Compact Vertical Tube Furnace - EVA / EVC



The compact vertical tube furnace range EVA / EVC uses free radiating wire elements embedded within the insulation of the furnace body.

The benefit of this design is its flexibility with the use of tube adapters the same tube furnace can be used with a variety of tube diameters.

The EVA are single zone furnaces and the EVC are three zone furnaces.

This range of tube furnaces does not include an integral work tube and one must be selected as an additional item. The work tube length is dependent on the application eg for use with modified atmosphere or vacuum. The use of a separate work tube has the advantage of protecting the heating elements from damage or contamination.
