VHT 8/18-GR - VHT 500/18-KE
The compact furnaces of the VHT product line are available as electrically heated chamber furnaces with graphite, molybdenum, tungsten or MoSi₂ heating. A wide variety of heating designs as well as a complete range of accessories provide for optimal furnace configurations even for sophisticated applications.

The vacuum-tight retort allows heat treatment processes either in protective and reaction gas atmospheres or in a vacuum, subject to the individual furnace specs to 10⁻⁵ mbar. The basic furnace is suited for operation with non-flammable protective or reactive gases or under vacuum. The H₂ version provides for operation under hydrogen or other flammable gases. Key of the specification up is a certified safety package providing for a safe operation at all times and triggers an appropriate emergency program in case of failure.
