Quartz Scientific manufactures custom clear fused quartz products designed for a wide range of applications. In this project we manufactured a custom fused quartz furnace end cap for a customer’s furnace tube. The end cap was turned on our glass blowing lathe, which also utilized torches to obtain the final contour, and to meet the required ±1mm tolerances. The final dimensions of 5” in length and 7” in diameter were verified with dimensional and visual inspection prior to glazing.
End caps such as these are used in a wide variety of sizes, configurations, and applications. This end cap was used by a semiconductor component manufacturer in Indiana.
