Upgrade to Eurotherm Temp. Controller
OTF-1700X-UL is UL/TUV standard split-able alumina tube furnaces with MoSi2 Heating Elements. The furnace can accomodate 60mm O.D high-quality alumina tubes along with a pair of smart stainless steel vacuum sealing flanges that features needle valves and vacuum gauge. Such configuration allows sample heat treatment under vacuum or flowing gas conditions up to 1700°C. The precise temperature controller can provide 30 segments of heating and cooling with +/- 1°C accuracy.

    Application Notes

    Click here to learn more about the installation of a gas regulator

    • NEVER open the furnace lid at temperature >100°C, doing so may thermoshock the processing tube and cause cracks. 
    • The tube furnaces with alumina tube are designed for using under vacuum and low pressure < 0.02 MPa / 0.2 Bar/ 3 PSI 
    • Never use graphite crucible in alumina tube.
    • Attention: A two stage pressure regulator must be installed on gas cylinder to limit the-the pressure to below 3 PSI for safe operation. Click here to learn the installation of a gas regulator. 
    • Never heat the furnace while the gas release valve is closed and a positive pressure condition exists within the furnace chamber. The pressure gauge must be used to closely monitor the chamber condition at all times during the heating process; please open the gas release valve immediately once the chamber pressure has reached over 3 PSI to prevent unforseeable damages.
    • .The flow rate for gases should be limited to < 200 SCCM ( or 200ml/min )
    • Vacuum limit definition for all alumina tube furnaces: * Vacuum pressures may only be safely used up to 1500°C
