A tube furnace is an electric heating device used to conduct syntheses and purifications of inorganic compounds and occasionally in organic synthesis. Our tube furnaces provide excellent temperature uniformity and are ideal for heating small samples.
Each tube furnace in our range can be modified to meet your exact needs. When specified at the order stage our tube furnaces can be upgraded to include sophisticated digital controllers, programmers, and loggers. Over-temperature protection is also available along with additional safety features such as insulation plugs and radiation shields.
Some of our tube furnaces are designed with an integral work tube while others require a separate work tube. This is an extremely flexible arrangement; work tubes are available in different diameters and materials (quartz, ceramic or metal). When a working tube of an adequate length is used, a standard tube furnace can easily be upgraded for use with a controlled atmosphere or a vacuum.
