Germany’s Linn High Therm has added to its range of laboratory furnaces. The company is offering the VMK furnace for temperatures up to 1800°C as well as the VMK-S and VMK-Vac options suited for up to 1200°C. Applications include brazing, annealing, ashing, tempering, sintering, reducing, pyrolysis etc.
Special features of the furnaces are said to include stainless steel housings for use in corrosive environments, easy operation, fast heating and fast cooling cycles. Fibre insulation is used for lab and high temperature furnaces (VMK) with a heat resistant gas-tight muffle insert (1.4841/Inconel). A water cooled door flange enables protective gas and/or vacuum operation (VMK-Vac) in case of protective gas/vacuum furnaces (VMK-S).
Linn standard laboratory furnaces are available in sizes 1 – 25 l and 0.6 – 5.0 kW.
