QVF® SUPRA-Line


Borosilicate glass 3.3 is a most suitable and a longtime proven material in the chemical and pharmaceutical industry due to its universal corrosion resistance, smoothness and transparency. The special material properties of borosilicate glass 3.3 require specially adapted manufacturing processes providing specific shapes of the connecting glass flanges. Due to the fact that glass systems have been manufactured since decades, numerous different types of glass flanges are still in use and comply with e.g DIN and TA-Luft standards. In the course of our company history 4 glass systems had already been established since the mid-50s. They have been replaced 2012 by the QVF® SUPRA-Line.

 

 

 

Full Compatibility
 

The QVF® SUPRA-Line combines the technical advantages of these former glass systems. Furthermore, the QVF® SUPRA-Line permits not only to connect the former glass systems to the QVF® SUPRA-Line but also to interconnect the different former glass systems among each other.
