Glass bends made from DURAN®
A durable and clean alternative for pneumatic conveying systems
SCHOTT offers high precision glass bends made from optimum quality DURAN® in a wide range of diameters with various centerline radii and bending angles between 45° and 90°. Owing to the high resistance of glass, these bends are especially suitable for the transportation of extremely abrasive material. As the glass bends deterioration is minimal, they can achieve a lifespan 10 times longer than that of stainless steel bends. For reliable protection against electrostatic discharge, it is necessary to provide all tubing with copper conductive tape. Resistance-free flow is ensured by accurately matching the inner diameter of the glass bends to the existing conveying systems. The transparency of the glass ensures simple monitoring of the material flowing through. Additionally glass is perfectly suited for the food industry due to its low abrasion and food grade properties.
High quality borosilicate glass is distinguished by its durability and its favorable price/benefit ratio.
