FCT - Model Type FH I - Horizontal Loading High-Temperature Vacuum Sintering Furnace
Due to their induction heating, inductive heated high-temperature furnaces are particularly used when large furnace volumes and working temperatures of up to 2500°C or more are needed. The constant release of energy of the induction-heated graphite susceptor enables the achievement of excellent uniformity of temperature even at temperatures of more than 2500°C.
The higher investment costs for such furnaces in comparison to resistance-heated furnaces are compensated by a longer life cycle of this furnace type. In particular cases, these technically sophisticated furnaces can be conceptualized and optimized in close collaboration with the end-user and can also be adjusted to individual tasks.
