HTVP1600 furnace measures the elastic properties and damping of samples continuously at high temperatures up to 1600 °C. The HTVP1600 furnace is equipped with a vacuum pump to create a clean atmosphere. Measurements can be done in controlled atmosphere (air, inert, reducing,), but not under vacuum atmosphere.

Measures Resonant frequency
Damping or Internal Friction
