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.
