Tetronics (International) Limited

Waste recovery for glass manufacturing - Glassware

Tetronics` twin torch system has been used continuously for the commercial production of high quality silica glass for optical applications since 1992. Tetronics’ unique twin torch technology allows a plasma arc to be created in space, which enables a falling stream of high quality silica powder to be melted at the junction of the two arcs to form an ingot of high optical quality silica glass. By using plasma as a clean and controllable heat source, the product has a high degree of integrity, because the absence of a natural gas flame means the resulting product is free from bubbles, contamination and other defects.
