Tube Furnace up to 1600°C - STF / TZF

Download Brochure Data sheet


STF 16/180STF 15/610 with 3216P1 programmer and L stand option

The Carbolite Gero STF single zone and TZF 3-zone high temperature tube furnace range is available at 1500 °C and 1600 °C with both models using silicon carbide heating elements.

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 TZF 3-zone high temperature tube furnace has heated lengths of 450 and 610 mm. 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.
