Tube Furnace Range

Our tube furnaces provide excellent temperature uniformity and are ideal for heating small samples.

Each tube furnace in our range can be modified to meet your exact needs. When specified at the order stage our tube furnaces can be upgraded to include sophisticated digital controllers, programmers, and loggers. Over-temperature protection is also available along with additional safety features such as insulation plugs and radiation shields.

Some of our tube furnaces are designed with an integral work tube while others require a separate work tube. This is an extremely flexible arrangement; work tubes are available in different diameters and materials (quartz, ceramic or metal). When a work tube of an adequate length is used, a standard tube furnace can easily be upgraded for use with a controlled atmosphere or a vacuum.

Tube Furnace Details

Typical applications of tube furnaces include the purification, coating, drying, hardening or ageing of samples. Among other uses, a tube furnace can also be used for annealing, brazing, calcination, degassing, sintering, soldering, sublimation, synthesis, and tempering. In a laboratory a tube furnace could be used for thermocouple calibration, in the testing of fuel cells, or in catalyst research.

The intended use of your tube furnace will govern which furnace is most suitable for you. Our tube furnace selection ranges from simple and economical options such as the wire wound single zone tube furnace through to more advanced systems such as the AZ tube furnace, which has eight independently controllable heating zones. The controllable heating zones of the AZ tube furnace allows a temperature gradient to be set for applications such as chemical vapour deposition.
