End Loading Tube Furnace
Data Sheet

Applications for this furnace include:
  • Annealing.
  • Brazing.
  • Melting.
  • Sintering.
  • Heat Treating.

The furnace is rated for a maximum operating temperature of 2000 Centigrade (4082 Fahrenheit) and will operate in vacuum, inert atmospheres, or Nitrogen.

Generally, the basic furnace system includes the following components:
  • Furnace Assembly
  • Power Supply
  • Heat Zone
  • Evacuation System
  • Inert Gas System

Ceramic Muffle Tube Kits are available for oxidizing/corrrosive atmospheres. Vertical mount is also available.

Furnace Assembly

The chamber is double walled, 304L stainless steel and is electropolished to attain the highest vacuum quality. The power feed throughs, covers, and access lid are all nickel plated copper construction. Ports are incorporated in the chamber and/or access lid for a sight window, thermocouples, or an optical pyrometer.

Heat Zone

The element and insulation are high grade graphite. Heat Zone sized range from 2" ID to 6" ID x up to 48" long with a muffle tube. Without the muffle tube, the size ranges from 2" ID to 12" ID x up to 48" long. Other sizes are available upon request.

Power Supply

Power supplies can be supplied with any of the following characteristics: Single (1) or three (3) phase, 208, 380, or 480 volts, and 50 or 60 hertz. A typical power supply incorporates the following components: Stepdown tranformer, SCR power controller, circuit breaker, contactor, pushbuttons, and indicator lights. All components are wired and housed in a free standing cabinet.

Temperature Control

Depending on the customer's requirements, OXY-GON INDUSTRIES, INC. can incorporate as a part of the furnace system the programmer/controllers, recorders, and temperature control devices (i.e. thermocouple, optical pyrometer, or power transducer).

Pumping System

Manual through fully automatic (PLC control) pumping systems can be provided for the range of 10-20 Millitorr (rough vacuum with mechanical pump only) through 10 -10 Torr (cryo and Ion pumps). Our typical standard system is semi-automatic and consists of a diffusion pump, mechanical pump, the necessary valving, and a vacuum gauge controller. The system will consistently operate in the 10-5/ 10-6 Torr range.

Inert Gas/Nitrogen System

To Allow operation using inert gases or Nitrogen, a kit which includes inlet/outlet valves and a pressure/ vacuum gauge is supplied as well as a glovebox interface kit.
