High Pressure Tube Furnace with 20mm ID. Super-alloy Tube up to 1100C @ 700PSI- OTF1200X-HP-55

OTF-1200X-HP-55 is a CE certified split tube furnace with Ni based super-alloy tube (55mm O.D x 20 mm I.D x 600 mm L) and flanges/valves. It is designed for using at high pressure (7 MPa) up to 1100°C under oxidizing and inert gas atmosphere to process special compound. It is a ideal furnace to use for preparing new materials under high pressure, and also can be use as mini HIP to treat metallic sample.

  • Double layer steel casing with air cooling.
  • High purity fibrous alumina insulation for max. energy saving.
  • Aluminum heat sink on processing tube to ensure pressure flange and fitting < 80°C
Power 2.5KW
Voltage AC 208 - 240V Single Phase, 50/60 Hz
Max. Temperature 1100°C
Max. Heating Rate <= 30°C/min

    Safety Notes
    • Ni based Super-alloy ( Waspaloy or equivalent) is a reliable processing tube which can be used under high temperature and high pressure. It has excellent ductility and tensile property so only creep deformation happens under overpressure destruction test and following by a crack formed (usually at the hot zone at the center of tube) to release the pressure. Brittle fracture won’t happen in the overpressure destruction test which means no tube explosion will happen under overpressure of inert gas or safe gas or under other accidents causing overpressure of inert gas or safe gas.
              Above pics show Ni based Super-alloy ( Waspaloy or equivalent) processing tube under overpressure test
    • Please never use ordinary SS tube to connect to gas-inlet for using > 5Mp pressure, whcih may cause tube exploded.
    • Attention:for the use with flammable, toxic or corrosive gases, you must contact MTI engineering group for the consultation to know all the prerequisites and precautionary measures.
    • Attention: Due to the high pressure gas output from the gas cylinder, it is necessary to install the gas pressure regulator with it to reduce the output pressure, avoid overpressurizing the furance chamber and ensure a safe operation. Click here to learn the installation of a gas regulator.
