Brazing ahead with Glass Solutions

Innoval Technology - a global aluminium consultancy company - relies on Glass Solutions to supply precision-manufactured bodies for glass tube brazing furnaces.

Innoval Technology - a global aluminium consultancy company - relies on Glass Solutions to supply precision-manufactured bodies for glass tube brazing furnaces. Adam Nadin, a metallurgical engineer at Innoval, explained: "Many of the companies that manufacture aluminium components do not have in-house laboratories, so rely on our expertise to provide process support and product-related solutions. Using a glass tube brazing furnace, our Materials Testing Team can quickly and accurately simulate industrial conditions on a small scale."


"We initially looked at purchasing a ready-made glass tube brazing furnace, but had trouble sourcing equipment that met our needs, and so decided to create our own. We approached Glass Solutions to produce the glass outer body and replaceable inner sleeve, because the company had considerable experience in manufacturing complex and robust glassware for scientific instruments. We simply supplied the technical drawings, and they produced exactly what we required; it really was that easy. Glass Solutions has since manufactured a number of additional furnace bodies for us to supply to customers around the world, and we've always been very happy with the quality of the service we receive."
