|ZYAROCK® Lehr and Lift-out Rollers
||Vesuvius Zyarock® Lehr and Lift-out Rollers are Fused Silica products dedicated to the Float Glass application. The quality of the Fused Silica rollers takes full advantage of the very low reactivity with tin oxide at low temperature typically found in the dross box.They support the glass with minimum thermal and chemical interaction.
|VESUVIUS ZYALITE™ Rolls are constructed from highly compressed ceramic fibers which provides a very durable conveying surface virtually resistant to transfer of material to the roll surface or back the surface of the glass. This technology is used for the production of active matrix glass for LCD applications but also in rolled and float glass annealing lehr, and for the vertical draw process.
- Resistant to build up (tin or sulfate derived compounds)
- Flatter and more uniformly annealed ribbon
- Eliminate lehr created optical distortion problems
- Excellent load bearing: 0.5 mm to 19 mm thick
- Dimensional stability and low thermal conductivity
- Very durable
|SMARTLY DRIVEN® Tempering Rollers
||Vesuvius Zyarock® Fused Silica Tempering Rollers are manufactured under strict controls to provide optimum ceramic physical properties for stability at ambient and through the highest heat-treating temperatures.
Vesuvius provides the finest surface finish, the tightest dimensional tolerances, and the best hot TIR in the market.
Our ZYAROCK® SMARTLY DRIVEN® Roller provides a "Green" solution by using an environmentally friendly end cap design.
