The LAB-TEMPTM Range of Laboratory Furnaces and Ovens from Thermcraft
The LAB-TEMPTM range of laboratory furnaces and ovens from Thermcraft are used worldwide by some of the biggest materials testing system manufacturers.
All of the laboratory furnaces and ovens from the LAB-TEMPTM range are constructed with stainless steel exteriors and can be designed to be retro-fitted to existing systems or for new OEM systems.
The furnaces and ovens are designed to work with all types of materials testing systems, including those that perform tensile, creep and fatigue testing.
LAB-TEMPTM laboratory furnaces and ovens are engineered for both vertical and horizontal operation and can be supplied with mounting brackets or stands and ports for atmosphere introduction if required.
This blog post will outline the range of LAB-TEMPTM laboratory furnaces and ovens available from Thermcraft.
LSL-Series Solid Tube Furnaces and LSP-Series Split Tube Furnaces for Temperatures up to 1200°C (2200°F)
These laboratory furnaces are constructed to a high quality and have stainless steel shells like all other furnaces and ovens from the LAB-TEMPTM range. They have vacuum-formed ceramic fiber insulation for reduced heat loss and high temperatures.
The standard models are designed to be ready for most common applications but custom dimensions are also available. The inside diameter of these furnaces range from 0.75 to 6 inches and the heated lengths can be as small as 6 inches to as big as 36 inches. Custom dimensions can also be designed if required.
Options available for these series of furnaces includes the choice of thermocouple and connectors and precise temperature control with optional recording system.
LSL-Series Solid Tube Furnaces and LSP-Series Split Tube Furnaces for Temperatures up to 1700°C (3092°F)
Excellent temperature uniformity and rapid heat up rates are just some of the features of these types of laboratory furnaces. They have prefired insulation to reduce bakeout times and shrinkage and have a well-ventilated terminal area for cooler temperatures.
The standard inside diameter of these furnaces ranges from 2 to 6 inches, and this diameter must be a minimum of half an inch longer than the maximum process tube OD.
The heated lengths range from 4 to 11 inches and the overall length will be 6 inches longer than the heated length unless stated. Thermcraft also manufacture custom sized laboratory furnaces on request.
LBO-Series Box and LBS-Series Split Box Medium Range Laboratory Ovens
The box and split box range of LAB-TEMPTM laboratory furnaces feature long life heating elements and a wide temperature range from -185oC to 425oC. For quick access, there is a latch lock and the seal is made of tight resilient fiberglass.
The standard chamber sizes range from 4 (W) x 4 (D) x 12 (H) inches to 20 (W) x 20 (D) x 28 (H) inches and hand ports and internal lamps are available as options.
