Question: How are vessel lined with glass or how are they coated?
Keywords: v1i4,glass-lined,glass,lined,manufacture,how,bonded,coated,
Answer: First, the glass mixture is smelted for form the proper recipe based on temperature and pressure requirements of the vessel. Then the glass is ground into tiny particles and suspended in a liquid medium called a slip. This mixture is then spayed onto the surface to be coated. The vessel is then heated to about 800 0C to bond the glass to the steel (usually carbon steel). The vessel is then slowly cooled.
