High Temperature Furnace
The Thermal Technology Inc. LABMASTER High Temperature Furnace has a hot zone size of 3.75" dia x 6" long. An alumina muffle is incorporated into the HTF to allow operation in oxidizing atmospheres. The maximum operating temperature with the muffle is 1750 °C with a ±3°C uniformity over a 2" zone. The furnace runs an automated program input by the user. Processes can be run in an inert atmosphere or vacuum environment down to 5 Torr. The maximum ramp rate is 200°C/hour and the cool down time from 1750°C to <100°C is ~2-3 hours. Currently the gases available are Nitrogen, Argon, and Helium and available reactor gases are Argon, Nitrogen, Oxygen, Helium, and forming gas.
