Critical Specifications for Choosing the Right Furnace 

When choosing a laboratory furnace, it’s essential to consider the following critical specifications: 

  1. Temperature range: Make sure the furnace can reach the temperature range required for your specific application.
  2. Size and capacity: Consider the size of the furnace with the volume of samples you need to process and the available space in your lab.
  3. Heating rate: The heating rate determines how quickly the furnace can reach the desired temperature. A faster heating rate may be necessary for specific applications.
  4. Temperature uniformity: It’s vital to ensure that the temperature within the furnace is uniform, as variations can affect the accuracy and reliability of your results.
  5. Control system: The furnace should be easy to use and allow precise temperature control and monitoring.
  6. Safety features: Look for furnaces with safety features such as over-temperature protection and explosion-proof construction, if necessary, for your application. 
  7. Compatibility with other equipment: Consider whether the furnace is compatible with any additional equipment or instruments you may be using in your lab.
  8. Maintenance and service: Look for a supplier that offers maintenance and repair services and technical support to ensure that your furnace is always in top working condition.

High Thermal Efficiency and Safety 

When working at such high temperatures, there is no substitute for good build quality. Our furnaces use highly thermal efficient materials to protect against wear and tear while providing even heat and low running costs. 

No matter how long your test or process is, you can trust our furnaces to complete them efficiently. 

What is the Temperature Range of a Laboratory Chamber Furnace? 

For most furnaces on the open market, the temperature range is 1000°C – 1800°C. Understanding the heating range you will work on is critical for choosing the correct furnace. 

If you were to be working in the 1000°C – 1200°C range, a furnace with a metallic heating wire would suffice, but if you need to reach 1600°C, you would need a furnace with a silicon carbide heating element. 

For those wanting to reach 1800°C, you will need a furnace with a molybdenum disilicide heating element. 

Furnaces that can reach a higher temperature will cost you more. 

What are furnaces used for? 

Laboratory furnaces are specialised equipment for various research, development, and industrial applications. They are designed to provide precise temperature control and are used to heat, melt, evaporate, or decompose a wide range of materials. Some common uses for laboratory furnaces include: 

  1. Heat treatment of metals and alloys: Laboratory furnaces heat materials to high temperatures to alter their microstructure and properties. It can strengthen metals, improve their corrosion resistance, or change their electrical or thermal conductivity.
  2. Ceramics processing: Laboratory furnaces are used to sinter ceramics, which involves heating them to high temperatures to create a solid, homogenous mass. This process creates various products, including structural and refractory ceramics, catalysts, and electronics.
  3. Ashing: Laboratory furnaces are used to burn organic materials to analyse their composition. This process, known as ashing, involves heating the sample to high temperatures in a controlled environment to oxidise the organic matter, leaving behind inorganic ash that can be analysed for its elemental content.
  4. Glass melting: Laboratory furnaces form glass into various shapes and sizes. This process involves heating the glass to high temperatures until it becomes malleable, at which point it can be shaped and cooled to form a solid.
  5. Materials testing: Laboratory furnaces are used to test the properties of materials under various temperature conditions. This can include testing materials’ strength, conductivity, or other characteristics to understand their behaviour under different conditions. 

Overall, laboratory furnaces are essential for various applications in science, industry, and research. They provide precise temperature control and a controlled environment for numerous processes, making them valuable equipment in any laboratory setting.
