High Temperature Furnace Applications

H.C. Starck Solutions offers tungsten and molybdenum materials for use in high temperature vacuum and argon atmosphere furnaces. The company offers services such as pre-characterization of materials, for instance, assessing material performance after subjected to high temperature annealing.

Lab Testing Furnaces

  • Chemical reactions furnaces (air, vacuum or other atmospheres)
  • High temperature capabilities in vacuum, reduced and inert atmospheres

Controlled Atmosphere Furnace Applications

Furnace – Heating elements and heat shields
Energy – Carbide drilling equipment
Medical – Orthopedic and joint replacements
Aerospace – Rocket nozzles

Sapphire Crystal growth furnaces feature uniquely designed hot zones for housing crucibles, which melt alumina for high quality substrates that are applied in the production of LEDs.

Molybdenum Sheet, Plate and Foil Products

H.C. Starck Solutions employs two primary consolidation techniques, namely powder metallurgy and vacuum arc-casting, for the production of a variety of molybdenum and molybdenum alloy mill products. The wide selection of products made using these established processes provides several options to users in choosing the right material for their specific application requirements. Using these processes, the company offers mill products in a variety of forms such as foil, plate, sheet, rod, bar, and forging billets.
