Hi Throughput Quenching Furnace (1350C Max.) With Glove-Box - GSL-1350X-4-VGB


Please email for lead time
Item Number: GSL-1350X-4-VGB
Transported by LTL Freight (Truck)
GSL-1350X-4-VGB is that four vertical quenching tube furnaces joint with the one atmosphere controlled glove box. The integrated purification system is able to reduce the oxygen and humidity to <1ppm.  This helps protect samples from moisture and oxygen exposure during the preparation process.  Four small tube furnaces with 25mm OD x 22mm ID alumina and sealed flange are installed under the bottom of the love box.   Users can vertically load the material into the furnace tubes without exposure samples to the oxygen or moisture. The auto electromagnetic sample release mechanism is used to hang/release the sample in/from the hot zone for heat treatment/quenching. The SS304 quenching chamber at the bottom of the furnace is also airtight which ensures a quenching sample from high temperature ( Max. 1350°C) into oil rapidly under inert gas. It is an ideal tool to study the microstructure of oxygen & moisture sensitive materials at high throughput

SPECIFICATIONS

System Structure

  • The air-tight joint between the four furnace tubes and glovebox to protects the sample from oxidation in the preparation.
  • Vertical loading of four samples inside the glove box. An electromagnetic release mechanism from the top flange can release the sample into the quenching chamber at the bottom.
  • The electric gate valve at the bottom of the tube can isolate the heating chamber from the quenching chamber and open for sample drop when quenching is needed.
  • Both Electromagnet sample release flange and the bottom gate valve are with water cooling jackets which help protect Viton sealing gaskets from over-heated.

Input Power

  • AC 208-240V Single Phase, 50/60 Hz
  • 1.5 KW (for glove box); 2.5 KW (for four furnaces)
  • Total:  4.0 KW
Glove-Box

  • The gas purification station is integrated to ensure a low O2 & H2O environment (<1ppm) in the glove box.
  • Case Material: Stainless steel 304 with 3 mm thickness
  • Chamber dimension: 1200 mm L x 740 mm W x 900 mm H
  • Openable front window panel (tempered glass, 8 mm thick)  for easy device loading
  • Please Click Picture left for detail specification

Electromagnet Release &
Quenching Media Tank



  • 4 sets of Electromagnet Auto-drop Mechanism are installed for sample release under an atmosphere controlled environment.
  • Hinged plate with a hook & cable can hang the sample in the hot zone for heat treatment.
  • Hinged plate releases when the electromagnet is powered off. Then the sample falls into the quenching tank.
  • Rings attached to the top flange for hanging the quartz block to prevent heat dissipation.
  • Improved top flange design allows easy sample reload without uninstalling all parts of the flange.
  • The bottom flange is connected with a 4" gate valve ( electrically operated ) via CF-100 adaptor.
  • Four gate valves are connected to quenching tank

Application Notes


Click here to learn how to install a gas regulator.

  • The tube furnaces with mullite tube are designed for use under vacuum and low pressure < 0.02 Mpa / 0.2 Bar/ 3 PSI 
  • Never use graphite crucible in an alumina tube.
  • 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.
  • Never heat the furnace while the gas release valve is closed. The pressure gauge must be used to closely monitor the chamber condition at all times during the heating process; please open the gas release valve immediately once the chamber pressure has reached over 3 PSI to prevent unforeseeable damages.
  • The flow rate for gasses should be limited to < 200 SCCM ( or 200ml/min )
  • Vacuum limit definition for all mullite tube furnaces: * Vacuum pressures may only be safely used up to 1300°C
