Different Applications of Muffle Furnaces

Muffle Furnace is an extremely heated chamber, walls of which can radiantly heat the content which is kept inside so that material cannot have direct contact with the flame. These furnaces are often utilized in the testing laboratories as a means to create extremely high-temperature inside the chamber. They are employed to measure the characteristics of the materials at high and required temperatures. These instruments are utilized to measure the characteristics of the materials at extremely accurate and high temperatures. These furnaces are also known as retort furnaces.

It is and oven type equipment that can easily attain very high temperatures i.e. up to 900oC or 1200oC. It is capable of creating high-temperature as it is equipped with a high-temperature heating coil in a glass wool insulated material. This material acts as muffle and prevents the heat from escaping.


Application of Muffle Furnace

Muffle furnace is used for numerous applications such as:

  • Fusing glass
  • Creating enamel coatings
  • Ceramics
  • Soldering
  • Brazing
  • Rubbers & Polymers

Apart from these well-known applications for ash content determination, muffle furnace is also used in many research centers, medical laboratories to determine the non-volatile and non-combustible proportion of the sample. The testing device is also used for highly sophisticated metallurgical applications. All types of muffle furnaces work on the basis of conventions, conductions, and with the electrical resistance heating elements.

Presto Stantest offers high-quality of Muffle Furnaces to create high temperatures inside the laboratories to determine the actual percentage of ash content in a material.
