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
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.

University of Maryland researchers contribute to historic detection of gravitational waves and light created by event
On August 17, 2017, at 12:41:04 UTC, scientists made the first direct observation of a merger between two neutron stars--the dense, collapsed cores that remain...
Seven new papers describe the first-ever detection of light from a gravitational wave source. The event, caused by two neutron stars colliding and merging together, was dubbed GW170817 because it sent ripples through space-time that reached Earth on 2017 August 17. Around the world, hundreds of excited astronomers mobilized quickly and were able to observe the event using numerous telescopes, providing a wealth of new data.
Previous detections of gravitational waves have all involved the merger of two black holes, a feat that won the 2017 Nobel Prize in Physics earlier this month....
Material defects in end products can quickly result in failures in many areas of industry, and have a massive impact on the safe use of their products. This is why, in the field of quality assurance, intelligent, nondestructive sensor systems play a key role. They allow testing components and parts in a rapid and cost-efficient manner without destroying the actual product or changing its surface. Experts from the Fraunhofer IZFP in Saarbrücken will be presenting two exhibits at the Blechexpo in Stuttgart from 7–10 November 2017 that allow fast, reliable, and automated characterization of materials and detection of defects (Hall 5, Booth 5306).
When quality testing uses time-consuming destructive test methods, it can result in enormous costs due to damaging or destroying the products. And given that...
Using a new cooling technique MPQ scientists succeed at observing collisions in a dense beam of cold and slow dipolar molecules.
How do chemical reactions proceed at extremely low temperatures? The answer requires the investigation of molecular samples that are cold, dense, and slow at...
Scientists from the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics, using high precision laser spectroscopy of atomic hydrogen, confirm the surprisingly small value of the proton radius determined from muonic hydrogen.
It was one of the breakthroughs of the year 2010: Laser spectroscopy of muonic hydrogen resulted in a value for the proton charge radius that was significantly...
