RIVERSIDE, Mich. (PRWEB) October 16, 2017
Lindberg/MPH announced the shipment of a 1500°C heavy duty box furnace to a University. The 1500°C box furnace offers excellent temperature uniformity, rapid response rate, dense load capability, and process repeatability which makes it ideal for testing, research and development, and laboratory applications. The 1500°C box furnace is suited for multiple applications such as annealing, ashing, carbon firing, ceramic firing, hardening, sintering, solution treating, and stress relieving.
The maximum temperature rating of this box furnace is 1500°C and the work chamber dimensions are 16” W x 24” D x 16” H. The box furnace has insulating vestibules and is equipped with a directly hinged, insulated plug door. An internal vent located in the top center of the vestibule aids in dissipating the initial heat surge that occurs when the door is opened.
This box furnace is designed with a few custom features such as a ½” inlet pipe in the rear of the chamber for the use of an inert cover gas, a custom built stand to maintain a 42” height from the floor with locking casters to allow the furnace to be moved to different locations within the facility. The box furnace utilizes a Eurotherm Nanodac programmable controller that offers 2 PID control loops and auto-tune for fast, efficient start up. Standard ethernet communications and a paperless chart recorder were also added.
