Atmosphere Controlled Furnaces are used in applications such as manufacturing of metal products, heat-treatment, sintering, melting, aging, thermal testing, powder synthesing and chemical decomposition, where a protective environment is required within the furnaces to achieve the desired products.
MSE’s atmosphere controlled furnaces are available up to 2200°C and with various protective atmospheres including argon, nitrogen, hydrogen (5%) or a gas mixture. Please contact us for hydrogen atmosphere.
Vacuum processes performed at high temperatures ensure that no oxidation occurs which, in turn, results in samples with uniform physical properties.
In standard models, the vacuum values are designed close to 0 Bar. MSE’s atmosphere controlled furnaces offer optionally high vacuum levels up to 2 mbar.
For higher pressures, you may check out “Gas Pressurized Sintering” or “Hot Isostatic Press” products we offer.
