1200ºC Compact Vacuum Casting System (2 Kg Max) w/ Start-up Kit - EQ-VMCS-1200-LD

In stock
Item Number: VMCS1200
EQ-VMCS-1200 is a vacuum casting furnace, which is capable of melting alloys up to 1200ºC and casting in a mold.  It consists of two chambers, one is a non-hermetic melting chamber and the other is a hermetic vacuum casting chamber. Both of the chambers allow continuous inert gas flow.   A compact footprint (18"x 18") and durable construction make this an ideal instrument to be used in alloy research in laboratory settings.  
(Upgraded to programmable temperature controller from June 12, 6/2021)

  • AttentionA pressure regulator must be installed on your input gas tank ( click picture below to review ) and the output gas pressure set below 3 PSI at all times after opening the gas tank with the gas maintained in a continuous flowing condition. Gas build-up with pressure levels exceeding over 3 PSI may cause irreversible damage to the furnace chamber.  
  • The flow rate for gases should be limited to < 200 SCCM ( or 200ml/min )
