Type of Glasses
Soda-Lime Glass (Herculite) is relatively inexpensive but has the poorest thermal-shock and thermal stress resistance. When properly tempered it exhibits superior strength. Soda-lime glass is the most common of glass and is used to manufacture bottles, lightbulbs and windows.
Borosilicate Glass (Pyrex) is the most commonly used sight window material. It has a relatively low coefficient of expansion and good strength characteristics. When tempered it can handle pressures twenty four times higher than in its annealed form. It has excellent chemical resistance and is good up to 500 °F. Borosilicate glass is used in the manufacturing of laboratory equipment, glass pipe and cooking accessories.
Fused Silica , or Quartz Glass, shows reasonably good strength properties and superior thermal characteristics. At continuous temperatures up to 1,832°F, it has about 80% of the strength of annealed borosilicate. Continuous use at high temperatures results in a loss of strength. Much more expensive than soda-lime or borosilicate glass, but it does offer the highest operating temperatures and the most resistant to thermal shock.
Plate Glass Available in thicknesses from 1/8" to 1" in many common sizes. All flat glass shapes can be provided with drilled holes, edge beveling and polishing
Glass Cylinders Cylinders are cut from borosilicate heavy wall tubing, available in lengths up to 48" and with graduation marks to indicate volume. Standard wall thickness range from 5/32" to 3/8". Contact Archon for pressure rating.
Rectangular Glass Plain and reflex gage glass is standard. Special high pressure gage glass is available. there are nine available sizes ranging from 4.5" long to 13.38" long. Contact Archon for specific requirements
