Item Number: OTF1200XS5
Transported by LTL Freight (Truck)
OTF-1200X-S-5 is a compact and energy-saving split tube furnace with a max. the working temperature of 1200°C (Since 2016.11.08) and All electric parts are UL / MET / CSA certified. The furnace adopts a 5" (130mm) O.D quartz tube with a pair of stainless steel vacuum sealing flanges. The 1/4" barb fitting for the rubber hose connection allows heating samples in the vacuum or flowing gas.  The temperature controller is seperarated from the furnace with 30 segments of heating and cooling steps with +/- 1 °C accuracy. The furnace can anneal wafer up to 4 "in diameter.   

Furnace Structure
  • Double-layer steel structure.
  • High-purity Al2O3 fibrous insulation with Max. energy saving.
  • High-purity alumina coating on refractory ceramics for longer service life.
  • This furnace can be modified into many special furnaces ( see the bottom application note)

 Left Flange       Right Flange

Optional Hinged Type Flange at extra cost

  • One pair of SS 304 vacuum flange with double high-temperature silicone O-ring and stainless steel protective shield are Included. (click the pictures left for more details).
    • KF25 port is built in the right side flange to connect a vacuum pump.
    • The vacuum gauge, inlet valve, and 1/4 thermocouple feed-through are built-in left side flange.
  • The vacuum level can reach 10-2torr (by a mechanical pump).
  • Option 1:Water cooling 5" flange with Support Fixture,  which allows the furnace to achieve1200°C (Pic 1)
  • Option 2:   Hinged type flange for easy sample loading( Pic.1- 2)
  • Option 3: A second temperature as a monitor can be added with additional cost applied. ( Pic 2)
  • Option 4:For working temp < 500oC, and use it inside the glovebox,  the furnace can short to 500 mm L ( Pic. 3)

Fitting Ports
Optional Parts
  • You may need a vacuum valve at the vacuum port click picture left to order ).
  • You may click the pictures in below to order a furnace with a vacuum pump and a temperature calibration kit.
Pressure Measurement / Monitoring
  • Standard mechanical vacuum gauge measures within a pressure range of -0.1 to 0.15Mpa is included.
  • OPTIONAL: A gas-type independent (above 10 mbar) digital vacuum gauge with a wide range between 3.8x10-5 to 1125 Torr. Aside from greater measurement precision, this gauge reduces the risks of chamber explosions caused by the incorrect reading of gas pressures due to gas-type dependency.   
Optional Insert-able Thermal-couple

  • A K-type insert-able thermocouple can be inserted through the flange to monitor the temperature inside the tube. Click the picture below to order
  • The heating furnace is available for spare and replacement ( click on the right picture below).
  • You may order flange support to avoid tube rotating ( click Pic below right )

  • Furnace with Lid Close: 1100 L x 440 D x 460 H, mm
  • Furnace with Lid Open: 1100 L x 600 D x 700 H, mm
  • Furnace without Tube: 740 L x 440 D x 460 H, mm

Application Notes & Warning

  • Tube furnaces with quartz tubes are designed for use under a vacuum and ambient pressure, < 3 psig. 
    A two-stage pressure regulator for gas cylinder is highly recommended to limit the pressure below 3 psig. Click here to learn the installation of a gas regulator.
  • The working temperature under vacuum is limited to 1000°C
  • The gas flow rate should be limited to 200 SCCM to maintain the uniform temperature zone.
