The Centorr Series 10 High Temperature Vacuum or Controlled Atmosphere, Cold Wall, Graphite Tube Furnaces are simple and easy to operate.
A furnace system typically consists of the Basic Furnace Chamber Assembly, the Evacuation System, the Process Gas System, the Power Supply, the Temperature Control Instrumentation, and the Furnace Mounting System.
These furnaces are built having Effective Heat Zone sizes of 2.4" ID x 4" ID to 14" Long or 4" ID x 6" to 16" Long, and capable of operating 2750°C in Vacuum, in Inert Gas, Nitrogen (or in Reducing or in Oxidizing Atmospheres with Muffle Tube Kit).
The Evacuation Kit is capable of attaining 10 - 50 Microns; the Furnace Chamber may be backfilled to 2 PSIG.
The Furnace chamber is usually mounted on a stand with the Evacuation System located behind for maximum efficiency. The Power Supply / Control Console are also located as close as possible to the Furnace Chamber.
The Furnace is ready to operate as soon as power is connected to the main circuit breaker, and water inlet and drain connections are made.
Prior to shipment, the Furnace is completely assembled and thoroughly tested; a copy of test results will accompany shipment.
Centorr/Vacuum Industries' manufacturing facilities have been repeatedly expanded and now include a group of integrated shops staffed and equipped for machining, metal forming, fabricating, electro-mechanical assembling, and operational testing of complete furnace and related processing systems. Centorr/Vacuum Industries' Applied Technology Center is staffed with a graduate ceramic engineer and technician. The lab is equipped with five high-temperature furnaces, and various metallographic support equipment to permit analysis and evaluation of a client's process requirements.
