Heating Elements

 4 pcs of U-shaped 1800 grade MoSi2  

Temperature Controller

  • PID automatic control via SCR (Silicon Controlled Rectifier) power control with phase angle fired, current limiting resistor.
  • 30 programmable segments for precise control of heating rate, cooling rate, and dwell time.
  • Please click here to learn why SCR is more accurate than SSC (Solid state relay).
  • Built-in over-temperature alarm and protection allow for operation without an attendant.
  • +/- 1 ºC temperature accuracy.
  • RS485 Communication Port
  • Optional:  
    • The furnace may be operated by PC by installing a control module. Please order an MTS-02 control module at extra cost. 
    • If you order the PC control module together with the furnace. We recommend you order a laptop from us to avoid software installation problems. For more information please click here
Processing Tube and Crucible

  • 99.5%High purity Al2O3 Ceramic
  • ID: 50 mm; OD: 40 mm x Length 1000 mm
  • Two fibrous ceramic tube blocks are included for blocking heat radiation from inside the tube. (Ceramic blocks must be fully inserted into the furnace chamber before heating)
  • 4 alumina crucibles of 15mm Dia x 15 mm H are included


Vacuum Sealing Flanges
  • One pair sealing flange with double silicone high-temperature O-ring is included.
  • Two SS needle valves and one dial vacuum gauge are installed with a flange for immediate use.
  • Vacuum pressure can reach 50 mTorr by a quality mechanical vacuum pump and 10^-5 torr by turbo molecular pump. Please click the picture below to see flange assembling details.

Demo Video



MoSi2 heating element is used in high temperatures under an oxidizing atmosphere. During the oxidizing process, the SiO2 protective film is formed again the heating element from melting during sustained use. The MoSi2 heating element must not be used in temperatures between 400 oC and 700 oC for a long time, otherwise, the element will be cremated under the strong oxidizing atmosphere at low temperatures.
