Vacuum Heated Pressing Furnace up to 1000C with 4" Quartz Tube - OTF-1200X-VHP4

Please email for lead time
Item Number: OTF1200X4VHP
Transported by LTL Freight (Truck)

The OTF-1200X-VHP4 is designed for making dense compound materials under both vacuum and high pressure, and/or bounding multi-layer wafer together under a pressure up to 5 metric tons.    It is integrated with a split vertical tube furnace with a vacuum-sealed 4" quartz tube and  20T electric hydraulic press, as well as one set of 0.5" ID  graphite pressing, die.   The furnace can be heated up to 1000ºC using a temperature controller with 30 programmable segments. Water-cooled flanges facilitate a vacuum level up to 10E^-5 Torr via the use of an optional turbomolecular pump.


Max. Pressure

5 metric tons ( 10 MPa on pressure gauge ) limited by supporting structure

Electric Hydraulic  Pump

  • Built-in an electric hydraulic pump with Max. load capability of 20 metric tons.
  • Built-in digital pressure gauge which automatically cut off electrical pump power at setting pressure.
  • Cylinder size 25 mm in diameter.
  • Bottom cylinder (piston) Maximum traveling distance: 15mm
  • Please click on the left picture for details.

Vertical Furnace


  • Splittable vertical furnace heated by Ni-Cr-Al resistance wire
    • Max. working Temp>           1000oc < 60 minutes
    • Max. Heating Rate:            < 10oC/minute
    • If increasing the working temperature to 1200oC, may choose OTF-1500X furnace
  • 30 segment programmable controller with +/-1ºC accuracy
  • RS485 port installed for remote PC operation (Pls click here to order software - EQ-MTS02-Y at extra cost )
  • Power consumption: 2200W
  • Power input: 208 - 240VAC, 50/60 Hz single phase
  • Note:  MTI reserves the right to update the product with better functions without notice        

Heating Zone

  • Heating Zone Length: 12" (300mm)
  • Constant temperature zone: 100mm

Quartz Tube & Sealing Flange

Option Vacuum Pump
  • Max. achievable vacuum level: 10E^-4 Torr by turbo pumping station (EQ-PAC-LD turbo pumping system with powerful backing pump, please don't use small pumps ) 
  • Or 10^-2 torr by a mechanical pump.
  • Please click on pictures below to choose a vacuum pump at extra cost.

High-Temperature Pressing Die Set 
  • One set graphite supporting rod (One top & one bottom) is built in. ( bottom left picture )
  • One set of 0.5" ID  graphite die are included for immediately use. ( bottom central picture)
  • The dies kit is usually made of high purity graphite with max. working pressure of 50 MPa
  • The graphite pressing die gets broken easily and is consumable, please click on the central photo below to order extra sets. We can also provide customized die sets upon customer request at extra cost
  • Mica spacers are used to adjust the height of die sets (while providing heat insulation). Please click on the bottom right picture below to order spares.( bottom right photo )
  • The ID( inner diameter ) of the die set must be taken into consideration when using the hydraulic press to compress the sample. For example, the graphite dies set with an ID of 0.5" can only withstand a maximum pressure around ~0.6 Metric Ton from the press to maintain its structural integrity.
