1200C Max Sliding Tube Furnace (80mm OD) with Flanges for Fast Heating / Cooling - OTF-1200X-80-SL

In stock
Item Number: OTF1200XSL80
Transported by LTL Freight (Truck)


Upgrade to Eurotherm 3000 series
OTF-1200X-80-SL is a slideable tube furnace with 3" IDx55" L Quartz tube and flanges and a maximum working temperature up to 1200°C. One pair of sliding rails is installed on the bottom of the furnace to allow sliding the furnace from one side to another to achieve max. heating and cooling rates up to 100°C/min. For the fastest healing, the furnace may be pre-heated to the desired temperature and then be slide to the sample's position. As for fastest cooling, the furnace can be slide to another side after sample heating is completed. Moreover, the heating and cooling rates may reach 15°C/s under vacuum or inert gasses. This furnace provides an alternative for rapid thermal processing at the lowest cost.


Furnace Structure

  • Double-layer steel structure with dual air cooling fans 
  • One pair of sliding rails are installed on the bottom of the furnace, which allows the furnace to be manually moved from side to side
  • Vacuum flanges and a digital vacuum gauge are installed for immediate use.
  • Sliding rail length is about 1200mm, the furnace can slide 600 mm distance


Voltage AC 208-240V Single Phase, 50/60 Hz

  7°C/sec (250°C - 350°C);
  4°C/sec (350°C - 500°C);
  3°C/sec (350°C - 550°C);
  2°C/sec (550°C - 650°C);
  1°C/sec (650°C - 800°C);
0.5°C/sec (800°C - 1000°C);
Cooling Rate:
15°C/sec (1000 - 950°C);
10°C/sec (950°C - 900°C);
7°C/sec (900°C - 850°C);
4°C/sec (850°C - 750°C);
2°C/sec (750°C - 600°C);

1°C/sec (500°C - 400°C);
0.5°C/sec (400°C - 300°C);
The max heating and cooling rate is achieved by pre-heat one side of processing tube to the target temperature and then slide the furnace to the other side. You may choose to place the sample in the pre-heat area or not.

Temperature Controller

  • PID automatic control with 30 programmable segments with +/ - 1°C accuracy
  • Built-in over-temperature alarm and protection allow for operation without an attendant.
  • Two K-type thermal couples are included.  One is built in the furnace to control furnace temperature, and another inserted into the tube to monitor sample real temperature profile.
  • One NIST certified thermometer is included to connect to the thermal couple inside the tube. the meter has RS485 Interface with Windows Software which can record temperature profile by PC.
  • PC control module is included
  • Advanced Temperature Control (Optional)

 Vacuum Flanges

  • Stainless steel vacuum flanges are installed on both ends of the tube with heavy duty support. 
    • Right flange: flange, fittings for the vacuum gauge are included. The bellow, KF25 adapter, KF25 clamp are not included. 
    • Left flange: one needle valve and 1/4" thermocouple feed-through and digital vacuum gauge.
    • An 24" length x 1/4" Dia. K-type thermocouple (included) connected to an Omega temperature calibrator (included) will be inserted through this flange to monitor the heating and cooling rates of the sample's position during furnace sliding.

    Application Notes

    Click here to learn the installation of a gas regulator

    • Tube furnaces with quartz tubes are designed for use under vacuum and low pressure <  0.2 bars / 3 psi / 0.02 MPa
    • Attention: A two-stage pressure regulator must be installed on the gas cylinder to limit the pressure to below 3 PSI for safe operation. Click here to learn the installation of a gas regulator.
    • The flow rate for gasses should be limited to < 200 SCCM (or 200 ml/min) for reducing thermal shocks to the tube
    • Vacuum limit definition for all quartz tube furnaces: * Vacuum pressures may only be safely used up to 1000°C

    • If you need a faster cooling jar please click the picture below to order a Portable Spot Air Cooling Conditioner. 
    • Warning:   Fast sample cooling can be achieved by sliding the heating chamber away. Please wear protective gears such as heat resistant suit & gloves if you intend to do so. DO NOT TOUCH THE TUBE SURFACE WHEN IT IS HOT
