The wax emulsion forms a lubricating and protective coating on glass containers. Tegoglas® cold-end coatings provide long-lasting protection for both dry and wet filling processes. Using Tegoglas® cold end coatings will help improve scratch resistance and reduce glass fractures and scuffing during filling and transportation. A family of products Arkema makes a full line of polyethylene, oleic acid and stearate coatings to improve lubricity and scratch resistance.
CAMBRIDGE designs and engineers metal mesh conveyor belting and systems that are widely used in food and beverage processing and in the glass, ceramic and other industries.
The most universal belt on the market, DiaCrimp is ideal for almost any product, in almost any environment.
DiaCrimp is calendared only on the top surface of the spiral, maintaining full curvature on lower surface to better fit the crimp seat. A more secure fit eliminates lateral shifting and vibrations, enabling the belt to carry heavier loads. Accurate seating of the diagonally crimped rod also maximizes bearing area and stability. Reduced spiral movement improves tracking.
DiaCrimp wire is precisely shaped to provide the widest flat area possible on top, without increasing the width of the wire beyond that of conventional spirals. This yields a 25% increase in the conveying area with no loss of open area.
Available in a variety of rugged metals, these belts can handle on-belt processing of light and heavy loads, wet or dry, caustic or acid, from -100°F to +2,200°F. The extra surface area improves drive pulley contact, thereby reducing belt slippage, surging and vibration.
With its nearly perfect interface between the angled crimp seat and the diagonal angle of the spiral, a firmer, more stable seating is achieved. Better seating maximizes the bearing area and minimizes spiral movement for better tracking. By design, DiaCrimp matches perfectly the angle of the diagonal crimp with the inner curvature of the spiral for low-stress hinging, which assures longer belt life. It also results in approximately 60% less “wear-in” after a new belt is installed. (That so-called “wear-in” is actually a poorly designed belt wearing out as it stretches, seeking seating position.) Flat, thin spirals reduce belt weight, maximize drive pulley contact, and minimize stretching and distortion. DiaCrimp belts start smooth and last far longer.
Key industries: Baking, Glass
Key applications: Baking, Ceramic Coating, Fiberglass Curing, Glass Annealing
Various types of Round Wire Mesh belting are available, including but not limited to:
Balanced belting – an economical weave with high tensile strength and minimal tendency to track to either side of the drive pulley. These features make the balanced belt a most suitable belt for many applications.
Double-Balanced – consisting of pairs of interlaced right- and left-hand spirals, suitable for ambient medium- and high-temperature applications.
Compound Balance – this belt has right-and left-hand spirals fitted closely together for a smooth, dense weave. It is excellent for conveying very fine or small products, as well as unstable or topheavy items. The compound balanced belt is used extensively in baking cookies, crackers, and snack foods.
Gratex – similar to balanced belting except that the spirals are more closely wound, with a straight rod connector, producing a stronger, semi-closed mesh ideal for carrying small parts and heavy loads.
Duplex – a close mesh with a smooth carrying surface, most efficient for carrying small parts or parts that would be marked by a more open mesh. Woven in pairs of spirals, each pair is turned into the preceding pair and reinforced with a rod through the hinging point, Duplex belting has high strength.

Channel Blocks and Distributor Blocks
Channel blocks are manufactured in PSR-333. This is the same refractory composition as used for feeder expendable refractories and has shown itself to be a proven performer for long forehearth life in more than a thousand forehearths installed to date. Its low thermal conductivity inhibits corrosion at the channel joints and the absence of glassy phase eliminates it as a source of ‘cat-scratch’ cord. Distributor glass contact blocks are manufactured in PSR-993. This is an in-house development that offers fused-cast alumina refractory performance for a bonded refractory price. Containing 99.7% alumina PSR-993 is made entirely of alpha alumina and contains no glassy phase.

|HANDLING SOLUTIONS FOR GLASSMAKERS WORLD
Proper sweepout assemblies are essential to obtaining the best ware handling in the hot end. Dura Temp offers three generations of sweepout assemblies to achieve the correct combination of adaptability and rigidity necessary for any job. From the entirely adjustable Generation I design, to the completely fixed, solid Generation III design, Dura Temp's lightweight sweepout assemblies can be manufactured for single, double, triple, and quadruple gob configurations. Fundamental to the design of Dura Temp sweepout assemblies is the drop-on style pockets. Sweepout pockets that slide on and off the assemblies allow for a true “quick-change” system, whereby the pockets can be replaced with little or no downtime. In addition, drop-on pockets also allow for rapid changeover from one container diameter to another.
Some benefits that glassmakers experience by implementing Dura Temp sweepout assemblies include:
Metal Mount Pads (Fingers)
Numerous other straight and curved fingers are offered for customized arrangements in sweepout and transfer applications.
Lehr Stacker Bars
The products that Dura Temp offers for the lehr furnace area include lehr stacker bars, pocket assemblies, and several material options. Dura Temp's lehr stacker bar is a twin tube style that allows for the pockets to be adjusted and positioned as necessary. The unique tubular design of the bar allows for ventilation and virtually eliminates warping, resulting in enhanced bottle positioning.
Dura Temp offers two different styles of adjustable pockets for its lehr bar. The first style is a steel pocket that uses a retaining pin to hold two inserts of contact material in place. This pocket style utilizes the DT-10 carbon-fiber-carbon material or the new DT-60 carbon composite material that can withstand extremely high temperature. The second style is a pin-style form whereby the contact material is "dropped on" the adjustable pocket. This pocket style utilizes either solid DT-18 calcium silicate material or two pieces of DT-1 silicone composite material separated by a spacer.
In addition, Dura Temp also offers its universal lehr bar pocket. The design of the pocket allows it to be mounted to Dura Temp's twin tube style bars, unistrut bars, tube bars, as well as flat bars. It is constructed of cast steel for strength, yet its unique design gives it a similar weight to aluminum pockets. The pocket uses a retaining pin similar to Dura Temp's current design. However, the pocket can also incorporate a quick-change concept for the inserts.
Sheet Materials and Cut Parts
Dura Temp offers DT-80, one of its carbon-fiber-carbon materials, in sheet form. DT-80 is made using woven carbon fiber layers. Water-jet cutting and carbide tooling are recommended methods of machining for this material. Please contact us for sizes and availability.
Dura Temp’s DT-18 is a calcium-silicate hydrate material. This material is easily machined using standard tooling, and can be tapped. Flat stock sizes include cross sections up to 48” (1219.2mm) x 48” (1219.2mm) in thicknesses of 1/2” (12.7mm), 1” (25.4mm), 1 ½” (38.1mm), and 2”(50.8mm).
