University of Shanghai ordered the first HKZ furnace of the new generation

Mediated by our new distributor in China, the University of Shanghai ordered the first model of the updated and optimized 2015/2016 generation of our Optical Floating Zone Furnace HKZ.

One main ideas of the new design is the modular set-up concept. A reasonably priced basic model can be upgraded in any direction just by adding or exchanging a few components (i.e. handling up to 300 bar gas pressures, in-situ temperature measuring and many more). In this way, the HKZ furnace becomes an affordable and very versatile, future-proof device.
