Flange for Direct Resistance Heating of Platinum Corning Inc, World Appl. 2009/108,314 A disc-shaped flange for heating a vessel carrying molten glass consists of concentric rings. The inner rings are composed of a similar high-temperature Pt alloy (>80% Pt, e.g. 10RhPt) to that of the exterior wall R1– R8 may be selected independently from: of the vessel, to which the innermost ring of the flange is welded. The outer rings are composed of >99% Ni alloy and receive electric current from a bus bar. Heating occurs as current flows through the Pt- containing rings, which are constructed to minimise heat loss through the flange and ensure optimal heat- ing of the vessel wall. An intermediate ring of Pt-Ni alloy with >77% Pt may also be included.
