Glass Annealing or an Annealing Oven in Michigan

By Paul Subscribe to RSS | May 17th 2012 | Views:

There are several types of materials that do well to have an annealing process done to them. Annealing ovens are very handy pieces of equipment to help you achieve good effects with your materials, such as glass, metal, steel, copper, and bronze. Whatever can be heated and changed, the annealing oven can help melt out impurities and can also change the form of the material to something more desirable for a given project. This article will talk about glass annealing, which can be done in a kiln or an annealing oven.

What are heat recovery systems? These systems, in essence, are just ventilators that will help to move heat and then re-harness it so that it can be used again. Often the system will gather or store the heat and then deliver it to another area of a business/industrial line, so that it can be quickly used again to preheat incoming materials that need heat. In water systems, for example, these can work really well. Rather than having your water boiler have to heat up cold water each time the hot water faucet is used, from a basic cold state, the heat recovery system will be something that has captured the already hot water (used) and then channeled it to a place where it will preheat more water in the boiler so that less energy is used in the process. You save money and the water is hotter, faster.

The basis is that glass annealing is a process that will heat and then slowly cool glass so that it relieves internal stresses that may have been caused after the glass was originally formed. You can do this in a temperature controlled kiln, which is the most common procedure. Of course a kiln is nothing more than an annealing oven, with a more specific name. If your glass hasn’t been annealed, then it is more likely to crack or shatter even if it only receives a small shock. Temperature changes can also affect un- annealed glass, causing similar cracking or breaking effects. So then it goes without saying that using an annealing oven for glass will really increase its durability and make it far more suitable for lasting use.

For other types of materials, you can also reap similar benefits. Steel can become far more uniform and thus stronger when it cools. You are literally melting out the stress that has built up when you are working with materials which are subjected to heat changes during their formation. When you heat something up and cool it, you’ll have a clash of temperatures which causes the stress to build within the material.

Remember that you can also use heat recovery systems to harness the heat you may lose in your annealing ovens or kilns. There are always great ways to couple big machines and systems like this so that you are running a sustainable operation! When money is saved and energy is saved, the earth is happier and you are happier. There are certain companies out there who will help you with both annealing ovens and heat recovery systems, such as Perceptive Industries of Michigan.
