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.

Whether you call it effervescent, fizzy, or sparkling, carbonated water is making a comeback as a beverage. Aside from quenching thirst, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have discovered a new use for these "bubbly" concoctions that will have major impact on the manufacturer of the world's thinnest, flattest, and one most useful materials -- graphene.
As graphene's popularity grows as an advanced "wonder" material, the speed and quality at which it can be manufactured will be paramount. With that in mind,...
Physicists at the University of Bonn have managed to create optical hollows and more complex patterns into which the light of a Bose-Einstein condensate flows. The creation of such highly low-loss structures for light is a prerequisite for complex light circuits, such as for quantum information processing for a new generation of computers. The researchers are now presenting their results in the journal Nature Photonics.
Light particles (photons) occur as tiny, indivisible portions. Many thousands of these light portions can be merged to form a single super-photon if they are...
For the first time, scientists have shown that circular RNA is linked to brain function. When a RNA molecule called Cdr1as was deleted from the genome of mice, the animals had problems filtering out unnecessary information – like patients suffering from neuropsychiatric disorders.
While hundreds of circular RNAs (circRNAs) are abundant in mammalian brains, one big question has remained unanswered: What are they actually good for? In the...
An experimental small satellite has successfully collected and delivered data on a key measurement for predicting changes in Earth's climate.
The Radiometer Assessment using Vertically Aligned Nanotubes (RAVAN) CubeSat was launched into low-Earth orbit on Nov. 11, 2016, in order to test new...
A study led by scientists of the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) at the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science in Hamburg presents evidence of the coexistence of superconductivity and “charge-density-waves” in compounds of the poorly-studied family of bismuthates. This observation opens up new perspectives for a deeper understanding of the phenomenon of high-temperature superconductivity, a topic which is at the core of condensed matter research since more than 30 years. The paper by Nicoletti et al has been published in the PNAS.
Since the beginning of the 20th century, superconductivity had been observed in some metals at temperatures only a few degrees above the absolute zero (minus...
