3 Things You Should Know about Furnace Exhaust Systems

Thermal processes generate various particulates and gases which may be harmful to technicians in the working environment. Furnace exhaust systems are used to vent these by-products from the heating chamber to the outside air. Typically, this is done continuously while the furnace is operational to maintain an optimal working atmosphere, and throughout any programmed cooling […]

What is an Oscillating Motion Furnace?

Oscillating motion furnaces allow for agitation of melts before crystal growth. The design of oscillating motion furnaces means that furnace inclination can be adjusted regularly in addition to the variation of oscillation frequency and amplitude and the rotation of the furnace to a vertical position. What are Oscillating Motion Furnaces Used For? At Deltech, we […]

When to Use a Horizontal Tube Furnace?

One of the easiest ways to categorise thermal processing equipment is by configuration. It is not uncommon to classify furnaces by application (i.e., pharmaceutical ovens), or even by specific certifications (i.e., ISO 6245-accredited), but using the general shape and orientation of the heating chamber is the preferred naming convention. This is for simplicity’s sake, as […]
