Transfer Wheel Parts and Contact Materials
The main purpose of the transfer wheel in glass ware handling within the hollow glass production process is to prepare the container for entry into the lehr. The transfer wheel receives the container from the individual section (IS) machine conveyor and changes the direction in which the container is traveling and ensures that the spacing between each container is equal.
Pyrotek manufactures transfer wheel pads and holders in many types of materials and designs. They have high impact resistance, long service life, are designed to limit glass checking, provide container support and stability and are cost-effective.
