Processing Tube

  • 99.8%High purity Al2O3 Ceramic, ID: 54mm; OD: 60 mm x Length 850 mm
  • Two fibrous ceramic tube blocks are included for blocking heat radiation from inside tube. (Ceramic blocks must be fully inserted into the furnace chamber before heating)
  • You may consider using a tungsten wire to hang up a crucible or sample to quench sample ( click Pic right to learn )
  •       

Vacuum Sealing and Valve

  • Vacuum pressure can reach 50 mTorr by a quality mechanical vacuum pump and 10^-5 torr by turbo molecular pump. Please click the picture below to see flange assembling details.
  •             
  • Optional: You may consider using the parts in below to increase the vacuum efficiency 
  •               
  • Please click picture below to learn how to quench sample in gas flow and vacuum
  • Approach#1: Traditional wire cut and free-falling  ( Fig. 1 & 2 )
  • Approach#2: Electromagnetic release and free-falling. (Fig 3 & 4 )

Electromagnet Sample Release Flange & Quenching
         

  • Full automatic electromagnet sample release flange
  • Hinged plate hooks the cable, which pulls the sample.
  • Hinged plate drops when the electromagnet powers off. The sample and the cable fall into the quenching tank.
  • Rings are available for hanging the tube block with cables.
  • Bottom flange is connected with a 4" gate valve ( manual operated ) via CF-100 adaptor
  • The gate valve is connected with a quenching media container in size 400 x400 x 200 H ( mm )
  • Caution: You must use ice water or cooled oil as quenching agent if quenching under vacuum.

 Quenching operation

  • One stainless steel tank is located on the bottom of the furnace to contain quenching liquid.
  • One large gate valve is built in bottom tube
  • One electromagnet is installed on top flange and hold sample hanging wire up to 500 g
  • Touch the release button of the electromagnet on temperature control unit, the sample will drop to the liquid tank.
  • Before release, sample must fill argon gas to  5 psi and open gate valve

Warning

 

MoSi2 heating element is used in high temperature under an oxidizing atmosphere. During the oxidizing process, the SiO2 protective film is formed again the heating element from melting during sustained use. The MoSi2 heating element must not be used in the temperature between 400 oC and 700 oC for a long time, otherwise, the element will be cremated under the strong oxidizing atmosphere at low temperatures.
