1100 ºC Max. Hybrid Compact Crystal Grower For Both CZ & Bridgman w/ Atmosphere Control - OTF-1200X-SCB

Please email for lead time
Item Number: OTF-1200X-SCB
OTF-1200X-SCB is a compact crystal grower for both CZ and Bridgeman methods up to 1100°C. The precision pulling & rotation mechanism is built on a compact two-zone vertical tube furnace with 2" quartz tube and vacuum-sealed flange, which can pull a single crystal from a melt in the crucible via seed or move down to grow the crystal via a capillary.
Note:  Upgrade to a vacuum-sealed quartz tube and a hermetic pulling mechanism since Jan 5, 2021, which is compatible with volatile materials and growth in a controlled atmosphere. 
Reference article: Advanced Materials - 2023 - Du - Robust Thermal Neutron Detection by LiInP2Se6 Bulk Single Crystals, in which the Hybrid Compact Crystal Grower OTF-1200X-SCB was used for LiInP2Se6 Bulk Single Crystals Growth.

Temperature Control and Profile
  • Two Eurotherm temperature controllers with two K-type thermocouples are builtin with +/- 0.1ºC accuracy.
  • 28 segments programmable with PID adjustable for two heating zone independently.
  • RS485 port and software (iTools) is ready for PC remote control
  •  Note: It is the customer's responsibility to create a suitable thermal gradient for crystal growth.
Vacuum Pump
Gas Purification System
  • 10E-2 torr via dual-stage mechanical vacuum pump (Pic. 2)
  • 10E-5 torr via Turbopump (Pic. 1) 
  • The vacuum pump is optional. Please click here to choose a vacuum pump. 
  • For oxygen-sensitive material, suggest using a recirculating gas purification system ( H2O, O2 < 1 ppm) to replace the turbopump (Pic. 3)
