Laboratory Furnaces and Kilns

Used for academic research, as well as commercial R&D or quality control, laboratory furnaces supply constant heating to samples and materials. Both furnaces and kilns are typically constructed from high-temperature materials, which allow them to maintain their integrity while operating at hundreds or thousands of degrees. Often, laboratory furnaces are set to operate for months at a time to process samples. As labs often work with a wide range of materials, ideal laboratory furnaces and kilns have significant flexibility and range of use. For instance, some furnaces allow for different atmospheres, like high-vacuum or partial pressures. There are also many kits available to increase the functionality of a kiln or lab furnace.
