The Universal Application Furnace: All the Furnace You Need

Basic High Temperature Furnace System includes the following components:
Inert Gas System
Additional features and specifications are also available
Our high temperature furnace is assembled with strength and longevity in mind, with a chamber, front door, and rear cover manufactured with double walled, 304L stainless steel. On top of this, each component is electropolished to attain the best vacuum quality possible.
Ports are incorporated into the high temperature furnace’s chamber and front door to accommodate a sight window, thermocouples, or an optical pyrometer.
Power to the rear of the element is supplied by silver plated copper power feedthroughs located on the rear cover, with power to the front element through silver plated copper knife switches. This allows us to eliminate power cables that are typically mounted on the front door.
The Heat Zone
When it comes to the design of your high temperature furnace, flexibility is one of our primary goals. With that in mind, one half of the element and the side and top shield packages are mounted on the front door of the furnace. This provides easy access to the work area of the heat zone, which can range from one inch diameter by one inch high up to four inches by four inches.
Depending on the operating temperatures of the unit and your common applications, the element and shield packages are available in Molybdenum, Tantalum, Tungsten, or Graphite.
