Transparent Tube Furnace from Thermcraft
Jim Miller from Thermcraft shows us their transparent tube furnace that was originally developed by MIT. The transparent nature of the furnace allows the user to gain valuable insights into what is happening to their sample at various temperatures so they can develop a good understanding of what is happening during their process. The transparent tube furnace is primarily used in research applications where chemical and physical changes as a function of temperature can be observed.
The furnace uses a gold plated glass outer tube that becomes transparent at about 600°C. It has a maximum operating temperature of 1000°C. It also features:
- Low thermal mass
- High thermal responsiveness
- Low refractory ceramic fiber usage, making it suitable for use in cleanrooms
- Very fast thermal cycling
Run time - 2:22min
