The cylindrical usable space of the laboratory furnace is surrounded by the heating elements and insulation material. The heated chamber is integrated into the water cooled vessel. As a result of the small volume, the LHT is ideal for small samples and requires minimal operating space.
The system is supported by a single frame platform which supports the furnace and electronic cabinet containing the software controls. Casters are attached to the supporting platform, which allows the whole system to move easily. For universities and industrial research laboratories, the LHT series is a perfect fit for such operating areas.
The small overall dimensions and simple operation result in a cost effective system without any performance loss in temperature uniformity or atmospheric quality. Additionally, the cylindrical design is best suited for overpressure heat treatment processes. Upon request, the system can be equipped with a suitable locking device and all necessary equipment for safe overpressure operations up to 100 bar.
The metallic LHT models are based on heating elements and radiation shields constructed of tungsten or molybdenum for a maximum temperature of 2200 °C and 1600 °C, respectively. The radiation shields serve to insulate the heat of the heating elements from the water cooled vessel. The metallic LHT systems provide the highest possible atmospheric purity and best final vacuum level. With a turbomolecular pump in combination with a pre-pump, the working vacuum can reach the high vacuum region. An ultra high vacuum configuration is possible upon request.
