A bench of  programmable furnaces with the maximum temperature of 1200 C  is available. The new addition of high  precision temperature ovens from MTI Corporation is increasing our capability for sample heat treatment . The high purity alumina sample chamber is fitted with electrical heaters placed on three of its walls for temperature uniformity. Gas flow into the chamber is possible and safe because of  the hood placed above the furnace to capture the fumes released by furnaces during high temperature operation.
