HT 04/16 - HT 450/18

The high-temperature chamber furnaces HT 04/16 - HT 450/18 have proven reliable over many years in laboratory and production. Whether for quartz glass or glass ceramics, for sintering CIM components or for other processes up to a maximum temperature of 1800 °C, these furnaces afford the optimal solution for the sintering process.

High-temperature chamber furnaces can either be insulated with fiber material or lightweight refractory bricks. Furnaces with fiber insulation achieve significantly shorter heating up times because of the low thermal mass. An insulation made of lightweight refractory bricks (see HFL models on page 30), on the other hand, has the advantage of better chemical stability.

HFL 16/16 - HFL 160/17

The HFL 16/16 HFL 160/17 product line is characterized by its lining with robust light weight refractory bricks. Compared with the fiber-insulated models of the HT product line, these furnaces are recommended when high charge weights have to be sintered. In most cases lightweight refractory brick insulation is also significantly more resistant to gas emissions occurring during heat treatment.

Standard equipment like HT models, except:

  • Tmax 1600  °C or 1700  °C
  • Sturdy lightweight refractory bricks and special backing insulation
  • Furnace floor made of lightweight refractory bricks accommodates high charge weights

Gas-Fired Chamber Furnaces up to 1600 °C

HTB 940/17S HTB 645/17

Gas line for natural gas

The gas-fired high-temperature furnaces of the HTB product line are specially developed for applications requiring fast heating up ramps. Gas-fired furnaces are preferred also if inflammable gases are produced in large amounts during the process. A large content of the gas emissions are already burned in the furnace chamber, so that downstream equipment like thermal and catalytic exhaust cleaners can accordingly be downsized. The furnaces are insulated with highly heat-resistant and long-life lightweight refractory brick insulation or fiber materials.

  • Tmax 1600  °C
  • Customized furnace dimensions
  • Powerful, sturdy high-speed burners with pulse control and special flame guidance in the furnace chamber provide for good temperature uniformity
  • Operation with natural gas, propane or liquified gas
  • Fully automatic PLC control of the temperature, including monitoring of the burner function
  • Gas fittings according to DVGW (German Technical and Scientific Association for Gas and Water) with flame monitoring and safety valve
  • Reduction-resistant fiber insulation with low heat storage provides for short heating and cooling times
  • Dual shell housing provides for low outside temperatures
  • Exhaust hood with fittings for further discharge of the exhaust gases
  • PLC control with touch panel as user interface

Additional equipment

  • Automatic lambda control to set the furnace atmosphere
  • Exhaust air and exhaust gas piping
  • Recuperator burners
  • Thermal or catalytic exhaust cleaning systems
  • Process display and documentation via Nabertherm Control Center (NCC)

HT 64/14 LB or LT - HT 1440/17 LB or LT

For charging complex settings we recommend lift-top or lift-bottom furnaces. Also small workparts can be conveniently loaded on different layers. Up to an application temperature of 1500 °C the furnaces are heated by SiC rods (HTC models). For sintering temperatures above 1500 °C these furnaces with molybdenum disilicide heating elements (HT models). Possible potential chemical interaction between the charge and the heating method can also affect the selection of heating system.

The basic furnace comes with one table. Depending on the technical requirements are equipped, a lift-top or lift-bottom version will be the choice. The system can be expanded with one or more changeable tables, either manually or electrically driven. Other additional equipment, like controlled cooling systems to short process cycles provide for tailored solution for individual needs.

  • Tmax 1400  °C or 1500  °C (HTC models with SiC rod heating)
