Redfoot Enterprises are a manufacturer of stainless steel braided parts to replace carbon, graphite, Teflon  or similar hot glass contact material. Parts can be custom made or selected to fit and compliment most original equipment suppliers product ranges. 

The stainless steel braid products has the following benefits over existing materials normally associated with hot glass contact:

  • Longer life – typically a stainless steel braided stacker insert or radial transfer finger will last around 7-12 months, depending on size of container.
  • No checking – highly resistant to thermal checking the hot glass containers during the handling from sweep-out to the lehr.
  •  No breakage – The stainless steel braid is secured to the metal piece by welding, thus severe impact on the piece of equipment does not cause the piece to shatter and break or fall off when   secured with silicone/glue.
  • No contamination – Used inserts or fingers can be placed in a washer together with other variable equipment  when job changes occur and will be clean and oil free when used again.
  • Direct replacement – existing holders or brackets do not need to be modified to fit the welded stainless steel products.

Due to industry demand, Redfoot has developed a range of stacker pockets and side pockets to replace existing graphite pieces. Inserts can be fitted on various heights, thereby increasing the range of ware to be stacked from short to odd shaped ware.
