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 […]

Understanding the Basics of Creep Test Furnaces

Creep tests are carried out on alloy samples to ascertain their physical properties at standard operating temperatures. Simply put, a sample is heated to a stable temperature (dependent on the material) above 300°C. In order to exert a longitudinal force on the alloy’s grain structure, a stress is then applied to the sample. The sample […]
