Updated worldwide glass market study 2019 available now for flat, container glass and tableware

We have updated our international studies on flat glass, container glass and tableware for 2019.

This unique software provides a global overview about glass producers and technical details. Easy to use and clear tables summarize information and data about glass makers such as: Glass types: flat glass, container glass, tableware, production capacities in regions and countries, number of furnaces, furnace types, year of construction, glass types and sub-types, products, project information, special news and downloads.

Further databases supplying demoscopic data and import and export data complete the market survey. Based on these data, prepare individual country profiles with information about local production capacities, local market sizes and expected demand in the future.

Products or Machinery

ZYAROCK® Tweels and Flat Arches

Benefits

  • Reduced engineering costs
  • Maintenance free operation
  • Easy installation even during hot repair
  • No preheating required
  • Corrosion resistance
  • Exceptional thermal shock resistance

ZYAROCK® Shadow Walls
Zesuvius Zyarock® Shadow walls are manufactured under strict controls to provide optimum ceramic physical properties for stability at ambient and through the highest heat-treating temperatures.

Benefits

  • Reduces CO2 emission
  • Energy saving
  • Lower maintenance cost
  • Improved sealing
  • High erosion resistance
  • Increased productivity
  • Reduced maintenance time

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 ross box.They support the glass with minimum thermal and chemical interaction.

Benefits

  • Non dusting
  • Fiber-free
  • Highly insulating, low density
  • Custom made parts
  • Fully machineable for easy use and rapid adjustment
  • Hazard free insulation

ZYALITETM Rolls
VESUVIUS ZYALITE TM 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.

Benefits

  • 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.

ZYAFOAM® insulating products
VESUVIUS ZYAFOAM® is a Fused Silica insulating foam that has been engineered as a dust-free and fiber-free insulating product for the lining of heated chambers.

Benefits

  • Non dusting
  • Fiber-free
  • Highly insulating, low density
  • Custom made parts
  • Fully machineable for easy use and rapid adjustment
  • Hazard free insulation

ZYAROCK® Melting Pots
VESUVIUS offers specially formulated Fused Silica ZYAROCK® Melting Pots for the melting of different glass types such as borosilicate, optical glass, colored glass, opal glass, crystal glass, electronic glass and other formulations.

Benefits

  • Ready to use product
  • No preheating or conditioning
  • Amorphous SiO² material structure provides excellent glass melt condition
  • Consistent material behavior throughout the industrial manufacturing process
  • Customized shapes
  • High purity composition
  • Proven comparable results vs. Fused Quartz
