1200C Max 4“ Tube Atmosphere Controlled Vertical Quenching Furnace - OTF-1200X-VTQ-4

Please email for lead time
Item Number: OTF1200XVTQ
Transported by LTL Freight (Truck)
OTF-1200X-VTQ-4 is split Vertical Quenching Tube Furnace with a vacuum-sealed 100mm (4")   diameter quartz tube and liquid quenching tank, which is designed for quenching samples from high temperature ( Max. 1200oC) to ice water or oil to study material phase transition and microstructure.
(Auto electromagnetic sample release flange is added since 07/21/2016)


 Furnace Structure

  • Double-layer steel structure with air cooling to keep case temperature < 65oC
  • Vertical and splittable for easy installation.
  • Liquid quenching tank is connected to 4" quartz tube via a gate valve and allow sample drop to liquid container

Tube Size and Materials

Heating Zone

  • Heating Zone length:   440mm 
  • Constant Temperature:       150 mm ( within+/- 1oC)

Temperature Controllers

  • 30 programmable segments for precise control of heating rate, cooling rate, and dwell time.
  • Built-in PID Auto-Tune function with overheating & broken thermocouple broken protection.
  • Over-temperature protection and alarm allow for operation without attendant(s).
  • +/- 1 ºC temperature accuracy.
  • One K-type thermocouple.
  • RS485 Communications Port.
Electromagnet Sample Release Flange & Quenching
  • Full automatic electromagnet sample release flange
  • Hinged plate hooks the cable, which pulls the sample.
  • Hinged plate drops when the electromagnet powers off. The sample and the cable fall into the quenching tank.
  • Rings are available for hanging the tube block with cables.
  • Bottom flange is connected with a 4" gate valve ( manual operated ) via CF-100 adaptor
  • The gate valve is connected with a quenching media container in size 400 x400 x 200 H ( mm )
  • Caution: You must use ice water or cooled oil as a quenching agent if quenching under vacuum.

    Gas Purification and Circulation

    • EQ-RMP-1 is an automatic recirculating moisture and oxygen purification system, which can provide an environment with moisture and oxygen concentration lower than 1 ppm for MTI's furnaces and gloveboxes. 
    • Two columns of Molecular sieves are Built-in in the system. One is for removing oxygen and another is for removing moisture up to < 1 PPM
    • The automatic pressure control system is built in to keep the pressure at a constant level
    • 6" color PLC touch panel is included which can set and display the humidity and pressure level
    • Oxygen sensors and moisture sensors are included. 
    Hermetic Quenching Tank
    • Hermetic quenching tank is optional for air-sensitive materials, which enables the entire quenching process under atmosphere control
    • Please contact MTI for further inquiries.
