Laboratory Chamber Furnace - CWF

Download Brochure Data sheet


CWF 11/13CWF 12/36 with 3216P1 programmer option

The CWF range of general purpose laboratory chamber furnaces is bench mounted. Models are available in five sizes with a maximum operating temperature up to 1300 °C.

The airflow in the CWF-B furnaces is enhanced by the addition of air inlet holes in the door and a tall chimney which rapidly removes the fumes from the furnace.

The CWF-BAL furnace with integral balance can be used for thermogravimetric analysis (TGA) and loss on ignition (LOI) applications, where weight change of the sample must be monitored during the heating process. This is required, for example, in the determination of inorganic matter content in materials such as cement, lime, calcinated bauxite and refractories. For applications involving organic matter content, please refer to the AAF-BAL.

Technical details

Airflow in CWF-B
  1. Air inlets through the door plug
  2. Airflow through the chamber promotes burning of the samples
  3. Chimney pulls air through the chamber
