The laboratory electric furnace is a cycle-operated energy-saving electric furnace with fast heating, low empty consumption, and good furnace temperature uniformity. It is used in laboratories, industrial and mining enterprises for metal element analysis and determination and general metal heat treatment.
Sample Preparation - Muffle furnaces are used for heat treatment processes such as annealing, sintering, and calcination to prepare samples for material characterization, phase transformations, or structural analysis.
Powder Metallurgy - They aid in the production of metal and ceramic powders, including processes like powder sintering, debinding, and metal-ceramic composites fabrication.
Industrial and Manufacturing
Heat Treatment - Muffle furnaces are employed for various heat treatment processes in industries, including tempering, hardening, and stress relieving of metal components to enhance their mechanical properties.
Glass and Ceramics Production - They are used for glass melting, glass annealing, ceramic firing, and other processes involved in the production of glassware, ceramics, refractories, and related products.
Quality Control and Testing
Ashing and Residue Analysis - Muffle furnaces aid in determining the amount of ash and organic/inorganic residues in samples, often used in environmental analysis, food testing, and material purity assessment.
Loss on Ignition (LOI) Testing - They are employed to measure the percentage of volatile components, such as water and volatile organics, in various materials, including minerals, soils, and polymers.
Laboratory Composition Facilities
Organic and Inorganic Chemistry - Muffle furnaces are used for various chemical reactions, including organic synthesis, catalyst preparation, and thermal decomposition of compounds.
Gravimetric Analysis - They assist in quantitative analysis techniques that involve precise measurement of mass changes during thermal processes, such as determination of moisture content or volatile components.
