Typical Heating and Cooling Rate Graph for the TransTemp Tube Furnace
The TransTemp tube furnace has a very low thermal mass, which enables it to quickly heat up to temperature and cool down rapidly. The standard 305mm model with a 37mm inside diameter muffle will reach 1000°C in less than 15 minutes and cool to 600°C in less than 15 minutes.
Typical Uniformity Graph for the TransTemp Tube Furnace
In conventional tube furnaces using packed or porous insulation, the temperature is generally uniform over only the central third of the heated length. Outside this region, the temperature decreases significantly due to heat loss at the ends. In the TransTemp tube furnace, uniform reflection of infrared radiation evenly distributes the heat throughout the entire length of the tube. Because the mirror is uniform, it has uniform radial heat loss. With the ends capped, the TransTemp tube furnace will provide a uniform temperature along 60% of its length.
