Deltech controlled atmosphere furnaces in Earth and Planetary Science research

Make a virtual visit to Dr. Philip Skemer’s lab at the department of Earth and Planetary Sciences at Washington University in Saint Louis, you’ll see a Deltech 1600 deg C controlled atmosphere horizontal tube furnace system featuring an integrated vacuum assist module, water cooled tube seals, and an integrated gas mixing system. On his webpage, Dr. Skemer provides information on other available equipment, biographical information and current research interests, and an invitation to graduate study. Check it out!

More about Deltech controlled atmosphere furnaces…

The first Deltech controlled atmosphere furnace was a vertical tube model designed for NASA for use in analyzing lunar rock samples. Today Deltech controlled atmosphere furnace models include vertical tube, horizontal tube, combination vertical/horizontal tube orientation designs, combination bottom loading/tube designs, bottom loading vertical tube, and atmosphere envelope furnaces. Our tube furnaces are available for use at sustained operating temperatures of 1600, 1700, 1800, and 2000 degrees centigrade. Atmosphere envelopes are available for use at sustained operating temperatures of 1600, 1700, and 1800 degrees centigrade, and in front load, bottom load, and top hat configurations. We can manufacture atmosphere envelopes in most any size and configuration required. All Deltech controlled atmosphere furnaces are available with vacuum assisted evacuation modules. For tube units, ourĀ  water cooled tube seals feature easily removable end plates that can be supplied with special fittings such as a hook to suspend a platinum wire and sample basket. Plate removal allows for easy access to the tube interior without requiring removal of the seal itself.
