At Thermcraft Inc., we take pride in offering a diverse range of lab furnace configurations to cater to the specific needs and requirements of our valued customers. Our three primary configurations—Box, Split Tube, and Solid Tube furnaces—are designed to accommodate a wide variety of applications and experimental setups, providing flexibility and precision in your research and testing endeavors.

Box Furnaces: Box furnaces are characterized by their rectangular or cuboidal chamber shape. They typically have a hinged or lift-off door for easy access to the interior.

This lab furnace configuration is versatile and suitable for a wide range of applications. Their spacious interior and uniform temperature distribution make them ideal for tasks such as annealing, sintering, heat treating, and material testing. The easy access door facilitates loading and unloading of samples or materials.

Split Tube Furnaces: Split tube furnaces feature a cylindrical chamber with a split along its length. The chamber is usually covered with heating elements, and the split allows for easy insertion and removal of samples or sample tubes.

Commonly used for processes involving sample tubes or semi-closed environments, they are excellent for applications like crystal growth, chemical vapor deposition (CVD), and gas-solid reactions. The split design simplifies sample loading and minimizes heat loss when the chamber is opened.

Solid Tube Furnaces: Solid tube furnaces have a continuous cylindrical chamber without any splits. The heating elements are typically embedded within the tube walls for direct and efficient heating.

Solid tube furnaces are suitable for processes requiring a continuous and controlled environment. They are often used in applications such as thermal analysis, pyrolysis, and high-temperature reactions where a sealed chamber is essential to maintain specific atmospheres or prevent contamination. The absence of a split provides better insulation and containment.

Each of these lab furnace configurations offers distinct advantages, and the choice depends on the specific needs of your experiments and research – and most can be used horizontally or vertically. Whether you require a spacious and accessible chamber (Box), a versatile and convenient split design (Split Tube), or a sealed and controlled environment (Solid Tube), Thermcraft Inc. has the right laboratory furnace to meet your requirements. Our commitment to quality and precision ensures that you’ll find the perfect furnace for your laboratory applications, helping you achieve accurate and reliable results in your scientific endeavors.
