This furnace is ideal for running Loss on Ignition (LOI) and volatiles tests. It is used to control the amount of sea coal, pitch, asphaltic and other facing materials added to sand. The furnace can also be used for ashing samples in chemical analysis. The temperature is automatically controlled to give reproducible results in heat-treating small metal samples.
The furnace is thoroughly insulated for continuous operation and completely equipped with counterweighted door with safety switch, and LED display that simultaneously shows both setpoint and actual furnace temperatures in either °C or °F.
