HYDROGEN ATMOSPHERE BATCH FURNACE SYSTEM 1450° OR 1700°C (2640° OR 3100°F)

High temperature atmosphere applications can now be processed both efficiently and economically with minimal technical expertise. CM Furnaces has developed a line of “hot wall” batch furnaces with complete process control for temperature and atmosphere without the added expense of “cold wall” vacuum construction. Offered in two temperature ranges and several sizes, these furnaces meet virtually any application requirement where vacuum is not absolutely necessary. Furnaces are complete systems with all features required for operation, bundled into one compact frame with conveniently located controls.

The 1500 Series (to 1450°C/2640°F) and the 1700 Series (to 1700°C/3100°F) are ideal for a variety of applications. Temperature profiles are completely programmable for multiple ramps and soaks. The atmosphere mixing panel allows either pure hydrogen or a mixture of reducing and inert (nitrogen and/or argon) atmospheres. It is even possible to debind/delube and sinter in the same cycle.

With safety our main concern, CM Furnaces put all of our 60 years experience with hydrogen processing into the robust safety system on these furnaces. All aspects of hydrogen usage are monitored with immediate fail safes in place for any situation.
