Retort furnace LBVHT 250/20-W with tungsten heating chamber Retort furnace LBVHT 600/24-GR

Retort furnace LBVHT with graphite heating chamber

The LBVHT model series with bottom loading specification are especially suitable for production processes which require either protective or reaction gase atmosphere or a vacuum. The basic performance specifications of these models are similar to the VHT models. Their size and design with electro-hydraulically driven table facilitate charging during production. The retort furnaces are available in various sizes and designs. Similar like the VHT models, these furnaces can be equipped with different heating concepts.

  • Standard furnace sizes between 100 and 600 liters
  • Designed as bottom loading retort furnace with electro-hydraulically driven table for easy and well-arranged charging
  • Prepared to carry heavy charge weights
  • Different heating concepts using
    • Graphite heating chamber up to Tmax 2400  °C
    • Molybdenum heating chamber up to Tmax 1600  °C
    • Tungsten heating chamber up to Tmax 2000  °C
  • Frame structure filled with textured stainless steel sheets
  • Standard design with gassing system for non-flammable protective or reaction gases
  • Automatic gas supply system which also allows for operation with several process gases as additional equipment
  • Gas supply systems for operating with hydrogen or other combustible reaction gases incl. safety package as additional equipment
  • Switchgear and control box as well as gassing system integrated into the furnace housing
  • Further product characteristics of the standard furnace as well as possible additional equipment can be found in the description of the VHT furnaces
