A muffle furnace is specially designed to isolate whatever you are heating from the heat source, thus shielding it from any combustion byproducts. Muffle furnaces can achieve high temperatures while isolating the heated materials in a sealed atmosphere, thereby reducing the chance of cross-contamination between the heat source and the heated materials.

Providing a wide range of applications

They can help scientists and technicians determine the levels of non-volatile material present in a sample and use high temperatures to discover the chemical properties of glass, ceramics, and other materials. These furnaces are useful in many fields of industrial research including bioanalysis, medicine, petrochemicals, pharmaceuticals, plastics, semiconductors, textiles, and others.

Used for heat-treating metals and alloys, they are also helpful when producing superalloys and refractory metals. Other applications include making enamel coatings, melding glass, and soldering and brazing parts.
