The Carbolite Gero TG Gradient split tube furnaces are specifically designed to provide a temperature gradient along the length of the heated zones. They use free radiating wire elements embedded within the insulation of the furnace body. The benefit of this design is its flexibility; with the use of tube adapters the same furnace can be used with a variety of tube diameters.
The furnace body is split into two halves and hinged at the rear; pneumatic dampening struts at either end provide a smooth opening action. The ability to open the furnace makes it easier for operators to exchange work tubes, or insert vessels, such as reactors, with end flanges that would make them difficult to insert into a non-split furnace.
The TG2 furnace has two independent heated zones and TG3 has three independent heated zones. The TG2 includes a 25 mm long unheated zone barrier between the two heated zones and the TG3 has two 75 mm long unheated zone barriers separating the three heated zones. Each heated zone has its own temperature controller and thermocouple.
Carbolite Gero's new tube furnace range is at the pinnacle of furnace design. The culmination of over 80 years of experience in thermal engineering; combining the latest technological developments with solid construction, high-quality components and a sleek, modern aesthetic.
