Graphite Resistance Furnace

Commissioned in June of 2005, this inert atmosphere furnace was designed and built in-house with a working payload space of 93″ wide x 120″ deep x 158″ high and has a maximum operating temperature of 2,200oC. The graphite hot zone features Composite Rigid Board Insulation, C/C Fixtures and Heat Shields, which were all manufactured by Carbon Composites, Inc.

The insulation is a multi-layer composite/foil-faced rigidized carbon felt supported within the hot zone by a thermally expanding Carbon/Carbon
I-beam cage. All penetrations include C/C protective liners. The door shiplap areas are covered by foil-encapsulated C/C stepped “U” channels.

We welcome customer visits to view our uniquely designed furnace hot zones.
