Upgrade to Eurotherm 3000 series
OTF-1200X-4-C4-SL is a special dual-tube CVD system designed for coating thin film on the metal foil, especially for preparing flexible electrodes on metallic foil on new generation energy research. Fast heating and cooling can be achieved by sliding the furnace. Please refer to the Operations Instructions section to see the operations of the furnace:
  • A dual quartz tube:100mm Dia. exterior tube and suspended by 80 mm Dia. interior tube. Metallic foil (Graphene Growth Substrate) will be wrapped around the inside tube surface for CVD reaction. 
  • The flanges for the dual tube, allow reactive gasses to flow between two tubes ( 10mm space ), and the inert gas flow inside the tube for cooling.
  • 4 gas channels controlled by 4 separate digital MFCs
  • The vacuum pump is included with a KF25 adapter and pipe for plug and play
  • A sliding rail is installed on the bottom of the furnace, which allows for fast heating or cooling by sliding the furnace from one side to the other side.
  • One slide-stopping clamp is included for holding the position of the furnace.
Both the heating zone and vacuum system are selectable: Single or dual heating zone; High-Speed Oilless Dry Vacuum Pump - VBS-M1 or Two-Stage Mechanical Pump - VBS-ACP15.

Temperature Controller
  • PID automatic control with 30 programmable segments for precise control of heating rate, cooling rate, and dwell time.
  • Built-in over-temperature alarm and protection allow for operation without any attendant.
  • Over-temperature protection and alarm allow for operation without attendant(s).
  • +/- 1 ºC temperature accuracy.
  • RS485 Communications Port.
    • Advanced Temperature Control (Optional)
    • MTS02-Y Temperature control software kit (for YD518P series controllers) + 15" laptop package is available at the options bar. Click for detailed information about the MTS02-Y software kit. 
    • You may upgrade the temperature controller to the Eurotherm 3504 Temperature Controller which is fully compatible with LabVIEW. This package includes a Eurotherm 3504 programmer, a communication cable (RS485 - USB), and a software CD.

Vacuum Pump Station and valves

Water Cooling Function

  • Water cooling on the flange is mainly for cooling down the o-ring inside the flange to ensure the best-sealed chamber at high temperature:
  • Water cooling flanges require >= 10L/M water flow.
  • You may use tap water as the coolant, but we strongly suggest you use a recirculating water chiller for environmental considerations. Please click the thumb left to order the water chiller at extra cost
  • Furnace: 550 x 380 x 520mm
  • Bottom mobile case x 2: 600 x 600 x 600mm (one for gas mixing station and the other for vacuum pump)
  • Shipping Weight: ~800 lb
  • Shipping by freight with three pallets

One-year limited manufacturer's warranty (Consumable parts such as processing tubes, O-rings, and heating elements are not covered by the warranty, please order replacements at related products below). 
  • CE Certified
  • NRTL (UL61010) or CSA certification is available upon request at extra cost. 
Application Notes

Click here to learn the installation of a gas regulator
  • Tube furnaces with quartz tubes are designed for use under vacuum and low pressure < 0.2 bars / 3 psi / 0.02 Mpa
  • 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.
  • The flow rate for gasses should be limited to < 200 SCCM (or 200 ml/min) for reducing thermal shocks to the tube
  • Vacuum limit definition for all quartz tube furnaces: * Vacuum pressures may only be safely used up to 1000°C
  • Click here to learn How to set up a quartz/ ceramic tube and vacuum flange for the MTI Tube furnace.
  • One slide-stopping clamp is included for holding the position of the furnace.
  • After CVD, the graphene must be transferred from the metal catalyst to another substrate for most applications. By using the graphene transfer tape,
  • Fast sample cooling can be achieved by sliding the heating chamber away. Please wear protective gear such as heat resistant suit & gloves if you intend to do so. DO NOT TOUCH THE TUBE SURFACE WHEN IT IS HOT!
