1500C Atmosphere Controlled Quenching Furnace with 80 mm OD Alumina Tube - OTF-1500X-80-VTQ

Please email for lead time
Item Number: OTF1500XVTQ
Transported by LTL Freight (Truck)


Upgrade to Eurotherm 3000 series
OTF-1500X-80-VTQ is a split vertical quenching tube furnace with an 80 mm OD alumina tube, which is designed for quenching samples from high temperatures ( Max. 1500°C) into an ice water bath or quenching oil to study material phase transitions and microstructures.
It is also compatible with air-sensitive samples to heat and quenches in oxygen and the water-free environment with an MTI gas purification and circulation system (as shown in the main image). 
(Auto electromagnetic sample hanger is added since 07/21/2016)    (Manual gate valve was upgraded to an electric one since 6/26/2017 )
