This range of furnaces offers several advantages and is suitable for firing and sintering of advanced ceramics and high temperature glass melting. Excellent temperature uniformity is obtained by the inclusion of molybdenum disilicide heating elements which are positioned around the walls of the chamber ensuring uniform heating of the sample. A combination of dense refractory brick hot face insulation and a secondary low thermal mass layer of insulation provides a robust chamber with an efficient utilisation of power.
The electrically operated elevator hearth ensures operator safety and prevents direct radiation of heat from the chamber walls. It also ensures smooth loading and unloading of the workpiece/crucible and allows both heavy and delicate loads to be handled easily. The loading platform has a full travel which allows the complete chamber height to be used.
