The CARBOLITE GERO brand is synonymous with high quality, leading heat technology in the design and manufacture of laboratory and industrial ovens and furnaces ranging from 30 °C to 3000 °C and sold globally to over 100 countries.
On 1st January 2016 Carbolite (UK) and Carbolite Gero (Germany) joined to become one company under the name of CARBOLITE GERO. With the combined product lines the company will strengthen its market position locally and globally. In the past, both companies gained strong, established reputations for engineering expertise in applied heating technology.
CARBOLITE GERO has two manufacturing and sales sites. One is based in Derbyshire, United Kingdom, where Carbolite has been manufacturing laboratory and industrial ovens and furnaces up to 1800 °C since 1938; the second facility is located in Neuhausen, southern Germany, where high temperature furnaces up to 3000 °C with a large variety of solutions for vacuum and other modified atmospheres have been manufactured since 1982.
In addition to the wide range of standard products, CARBOLITE GERO is an expert in the development of customized equipment for complex heat treatment processes. Solving customers’ individual application requirements has given Carbolite Gero an important place in aerospace, engineering, materials science, medical, bioscience and contract testing laboratories globally to name a few.
Not only can CARBOLITE GERO supply products with Standards-compliant furnace and oven designs (eg, Nadcap heat treatment processes (AMS2750E)), but also fully traceable certification for control, measurement, recording and data acquisition devices, issued by an independent UKAS accredited laboratory.
Carbolite Quality Assurance
ISO 9001:2008 registered (Certified by SGS United Kingdom Ltd – UKAS 0005).
Carbolite Gero manufactures and stocks a range of laboratory ovens for routine lab applications. These are ideal for general laboratory work and routine heat applications. They all provide excellent temperature uniformity and comply with safety standard BS EN 61010-2-010:2003.
Our industrial oven models are available with temperatures up to 750°C and volumes up to more than 13,000 litres, meeting the demands for different industrial applications and customer requirements. Their design is characterized by robust construction and lasting materials, making them ideal for heavy duty applications. They can be supplied with a wide range of options, including over-temperature protection, loading and handling mechanisms or advanced temperature control systems.
Carbolite Gero’s laboratory chamber furnaces have a uniform working volume; this is a three dimensional region that is controlled within the specified tolerances for temperature uniformity. Select a chamber where this uniform volume is large enough to accommodate the items to be heated. For applications involving chemical vapours, gases or humidity always check with us which furnaces and elements will be best for your requirements.
All of our industrial furnaces are designed and built to be extremely hard-wearing, safe, and easy to service. They are available in various sizes, from compact bench mounted models through to large floor standing models with heating chambers of up to more than 3000 litres in volume. Maximum temperatures of up to 3000°C are available.
Whether you require a chamber, tube, vacuum or application specific furnace Carbolite Gero has a wide range of standard and bespoke solutions that can meet your needs and exceed your expectations. From Additive Manufacturing, Annealing or Ashing through to Siliconization, Sintering and Vacuum brazing our furnaces are widely used in sectors including aerospace, automotive, coal, energy, food, precious metals, and industrial / academic research.
Since 2012 CARBOLITE GERO is part of the continuously growing technology group VERDER and forms part of the group’s Laboratory Division VERDER SCIENTIFIC. Other companies belonging to this division are ATM GmbH, RETSCH GmbH, Retsch Technology GmbH and Eltra GmbH.
