Lindberg/MPH announced the shipment of a box furnace with retort to a laboratory in Canada. The box furnace will be used to test parts in a hydrogen atmosphere. The atmospheric retort allows for uniform heating and less chance of contamination within the work chamber.

The temperature range for this laboratory box furnace is 100°C to 1200°C and the customer will run it at a maximum temperature of 1050°C The work chamber dimensions are 10.75” wide x 23.75” deep x 11.25” high. The lab furnace has individual heating elements at chamber top, bottom and sides for uniform heat distribution.

This box furnace utilizes Moldatherm® ceramic fiber insulation to allow rapid heat-up, recovery and cool-down rates. High temperature insulation is used to minimize heat loss and improve temperature control. The inlet atmosphere is controlled through a flowmeter and nitrogen is used to purge the chamber before the introduction of hydrogen.
