Application Notes
  • The tube furnaces with alumina tubes are designed for use under vacuum and low pressure <  / 0.2 Bar/ 3 PSI 
  • Never use a graphite crucible in an alumina 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.
  • The flow rate for gases should be limited to < 200 SCCM ( or 200ml/min )
  • Vacuum limit definition for all alumina tube furnaces: * Vacuum pressures may only be safely used up to 1500°C
