Heat Strengthening System HS10/HS12

Excellent quality heat strengthened glass up to 10mm in thickness


Three reasons for choosing Glaston Heat Strengthening System HS10/HS12

1.

Enables heat strengthening of glass up to 12 mm

2.

More control over heat strengthening process

3.

More control over quenching parameters

Controlled heat strengthening


Glaston Heat Strengthening System HS10/HS12 has been developed to provide your machine with the heat strengthening capability to process glass in thicknesses 3–12 mm.

Heat strengthened glass is processed with much less pressure than tempered glass. The critical question in the manufacturing process how to create a sufficient stress level in the glass.

The Glaston Heat Strengthening System HS10/HS12 controls the cooling coefficient during the heat strengthening process. The strength and duration of the pressure wave is controlled automatically according to the set heat strengthening profile.

“I was very impressed at how quickly we were able to install the new ProL-zone upgrade on our existing lamination line – only 3.5 days – and I’ve been equally impressed with the high-quality output,” says Rob Carlson, Mechanical Engineer at Tristar Glass, Inc.’s Tulsa, Oklahoma facility. “Glaston’s convection technology has exceeded every expectation. The system really does work as well as they said it would – maybe even better!”

Enhancing its flat glass lamination line by replacing outdated components with new technology, Malaysia-based Crystal Safety Glass (CSG) turned an expensive problem into an unexpectedly positive experience. The move was not easy, but it helped bring the processor’s existing line back up to date with an impressive list of value-added features. For the plant operators, the upgrade lowered the cost of modernizing the existing line and provided less downtime, higher productivity and significant improvements in energy consumption.
