The Vertical Tube Furnace has a heated lengths of 200mm and 350mm, with a tube diameters of 50, 75, 100 and 125mm and is available as vertical model only.
The Bottom Loading Furnace offers several advantages and is suitable for firing and sintering of advanced ceramics and high temperature glass melting. Excellent temperature uniformity is obtained by the inclusion of molybdenum disilicide heating elements which are positioned around the walls of the chamber ensuring uniform heating of the sample. A combination of dense refractory brick hot face insulation and a secondary low thermal mass layer of insulation provides a robust chamber with an efficient utilisation of power.
The Carbolite's extensive range of tube furnaces is probably the most comprehensive available from a single source and includes wire heated tube furnaces to 1200°C, silicon carbide heated furnaces up to 1700°C and molybdenum disilicide heated elements for furnaces up to 1700°C. Tube furnaces at 1800°C are heated by lanthanum chromite elements.
