Molybdennum & Tungsten Furnace Elements

Molybdenum & Tungsten mesh and weave heating elements provide exceptional benefits for users of high temperature vacuum and atmospheric furnaces.

Oxy-Gon manufactures reliable high-quality molybdenum & tungsten elements in both mesh and weave configurations. These elements are meticulously hand crafted and undergo rigorous quality control to ensure that each is built to the highest standards.

Oxy-Gon’s mesh and weave heating elements are made from continuous interlocked molybdenum & tungsten wire coils. When heated, each wire moves independently from its neighbor. The nature of the interlocked wire coils means that each element has built-in flexibility, especially compared to refractory sheet style elements. This largely eliminates mechanical and thermal stresses leading to considerably improved element life. These elements are available in both cylindrical and flat panel designs.

Standard element configurations

Circular Single Phase
– Split or one piece construction
Circular Three Phase
Flat Panel Three Phase

Mesh and weave element features:

Oxy-Gon elements provide excellent service life up to 3000°C with the tungsten mesh construction.

The high optical density provides even heat transfer to the work for exceptional temperature uniformity.

The large surface area of each element reduces watt density resulting in improved service life.

Minor individual wire breakage will not affect performance or service life.

Oxy-Gon can fabricate our mesh and weave elements to specific sizes and shapes, or they can be engineered to fit any brand of vacuum furnace.

The mesh and weave elements operate at the lowest possible temperature relative to the work temperature.
