Upgrade to Eurotherm Temperature controller
OTF-1200X-S-5 is a UL certifiable compact and energy-saving (3000W power consumption) split tube furnace with a max. 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 rubber hose connection allows heating sample in the vacuum or flowing gas. The built-in precision temperature controller can provide up to 30 segments of heating and cooling steps with +/- 1 °C accuracy. The furnace can anneal wafer up to 4 "diameter.     (02/06/17 change model# from OTF-1200X-5S to OTF-1200X-S-5)

Optional Hinged Type Flange at extra cost

  • One pair of SS 304 vacuum flange with double high-temperature silicone O-ring is Included. (With support fixture) (click pic left for detail).
    • KF25 port is built-in right side flange to connect a vacuum pump.
    • Vacuum gauge, gas inlet valve, and spare 1/4 thermal couple 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 achieve MAX.1200°C (Pic 1)
  • Option 2:   Hinged type flange for easy sample loading( Pic 2-3, click pic 3 to order )
  • Option 3: optional Quartz blocks and optional Quartz Boat are easy to build clean and high-vacuum system. 
  • Option 4: A second temperature as a monitor can be added with additional cost applied. ( Pic 4)

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 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 10mbar) digital vacuum gauge with a wide range between 3.8x10-5 to 1125 Torr. Aside from greater measurement precision, this gauge reduces 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
  • Heating furnace is available for spare and replacement ( click on the right most picture below).
  • You may order flange support to avoid tube rotating ( click Pic below right )

Application Notes & Warning

  • Tube furnaces with quartz tubes are designed for use under vacuum and low pressure < 0.2 bars / 3 psi / 0.02 MPa. Vacuum pressures may only be safely used up to 1000°C The flow rate for gases should be limited to<200 SCCM (or 200ml/min) for reducing thermal shocks to the tube.
  • 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.
  • How to set up a ceramic tube and vacuum flange for MTI tube furnaces.
  • For safety, you may consider putting the small tube furnace inside a fume hood. ( click picture left to see )
