Fusion – the future of power controllers

Our Engineering Manager just introduced me to the newest generation of SCR power controllers manufactured by our longtime supplier partner, Control Concepts. These software driven instruments precisely control the amount of power going to the molydisilicide heating elements in Deltech furnace systems. Molydisilicide elements have zero resistance on startup, so amperage must be carefully controlled […]

About Molydisilicide (MoSi2) Heating Elements

Most Deltech furnaces are designed for maximum operating temperatures in the 1500-1800 deg C range and for operation in air, so molydisilicide heating elements are used because of their ability to quickly attain and sustain high temperatures and their affinity for oxidizing atmospheres. Despite their robust appearance they are a fragile, glasslike material with low […]

All Deltech furnace systems are designed and manufactured in the U.S.A, and shipped and installed worldwide.
