High Temperature Compact Tube Furnace - CTF 17 / TZF 17



The high temperature tube furnace range CTF / TZF consists of single zone and 3-zone models, which both use molybdenum disilicide heating elements.

The single zone CTF high temperature tube furnace is available with heated lengths of 300 mm and 600 mm and maximum operating temperatures of 1700 °C and 1800 °C.

The TZF 3-zone high temperature tube furnace is available at 1700 °C and 1800 °C. The heated length is divided into 3 zones. An extended uniform zone in the mid-section of the work tube is achieved with the use of end zone controllers which track the centre zone temperature and compensate for the loss of heat from the tube ends.
