1700°C Rocking Tube Furnace with 60mm OD Alumina Processing Tube - GSL-1700X-RC

Please email for lead time
Item Number: GSL-1700X-RC
Transported by LTL Freight (Truck)
GSL-1700X-RC is a high-temperature rocking tube furnace up to 1700ºCThe processing tube is made of a 2" ID alumina tube. The rocking mechanism can drive the furnace swing +/- 45º  from right to left at variable speed.   It is designed for processing materials under controlled atmosphere gas at high temperatures to achieve more uniform composition.



  • Double-layer steel casing with air cooling to keep the case temperature < 60oC.
  • High purity fibrous alumina chamber with max energy saving.
  • Alumina tube, vacuum flange, gauge & valves are included.
  • 1800 grade MoSi2 Heating Elements allows 1700C operation
  • Precision temperature control with +/- 1oC accuracy


  • AC 208 - 240V 50/60Hz, single-phase
  • 3.0 KW (20A breaker required)

Working Temperature

  • Max. Temperature: 1700 °C  (< 2 hr )
  • Continuous working temperature: 1600°C
  • Max. Heating Rate: 10°C /min

Temperature Control

(optional Eurotherm)

  • One FA-YD518P-AG temperature controller is included.
  • Proportional–integral–derivative control (PID control) and auto-tune function
  • 30 segments programmed with ramping, cooling and dwelling steps
  • Built-in over-temperature alarm and thermocouple failure alarm
  • +/- 1 ºC temperature control accuracy
  • THE Default RS485 PC port for PC operation and operation software is included.
  • You may upgrade the temperature controller to the Eurotherm 3000 Series Temperature Controller with +/- 0.1 ºC accuracy.

Heating Zone
  • Heating Zone Length: 12" (300mm)
