Laboratory Furnaces and Kilns

Laboratory Furnaces are used in many applications and are designed to function within a range of temperature zones. The specification of the furnace is primariliy determined by the quality or refractoriness of the insulation and the temperature capabilities of the heating elements. Higher temperatures are usually associated with higher costs. Almost all lab furnaces are operated via digital controllers which allow for a wide range of heat up, dwell and hold time and cooling rates. The type of products to be subjected to heating generally determine the geometry of the door/closure mechanism.
