You can use our Stannex Tin Oxide Electrodes for a wide range of applications. Furthermore, you can apply their use to many different types of furnace and glass. For example, you can use them in Melting, Boosting and Refining.

At Glassworks, we pride ourselves in our cutting-edge manufacture and technical expertise. So, you are guaranteed to receive exceptional value.  The furnace, forehearth or feeder channel life is often compromised. By choosing our pure, isostatically-pressed Stannex Tin Oxide Electrodes, connector systems, perfected connector systems and expert design all uncertainty is removed.

We manufacture all connector systems for Rod and Block electrons in-house. Also, we pair our connector systems to the electrode.

All electrodes are made from pure tin oxide and are isostatically pressed and sintered. No recycled or reclaimed material is used. Tin Oxide is often the preferred choice over molybdenum, due either to colouration, redox or much lower current density which does not cause re-boil in feeders, for example.

Every electrode is individually made, numbered, tested and approved before despatch. QC Data is recorded and sent to the customer.

Glassworks design and manufacture connector systems allowing the customer to buy a complete “package” deal.
