1200°C LGO(TM) Series Box Furnaces Reduce Thermal Process Cycle Times

ASHEVILLE, N.C., Sept. 29, 2003 - Versatile Lindberg/Blue M LGO Series Box Furnaces incorporate patented heating elements for fast heat-up, recovery, and reduced processing times, and provide superior temperature uniformity in demanding research and production applications.

Models offer temperatures from 100°C to 1200°C and chamber capacities of either 0.6 cu. ft. (17.0 L) with a vertical lift door or 2.0 cu. ft. (56.6 L) with a horizontal side-hinge door. Patented LGO (Light Gauge Overbend) heating elements imbedded within exclusive Moldatherm® insulation deliver maximum radiant heat energy to the process load and ensure efficient, economical heat transfer.

LGO Series Furnaces are available with advanced single setpoint or programmable PID microprocessor controllers for sophisticated temperature control. Programmable controllers provide either 16 or 300 segments for ramping and dwell functions. An 'Auto-Tune' function provides the best control possible for each temperature setpoint, while intuitive 'Super Control' suppresses temperature overshoot by using fuzzy logic to learn from previous ramp-up experience.

Standard features on all models include an air vent and air inlet for inert atmosphere exchange, Platinel II® thermocouple, safety door switch and removable shelves. A Moldatherm hearthplate supports load and prevents damage due to spillage.

An optional RS-485 digital communications port allows remote monitoring and furnace control via a personal computer. SPECVIEW PLUS® software provides data logging of any variable and the ability to monitor and control up to 30 furnaces from a single PC.
