In stock
Item Number: OTF-1200X-60HG
Transported by LTL Freight (Truck)


Upgrade to Eurotherm Temp. Controller
OTF-1200X-60HG is a safe hydrogen tube furnaces The processing tube is made of high quality Ni-based superalloy which never crack and broken at flowing Hydrogen gas. One 3M hydrogen detector is included which will shut down Hydrogen gas generator and gas inlet valve immediately once detecting hydrogen gas leaking .
The tube furnace is designed for processing material under hydrogen gas up to 1100°C safely. Also, the furnace can be used for all kind of inert gasses and oxygen gas up to 30 PSI. The precision temperature controller is 30 segment programmable.  
 Furnace Structure

  • Double layer steel casing with air cooling to keep furnace surface temperature lower than 60°C. 
  • High purity fibrous alumina insulation for Max. energy saving.

  • Hydrogen detector and solenoid valve are included for safe operation

  • The hydrogen gas furnace must be placed under fume hood which is not included. Please click to view the spec of MTI EQ-FH-36 fume hood.

Temperature controller
  • PID automatic control with 30 segments programmable 
  • Automatic over-temperature and thermal broken protection
  • RS485 Communications Port.
    • Advanced Temperature Control (Optional)
    • MTS02-Y Temperature control software kit (for YD518P series controllers) + 15" laptop package is available at the options bar. Click for the detail information about the MTS02-Y software kit. 
    • You may upgrade the temperature controller to the Eurotherm 3504 Temperature Controller which is fully compatible with LabVIEW. This package includes a Eurotherm 3504 programmer, a communication cable (RS485 - USB) and a software CD. Click the pic below to view the full spec of Eurotherm 3504 temperature controller. 
Temperature Accuracy +/ - 1°C
Flanges and Gas Inlet
  • Two sets of CF-63 flanges are welding on two ends of the tube which allow high vacuum up to 10E-5 torr and 30 PSI positive pressure.
  •       One solenoid valve is installed on the left of the flange for Hydrogen gas inlet. It connects with hydrogen detector.  Once hydrogen gas leak is detected ( 10% below hydrogen explode point ), gas inlet valve will be shut down immediately
  •       One pressure gauge is installed on the end of gas inlet.  Hydrogen gas pressure must be controlled under 5 PSI, which can be adjust by a stainless steel needle valve
Hydrogen Detector System
  • One Honeywell UL Approved Sensepoint Gas Detector is Integrated into the system.
  • Working Temperature Range:   40ºF to +149ºF (-40ºC to +65ºC)
  • Alarm Point:                            H2 Limited Explosive Line 10% (10% LEL).  Once detecting H2 gas beyond the point, it will shut off the inlet valve to the H2 automatically.

  • One 1000 ml/min floating meter is installed on gas-outlet end for adjusting gas flow rate
  • 1/4" Dia stainless steel tube is installed for burning hydrogen gas during gas flowing
  • One long lighter is included in the standard package for igniting hydrogen gas manually.
  • One 6" long neck flexes safe lighter is included for lighting hydrogen gas

  • Tube furnaces with alumina tubes are designed for using under vacuum and low pressure < 0.12 atm (absolute pressure)
  • The flow rate for gases should be limited to < 200 SCCM (or 200 ml/min) for reducing thermal shocks to the tube
  • Attention: A two-stage pressure regulator must be installed on gas cylinder to limit the pressure to below 3 PSI for safe operation. Click here to learn the installation of a gas regulator.
  • Vacuum limit definition for all quartz tube furnaces: * Vacuum pressures may only be safely used up to 1000°
