Product Details



The HTVP1700C furnace is designed to perform impulse excitation measurements at elevated temperatures up to 1700 °C in an inert atmosphere or up to 1500 °C in vacuum (10-2 mbar). Measurements can be performed in predefined intervals during heating and cooling (1-5 °C/min) in order to determine the elastic properties and damping as function of the temperature. The adjustable positioning of the excitation system and the top hat system guarantee an optimal sample configuration and manipulation.The HTVP1700C furnace is equipped with a turbomolecular vacuum pump to perform measurements in a controlled atmosphere (inert or vacuum). During vacuum measurements, a laser vibrometer is used to detect the vibration signal.
