Did you know that tempering helps with the production of glass bottles and ampoules for the pharmaceutical industry?

06.09.2016

Cleanliness and professional processing are of utmost importance when it comes to production in the pharmaceutical industry. The special shape of glass bottles or ampoules for medication and tablets makes their manufacture something of a challenge.

The glass is formed under heat, which means there are residual thermal stresses and the glass is more likely to crack. For this reason, these thermal stresses must be removed before they are put into use. Stress relief is achieved by tempering.

Innovative MAX infrared ovens from Heraeus Noblelight support this process with convincing results.

Industrial infrared heating oven

Industrial infrared heating oven

The MAX ovens combine infrared radiation with convection and optimal reflection. Only quartz glass materials including QRC® nano-reflectors are used inside the oven.

From simulation to solution
The oven size can be adjusted to the product and the process. Numerical simulation in the design phase makes the heat process especially energy-efficient. To achieve a maximum product temperature of 900°C, a MAX oven needs less than ten minutes, and it can cool down in less than ten minutes as well. This enables rapid product changes. The MAX oven can be used for both batch and continuous operation.

MAX oven - especially energy-efficient
Tests show that in an oven with a heated length of 700 mm and a chamber cross-section of 150 x 150 mm the maximal emitter temperature is achieved within less than one minute. In continuous operation at 900°C holding temperature, the necessary holding power is just about 3 kW, due to the excellent energy efficiency.

Your advantages

  • High purity for sensitive products
  • Thermal shock resistance for fast processes
  • Best optical properties
  • Excellent mechanical stability even at very high temperatures
  • Very good processability for flexible oven dimensions
  • Very good homogeneity of the temperature field due to diffuse reflection

A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.

Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...

Im Focus: Quantum Particles Form Droplets

In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.

“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...

Im Focus: MADMAX: Max Planck Institute for Physics takes up axion research

The Max Planck Institute for Physics (MPP) is opening up a new research field. A workshop from November 21 - 22, 2016 will mark the start of activities for an innovative axion experiment. Axions are still only purely hypothetical particles. Their detection could solve two fundamental problems in particle physics: What dark matter consists of and why it has not yet been possible to directly observe a CP violation for the strong interaction.

The “MADMAX” project is the MPP’s commitment to axion research. Axions are so far only a theoretical prediction and are difficult to detect: on the one hand,...
