Transported by LTL Freight (Truck)

Product Options

tube size:


GSL-1700X-VT-UL is UL/CSA ready to pass furnace with optional 80 mm or 100 mm diameter alumina processing tube. This high-temperature vertical tube furnace is using MoSi2 as heating elements. It is designed for heat treatment of all types of new materials under vacuum or other gas condition up to 1700oC. The temperature of the GSL-1700X-XXVT  tubing furnace is controlled by high precision SCR power controller with accuracy +/-1 oC and 30 segments programmable up to 1700oC (3092 oF).

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.
