Lindberg/MPH Ships a 1500°C Box Furnace to the Education Industry

Lindberg/MPH announced the shipment of a 1500°C heavy duty box furnace to a University. The 1500°C box furnace offers excellent temperature uniformity, rapid response rate, dense load capability, and process repeatability which makes it ideal for testing, research and development, and laboratory applications. The 1500°C box furnace is suited for multiple applications such as annealing, ashing, carbon firing, ceramic firing, hardening, sintering, solution treating, and stress relieving.

The maximum temperature rating of this box furnace is 1500°C and the work chamber dimensions are 16” W x 24” D x 16” H. The box furnace has insulating vestibules and is equipped with a directly hinged, insulated plug door. An internal vent located in the top center of the vestibule aids in dissipating the initial heat surge that occurs when the door is opened.

This box furnace is designed with a few custom features such as a ½” inlet pipe in the rear of the chamber for the use of an inert cover gas, a custom built stand to maintain a 42” height from the floor with locking casters to allow the furnace to be moved to different locations within the facility. The box furnace utilizes a Eurotherm Nanodac programmable controller that offers 2 PID control loops and auto-tune for fast, efficient start up. Standard ethernet communications and a paperless chart recorder were also added.

“For research and development applications temperature uniformity and repeatability are key. The 1500°C box furnace provides both of these important features so it was a perfect choice for our customer.”- Kelley Shreve, Applications Engineer

Unique features of this Lindberg/MPH 1500°C heavy duty box furnace include:

  • High temperature graded insulation
  • Double shell construction
  • Advanced heating element designs
  • Insulated plug door
  • Attractive outer shell design
  • Heavy-duty construction
  • SSR solid-state relay fired heaters
  • Eurotherm Nanodac programmable controller
  • Eurotherm 3216i excess temperature controller connected to backup power disconnect
  • One dual thermocouple assembly
  • Power circuit breaker
  • Adjustable N2 Flowmeter with open/closed solenoid driven by controller
