High temperature furance with modified atmosphere is a very important product in laboratories with many uses.
Here are some questions to consider:
1.Fully automatic furance(automated program) or a semi-automatic furance(valves controlled by a person in front of furnace)?
2. Max.working temperature,dwell time and estimated time a max.temperature.
3.What atmosphere is needed and which gases are required?
4.If vacuum is required,what is the vacuum level?
5.Size/Volume of the hot zone / usable space of the Laboratory Furnace?
6.Temperature uniformity-Which temperature is required?
7.Heating process details with max.heat up rate and desired cool down rate?
8.Sample name,material chemical composition,size,volume,weight,better to have pictures of samples.Total load of the furnace
9.Does outgassing of the sample occur? what is the outgassing material? how much is it?
10.Sample loading method-Which is required? sample rack or loading trolley required?
11.Which kind of furnace does the customer use now? What is the current solution of the customer?
12.Is a carbon atmosphere harmful to the sample?
13.Is cooling water,inert gas supply and sufficient power supply available on site?
14.Budget and purchase Date
