Glass Melting Electrodes
Glass melting electrodes, a high-volume product produced by T & D Materials, provide outstanding strength and resistance to creep. Our manufacturing controls also ensure excellent resistance to chemical erosion, uniform electrical properties, and smooth finished surface and connecting threads for easy assembly and continuous feeding in your glass operation.
Machine finished molybdenum electrodes from T & D Materials provide glass manufacturers with every practical benefit of electric glass melting. they are available with standard, stepped or tapered threads for easy assembly. With our 5500 Ton Extrusion Press, we produce the largest diameters and the longest lengths available anywhere.
Our glass melting electrodes meet or exceed all industry standards for efficient glass melting and electric boosted melting. The high-temperature strength and rigidity of molybdenum electrodes, plus the inherent outstanding electrical properties of molybdenum, provide maximum operating efficiency. The exceptional purity level of molybdenum electrodes (99.95% minimum) assures outstanding resistance to chemical erosion and degradation and minimizes detrimental glass discoloring.
Custom fabrication is available upon customer request.
