Tin Oxide Blocks

Glassworks manufacture all types of connector system for the Block electrodes and can advise of the most suitable for the relevant application. All connectors are individually matches to each electrode based on tolerances in order to achieve the best possible electrical connection.

Connector types for block type electrodes

include the Linear Plug, Lateral Plug, Metallic plug, back face and silver rod connectors.

The position of the electrodes, the current density applied and the connector type are all critical factors in obtaining best results.

Glass applications for block type electrodes

Lead Crystal Glass

Optical and ophthalmic Glasses

TFT and PDP Glass

Specialty Glasses

Forehearths and refiners.

Conventional Boosting

Suitable to temperatures in excess of 1780 degrees C (* depending on connecting method)

Every electrode is individually made, numbered and tested and inspected to the highest quality specifications prior to approval and eventual dispatch. Glassworks stores all quality control data and is available to customers as required.
