Lindberg/MPH Ships Box Furnace with Retort to a Canadian Laboratory

Lindberg/MPH announced the shipment of a box furnace with retort to a laboratory in Canada. The box furnace will be used to test parts in a hydrogen atmosphere. The atmospheric retort allows for uniform heating and less chance of contamination within the work chamber.

The temperature range for this laboratory box furnace is 100°C to 1200°C and the customer will run it at a maximum temperature of 1050°C The work chamber dimensions are 10.75” wide x 23.75” deep x 11.25” high. The lab furnace has individual heating elements at chamber top, bottom and sides for uniform heat distribution.

This box furnace utilizes Moldatherm® ceramic fiber insulation to allow rapid heat-up, recovery and cool-down rates. High temperature insulation is used to minimize heat loss and improve temperature control. The inlet atmosphere is controlled through a flowmeter and nitrogen is used to purge the chamber before the introduction of hydrogen.

“This box furnace with atmospheric retort has undergone CSA certification to ensure the quality and safety of the equipment for the customer.” ~ Jason Dobberstein, Application Engineering Manager

Unique features of this Lindberg/MPH laboratory furnace include:

  • Temperature controller has digital readout and offers 10 programs

  • Overtemperature control

  • Insulated door plug

  • Hydrogen and nitrogen flowmeters

  • Electric atmosphere burnoff

  • CSA certification

  • Patented Moldatherm® heating element modules

  • Long-life, energy efficient heating elements

  • Long-life Platinel® II thermocouple(s) with 10’ compensated lead wire and polarized plug
