Title (EN) COMBINATION HEATER QUENCH
(FR) DISPOSITIF DE CHAUFFE ET DE TREMPE COMBINE
Abstract:
(EN) A glass sheet tempering system (10) disclosed comprises a single station heater and quench that includes a heating source (16) for heating the glass sheet (12) and also an air supply (18) for supplying quenching air to temper the heated glass sheet (12). The heating source (16) and air supply (18) are defined by a pair of spaced and opposed plenums (20, 20') that provide heating and quenching of the glass sheet (12) generally in one location without having to transport the glass sheet (12) between separate heating and quenching stations.
(FR) Un système de trempe (10) de feuille de verre comprend un dispositif de chauffe et de trempe en une station unique comportant une source de chauffe (16) destinée à chauffer la feuille de verre (12) ainsi qu'une alimentation en air (18) destinée à fournir de l'air de trempe afin de refroidir rapidement la feuille de verre chauffée (12). La source de chauffe (16) et l'alimentation en air sont définies par une paire de chambres espacées et opposées (20, 20') assurant la chauffe et la trempe de la feuille de verre (12), généralement en un emplacement, sans qu'il faille transporter la feuille de verre (12) entre des stations de chauffe et de trempe séparées.
