Vacuum Furnaces

As the name suggests vacuum furnaces heat materials, most often metals in a vacuum atmosphere. Due to the absence of other gases such as oxygen, the materials being heated do not react with the surrounding gases as is the case in other types of furnaces, which eliminates the formation of unwanted compounds/impurities/contaminants on the surface. This also affords ability to perform operations with a high level of consistency . Vacuum furnaces are most often used for the controlled heat treatment or metals, but other operations such as brazing may also be performed in vacuum furnaces.
