Gradient furnace is designed to provide a temperature gradient along the length of the heated zones in a tube. Thus, sintering graph of the samples at different temperatures can be created. The gradient furnace is an effective laboratory furnace to study reactions as a function of temperature.
This furnace thermally processes and prepares a series of samples with thermally known thermal backgrounds to measure and examine the effects of heat on physical properties. Samples are placed on the sample tray at certain intervals. Sample tray is placed in the gradient furnace and the target temperature is reached. A thermocouple integrated into the furnace identifies the temperature at which each sample is exposed and records it in its memory by acting on a series of samples.
For a specific feature of the samples, the temperature-dependent relationship is handled for a short time. You can examine the effects of temperature on properties such as shrinkage, sintering, density, porosity, absorption, surface area, colour, degree of crystallization, phase development, electrical properties, magnetic properties and others.

For the maximum life of the furnace and the longer use of the furnace equipment, we recommend that the heating rate of 10°C/min should not exceed. If the alumina tube will be used, we recommended that the heating rate of 7 °C/min should not exceed. Flammable and explosive products must not be used in the furnace.
Gradient furnace is able to make a condensation chart of all samples, up to 1400°C. Please contact us for detailed information.
