Carbolite STF 16/180 Tube Furnace, 180mm heated length. Maximum overall diameter of tube insert 60mm.
Carbolite Gero STF stands for Single Zone Tube Furnace, uniform length plus or minus 5 is 80mm. Maximum temperature is 1600C, continuous working temperature 1500C. Maximum power 2500 watts.
Heating is provided by Silicon Carbide elements, which allow fast heating to operating temperature. Furnaces are supplied without a work tube customer may have their own or choose from chemically resistant tubes or other and different lengths dependent on application. Furnaces can be bored to accept a specific diameter as standard accepts 60mm or 90mm outer diameter. Longer tubes allow clearance from the furnace to support accessories necessary for gas insertion and vacuum deployment. Work tube seals, plugs, gas or vacuum inlets. Please enquire to Norrscope if unsure. Supplied with Carbolite Gero 301 PID controller with single ramp to setpoint and process timer, optional upgrades that allow programming for ramping and RS232, RS485 or Ethernet connectivity available and data loggers.
STF 16 examples of use Novel materials testing for research, testing of electronic components under vacuum or and inert atmospheres, sensor heat testings for example thermocouples. For applications that require precision uniformity three zone versions are available.
Over temperature protection used if furnace has expensive contents or is left unattended for large periods of time
A range of additional work tubes in various lengths and materials quartz, ceramic, metal, end seals and work tube packages is available for use with modified atmosphere and vacuum. Or for simply aiding heat retention.
Pumps are offered for vacuum application: rotary vane pump or turbomolecular pump
Insulation plugs & radiation shields to contain heat loss and enhance uniformity
Electrical configuration 2 or 3 phase electrical supply possible
Hook and strap work tube support
