillaries). Depending on needs, they may be made of various types of quartz glasses (quartz glasses types are described here).
Typically connects up to four capillaries with internal diameters from 0,4 mm to 2 mm and an outer diameter of 0,5 mm to 30 mm. If you need a different size or a different number of capillaries - please contact us.
A frit is defined as a porous filter composed of bonded grains of quartz glass. Frits are manufactured from the same high purity raw material as our tubing and rod, which results in frits (disks) of high purity, chemically inert.
Some applications of fritted discs include filtration of liquids or corrosive gas, heat diffusion, flow regulation, and chemically inert and high purity applications.
Choosing the correct porosity is key for success in working with glass filters. These frits vary in porosity according to grades that are expressed as 00, 0, 1, 2, 3, and 4. The table below shows the various fields of application for each grade of porosity. The pore size indicates the the largest pore in the disc, as well as the the diameter of the smallest particle retained during filtration.

Fused quartz wool has the same properties as pure quartz glass. The fibers are non-flammable and incombustible. The fibers maintain their usable mechanical properties up to 1050 °C. Fused quartz wool is available in the following forms:
- wool felts
Coarse 9µm Nominal Wool
Bulk Wool consists of woven basic fibers between 5µm and 15µm. The arrangement of the fibers gives the wool its curly appearance, which prevents compression of the material and improves the desired insulating qualities. The fibers are flexible and have excellent torsion and bending resistance. Standard specifications are:
Fine 4µm Nominal WoolFine Wool consists of woven basic fibers between 1.5µm and 7µm. This product was developed to meet severe technical specifications required by markets that demand a larger specific area. Therefore, this wool offers more efficient thermal conductivity than our standard bulk wool.
Standard packing: 10 g or ca. 250 g
A Felt is quartz wool that has been impregnated with a starch binder to provide a stable sheet that can be handled, cut or fabricated to exact sizes. The binder can be removed by heating the Felt to 482 °C (900 °F) for 1 hour, or 250 °C (500 °F) for 24 hours. Binder content on the Felt is 4% - 5% by weight. Standard specifications are:
Thickness: 5 mm (0,2 in)
Other sizes are available upon request. Maximum size is 3000 mm x 1000 mm x 5 mm.
