three zone slide tube furnace with Flanges for Fast Heating | cyky

three zone slide tube furnace with 3″IDx79″ L quartz tube and flanges and a maximum working temperature up to 1200°C. One pair of sliding rail is installed on bottom of furnace to allow sliding the furnace from one side to another to achieve max. heating and cooling rates up to 100°C/min. For fastest heating, the furnace may be pre-heated to a desired temperature and then be slided to the sample’s position. As for fastest cooling, the furnace can be slided to another side after sample heating is completed. Moreover, the heating and cooling rates may reach 15°C/s under vacuum or inert gases. three zone slide tube furnace provides an alternative for rapid thermal processing at the lowest cost.

Temperature Controller

  • Three temperature controller with 30 programmable segments for precise control of heating rate, cooling rate and dwell time.
  • Built-in over temperature alarm and protection allows for operation without attendant.
  • Three  K type thermal couples are included.
  • Optional:  
    • The furnace may be operated by PC by installing control module. at extra cost. 
    • If you order the PC control module together with the furnace, we will install and test it before shipping. We recommend you to order a computer (laptop) from us to avoid software installation problems

Vacuum Flanges

  • Stainless steel vacuum flanges are installed on both ends of tube with heavy duty support. 
    • Left flange: hinged type flange for easy operation with KF-25 pump connector, digital vacuum gauge and needle valve.
    • Right flange: one needle valve and 1/4″ thermocouple feed-through. An 18″ length x 1/4″ dia. K type thermocouple (included) connected to an Omega temperature calibrator (included) will be inserted through this flange to monitor the heating and cooling rates of the sample’s position during furnace sliding.
