September 14, 2017 – Lindberg/MPH announced the shipment is 1200°C hinged, 3 zone, tube furnace. This tube furnace is designed for horizontal use and can be used with a variety of customer supplied ceramic, quartz, or alloy process tubes or retorts. This tube furnace was designed for use with the customers’ existing control system.
The work chamber dimensions of this tube furnace are 36” L X 7” Diameter. It has a maximum temperature rating is 1200°C. Total equipment input is approximately 14.28kW @ 240V / single phase.
This furnace has an insulating vestibule at each end. It is equipped with a full-length hinge and a positive latch for easy observation, fast cooling, convenient placement of the process tube and overall ease of operation. The furnace utilizes semi-cylindrical heating units located in each half to form a long, split cylindrical heated chamber. The heated chamber is divided into 3 independent zones with independent thermocouples for control reference to allow adjustable profiling of end zones by customers’ controls. In operation, the end zone set points can be raised to compensate for heat losses and increase the length of the uniform temperature zone in the center of the furnace. The furnace is equipped with long-life, fast response thermocouples attached to six feet of compensated lead wire with a polarized plug.
“This tube furnace allows for great temperature uniformity and process repeatability which is key for R&D applications.” Kelley Shreve, Applications Engineer
