High pressure multigas furnace HMO
The high-pressure multi-gas sintering furnace HMO allows heat treatment of materials under different atmospheres and enhanced pressures. It covers the range from sintering rods for crystal growth to maintaining phases which are only stable at higher pressures. Besides that, it can be used to retreat materials after crystal growth at high pressures up to 150 bar and at temperatures up to 1000°C.
The furnace is equipped with a special alloy tube offering an inner diameter of 15 mm and a heating zone of 200 mm with a low temperature deviation. Greater tube dimensions are easily realizable on request. The furnace setup with separated process and heating chambers allows the usage of almost any agressive media and guarantees a long life span of the heating elements. Several security mechanisms assure the correct operation of the furnace.
Following gases can be used:
- Forming gas N2/H2; Ar/H2
- Further gases on request
