Product Description

General Description:

Material: Quartz is a crystalline form of silicon dioxide (SiO2). Quartz tubes and rods are primarily composed of high-purity quartz, typically 99.9% or higher. The high purity ensures minimal impurities that could affect the optical and thermal properties of the material. This gives them excellent thermal stability, and transparency to a wide range of wavelengths, making quartz tubes and rods highly versatile in various industries.

Manufacturing Process: Quartz tubes and rods are typically manufactured using the hydrothermal fusion process or the flame fusion (verneuil) process.

    • Hydrothermal fusion: In this process, crushed quartz crystals are placed in a high-temperature autoclave under high pressure and temperature conditions. The quartz particles fuse together to form a solid quartz ingot. The ingot is then further processed into tubes or rods by cutting, grinding, and polishing.
    • Flame fusion (verneuil) process: In this process, a flame is used to melt quartz powder or silica sand. The molten material is then drawn upwards to form a quartz tube or rod as it cools and solidifies.

Dimensions: Quartz tubes are hollow cylindrical structures with varying inner and outer diameters, wall thicknesses, and lengths. Quartz rods, on the other hand, are solid cylindrical structures with uniform diameters and lengths. The dimensions of quartz tubes and rods can be customized according to specific requirements.

Quartz tubes and rods can be fabricated with various end finishes, such as fire-polished ends, flanges, or ground ends, to facilitate connections and installations.

It’s important to note that the specific properties and dimensions of high temperature resistant quartz tubes and rods can vary based on the manufacturer and the intended application. Therefore, it’s advisable to consult the M-Kube team for detailed specifications and recommendations based on your specific needs.
