Single/Three Zone High Temp. Tube Furnace, up to 1650˚C-MoSi2 Heaters-Split Tube

Categories: Code:
Being able to obtain heat up rates as high as 100 ˚C per minute RCT-AM1-T-1500 and RCT-AM1-O-1650 tube furnace families justify the characteristic of extremely rapid heating devices. Constructed using lightweight KANTHAL SUPER heaters with embedded Molybdenum Disilicide (MoSi2) elements, these tube furnaces are ideal choices for reliable, very accurate and uniform temperature control processes up to 1650 ˚C continuously. These models specialty is that the resistors shape is helical or corrugated resulting to a denser heater structure with improved temperature uniformity and compactness. Equipped as a standard with our advanced remote data acquisition and control system PYROMODULAR and with the addition of an appropriate reaction tube these tube furnaces can be used for many applications requiring high temperature.
  • Closed tube models: Universal vertical and horizontal operation.
  • Split tube models: Preselected vertical or horizontal operation.
  • Hinged split tube or closed tube construction.
  • Maximum Continuous Temperature: 1500 ˚C for closed tube, 1550 ˚C for horizontal split tube and 1650˚C for vertical split tube.
  • Helical or corrugated type MoSi2 resistors. Excellent radial temperature distribution.
  • Extremely high temperature rate. Highly resistant in thermal shock.
  • Extremely low density thermal insulation – remarkably high heat up energy savings.
  • Three zone models available for extended length uniform axial thermal distribution.

Key Features

  • Best available quality KANTHAL® spiral or corrugated shape MoSi2 resistors driven by THERMANSYS® PCC control platform insure furnace long life operation up to 1650 ˚C continuous operation. 
  • Extremely low mass vacuum formed thermal insulation enables high output available for the load and fast heat up rates while significantly contributes to energy savings under daily thermal cycling.

End Gas Sealing Flanges and Manifolds.

THERMANSYS® is providing work-tube End Gas Sealing Flanges for vacuum or pressure conditions.

These flanges are provided with Main Port either with hydraulic thread port or with Clamp Flange (CF) port for gases inlet/outlet- connection to the tubing network. Cooling fluid recirculation compartment is standard and is removable. Up to four peripheral threads are available serving as ports for instrumentation mounting (e.g thermocouples, pressure sensors).

Versions with Clamp Flange (CF) port design provide quick-open loading port and optionally a quartz sight window.

THERMANSYS® End Gas Sealing Flanges are supplied for work tubes diameters from 1΄΄το 3΄΄. Their design allows use with tubes having diameter tolerance ±10%.

Standard versions material of construction is Stainless Steel ASME 304. Optionally for corrosive applications Stainless Steel ASME 316 is available and Aluminum for a light weight solution (recommended for thin wall Quartz tube reactors).

Reaction Tubes.

Several work tube materials to choose from:

  • Dense ceramic Alumina work-tubes for the highest temperature applications.
  • Quartz work-tubes for maximum chemical inertia and for aggressive environments to work under vacuum or low pressure conditions up to 1100 ˚C continuously.
  • KANTHAL® APMTM/APMT metallic (FeCrAl based) work-tubes to serve under vacuum or pressure up to 1250 ˚C.


Mounting Stands.

Assembled and constructed using BOSCH-REXROTH® structural profile systems these stands provide the ideal solution for vertical furnace stand alone positioning plus reactor and instrumentation mounting. Using the commercially available accessories, tubing and cable routing is easy and professionally accomplished. Stands with electronically actuated furnace move-up and down provide a solution for heating zone moving along the reactor length.
