Carbolite, Hope Valley, UK, has announced a new range of compact split and non-split tube furnaces for laboratory use. The 1200°C E-series tube furnaces are ideal for heating small sample volumes and offer excellent temperature uniformity, states the company.
The furnaces are available with heated lengths of 150, 300, 450 and 600 mm and a maximum tube diameter of 60 mm. Available tube materials are metal, ceramic and quartz. Optional tube adapters allow for the use of varying diameters up to the maximum of 60 mm in the same furnace, offering increased flexibility.
The EST and EVT split tube furnaces are hinged, allowing them to be opened to reduce the cool-down time. In combination with the fast heat up rates, this results in a high sample throughput. The EHC, EZS, EVC and EVZ three-zone models are all available with heated lengths of 450 and 600 mm. The standard slave-control option ensures a longer uniform zone than can be achieved in a single zone furnace.
An easy to use angle adjustment option on the vertical furnaces also allows horizontal and multi-angle configurations.
