Quartz Components

Quartz plates and windows

Many ultraviolet (UV) curing systems incorporate quartz plates (quartz windows) (quartz filters) in their equipment. The plate is mounted between the UV lamp and the substrate. Edges are ground smooth and polished. Plates can be repeatedly cleaned. We can produce almost any size and thickness required. Typically, you will save 60% versus the OEM product.

Quartz plates serve many purposes including 

  • They  isolate the ultraviolet lamp allowing defined areas for cooling air

  • Help mitigate substrate temperature

  • Keep misting ink off the UV lamp

  • Help maintain optimum UV lamp temperature

To insure optimum performance, it is vitally important to keep your quartz plates clean and free from fingerprints. Quartz plates naturally solarize with age due to high temperature and UV level. Over time UV transmission is reduced. Regular cleaning and/or replacement should be part of any maintenance plan. Not all quartz is alike. TCS Technologies uses only American sourced materials for consistent UV output. Quartz originating in China oftentimes is full of impurities. UV transmission is lower hence your system suffers. 

Optically coated quartz

We can also provide flat quartz plates that incorporate a vacuum deposited metal film. The film reflects infrared back to the lamp and transmits ultraviolet. This is known as a hot mirror. 

Curved profiles are also available with a special IR transmitting, ultraviolet reflecting coating known as a cold mirror. Unfortunately any optically coated material has limited cleaning ability due to the nature of the vacuum coating.

Water jackets

TCS can fabricate any size cooling tube from the highest quality quartz available. We can also economically clean and restore existing cooling tubes.

We can fabricate any size quartz plate (window). Please see the drawing below. For a prompt quote simply provide the dimensions A, B and C
