Graphite solutions for the glass industry


Gerken’s advanced graphite machining capabilities allow us to manufacture complex shaped components for use in the extreme, high temperature conditions found in glass manufacturing facilities.

Our graphite components are used extensively in the tin bath and dross box stages of float glass manufacture as:

  • Dams                                   
  • Scrapers
  • Paddles
  • Bearings
  • Liners
  • Sleeves
  • Pumps

Major international glass manufacturers such as St. Gobain, AGC, Euroglas and others routinely rely on our graphite parts in their critical processes.
