Item Number: OTF1200XIIIHP80


Upgrade to Eurotherm Temp controller( 3 zone)+15" Laptop+ USB Cable
OTF-1200X-III-HP-80 is a high-pressure/ high vacuum split tube furnace with three heating zones. The processing tube is made of a Ni-based superalloy, which offers a solution for heat treatment under both high positive pressure and high vacuum pressure with/without inert gas support to process special compound materials. The furnace can be heated up to a max. 1100°C at 2.5 bar pressure (or 900°C at 80 bars).

    • The Center zone is heated up to 1000 °C
    • Left and right zones remain idle
Heating Element
  • Fe-Cr-Al Alloy doped by Mo
  • Three Omega K-type thermocouples (OD 3 mm) in the furnace

Temperature Control

  • Three precision digital temperature controllers with 30 programmable segments and +/- 1 ºC accuracy
  • Safety protection of over-temperature and broken thermocouples are integrated
  • PC control software is available at an extra cost
  • Eurotherm 3000 controller with +/-0.1°C accuracy is available upon request at the extra cost.

Process Vessel   
  • Made of Nickel-based superalloy GH747(Click to download GH747 nickel-based alloy datasheet)
  • Size: 85 mm OD x 50 mm ID x 1000 mm L
  • Working gasses: O2 and inert gasses such as N2, Ar, and He
  • Small quartz or alumina boat should be used to load the sample inside the tube. Never place the sample directly onto the tube without a crucible, which may greatly shorten the processing tube service-life
  • Warning: Never put the sample inside the tube directly without crucible or isolated foil to avoid sample react with tube alloy.
  • You may use gold or nickel foil to wrap the crucible to minimize the contamination to the pressure vessel.
  • Attention: The processing tube is consumable. Pls click the photo below to order a spare one
Pressure Sensor and Valve

  • A pressure gauge with a range of 0 – 25 MPa and an over-pressure alarm is installed (downstream side)
  • A pressure control valve with a working range of 0.2 – 15 MPa is installed (the upstream side with a 1/4" BSPP venting port)
  • If the measured pressure reaches the high-pressure alarm value, the pressure control valve will be opened until the pressure drops 0.2 MPa (2 bars) below the alarm value
  • The manual pressure relief valve is installed for manual pressure control and relief (the downstream side with 1/4" BSPP gas outlet port)
High-pressure relief valve
  • A safety pressure relief valve is recommended  (the upstream side with 1/4" NPT venting port)
  • Please info us of your application temperature and we will pre-set the release pressure for you.  For example, you need to heat to 800C, the Max working pressure should be 140 bars, we will pre-set the relief valve to 140 bars. 

Flange and Fitting
  • A pair of 63 mm CF-type flanges are included. Please use a torque wrench (optional, not included) to avoid over-tightening the flange bolts.
  • 2 pieces of copper O-rings (99 mm OD x 82 mm ID x 2.2 mm thickness) are included. Please order extra copper O-rings as consumable parts
  • A pair of cooling fans are included for air cooling the flanges
  • One mobile cart with installation holes is included for easy setup and immediate use

Optional Parts
(with extra cost)

  • Please order heavy-duty rotary vane vacuum pump EQ-YTP-50 for low vacuum operation (Pic  #1)
  • If a high vacuum is needed, please use the turbopump station EQ-PV-HVS2 (Pic. #2), which can reach 10-6 torr vacuum
  • Gas flow control system is available upon request (Pic. #3)
  • Please use a torque wrench (optional, not included) to avoid over tightening the flange bolts (Pic. #4)
  • To measure the electric properties of thermoelectric ceramics under high pressure & high temperature, please order alumina fixture and high-pressure electrical feedthrough (10 MPa max) with the furnace at extra cost (Pic.  #5 & #6)
      12   3           4    5    6
  • AC 208 - 240V 50/60Hz, single phase
  • 3.8 KW (25 A breaker required)
Operation Instruction         
Compliance and Warranty
  • CE certified
  • NRTL or CSA certification is available upon request at the extra cost.
  • One year limited warranty for lifetime support
    Safety Notes
  • Ni-based Superalloy ( Waspaloy or equivalent) is a reliable processing tube, which has excellent ductility and tensile property so only creep deformation happens under overpressure before a cracking.
  • Please see pics left to see Ni-based Super-alloy ( Waspaloy or equivalent) processing tube under overpressure test
  • Attention: For the use of flammable, toxic, or corrosive gases, you must contact the MTI engineering group for a consultation to know all the prerequisites and precautionary measures.
