UL/CSA Certification:


Upgrade to Eurotherm 3000 series

KSL-1700X-A1 is a bench-top high-temperature muffle furnace. The furnace consists of high-quality alumina fiber insulation and 1800 grade MoSi2 heating elements and it's controlled by high precision SCR (Silicon Controlled Rectifier) and temperature controller with +/-1 °C accuracy and 30 programmable segments up to 1700 °C (3092 °F). It is an ideal tool for materials annealing and sintering in your research laboratory. 


Furnace construction

  • Double-layer steel structure with air cooling fan to keep the case's temperature below 60°C
  • High purity alumina fiber insulation for max. energy saving
  • 1760 °C (3200 °F) Hi-Purity Alumina Coating inside the chamber for longer service life

Temperature Controller

  • 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
  • Default DB9 PC communication port
  • Eurotherm 3000 programmable controller with software is optional with +/-0.1 oC accuracy
Temperature controller (optional)

  • MTS02-Y Temperature control software kit (for YD518P series controllers) + 15" laptop package is available at the options bar. Click for detail information about the MTS02-Y software kit. 
  • You may upgrade the temperature controller to the Eurotherm  Controller to achieve 0.1ºC accuracy,  which is fully compatible with LabVIEW. This package includes a Eurotherm 3504 programmer, a communication cable (RS485 - USB) and a software CD.

Application Notes
  • Warning: MoSi2 heating element is used in the high temperature under the oxidizing atmosphere. It will form the SiO2  film which can keep the element from being melted. During the oxidizing process, the SiOprotecting film is formed again when the element continues to be used. The MoSi2 heating element must not be used in the temperature between 400 °C and 700 °C for long time, otherwise, the element will be cremated under the strong oxidizing function in the low temperature.
