0.0/5 rating (0 votes)


VBF-1200X-H8 is a compact vacuum furnace. It equips a 7.5" ID x 13.4"L Quartz tube chamber sitting horizontally. Water-cooled stainless steel vacuum flanges with valves are installed to achieve a vacuum of up to10-5 Torr via turbopump. It is designed for calcining or annealing semiconductor wafers (up to 6") under vacuum or various other gas atmospheres with a temperature of up to 1100°C. It also can also be used as a vacuum brazing furnace.

Gas Inlet and Outlet & Water cooling
  • One gas purging inlet (1/4" hose adapter ) with a valve is on the left side of the furnace 
  • The inert gas can be introduced into the chamber via the inlet for purging purposes. 
  • If a continuous gas flow is needed, refer to the additional gas inlet and thermocouple probe below.
  • A water cooling jacket has been built inside the flange to protect the vacuum sealing O-tings. The inlet and outlet ports located on the left side of the furnace are used for connecting to a water chiller through two 12 mm Dia. polyurethane tubes (16L/minute water flow is required). Please click the picture left to order the water chiller.
  • A water chiller is required for heating temperature above 500°C (thermal block is placed)
Temperature Controller      
  • NRTL certified digital temperature controller is included.
  • Proportional–integral–derivative control (PID control) and auto-tune function
  • 30 segments programmed with ramping, cooling, and dwelling steps
  • Built-in over-temperature alarm and thermocouple failure alarm
  • +/- 1 ºC temperature control accuracy
  • THE Default DB9 PC communication port included for connecting to a PC
  • Eurotherm Temperature Controller is available at an extra cost with +/-0.1°C accuracy. 
  • Digital Pressure Gauge (optional) A gas-type independent(above 10 mbar) digital vacuum gauge with a wide range between 3.8x10-5 to 1125 Torr. ( Click Pic. 1 to order )
  • You may choose a gas mixer to deliver multiple gasses with control over gas composition and flow rate (click pictures below to order separately).

  • The sample holder is not included with the furnace. You may check Pic. 1 below to order 
  • You may order quartz wafer boat to anneal wafer up to 6" ( Pic.2)
  • Optional Quartz Thermal Block is available upon request as the refractory block, which can help achieve a higher vacuum level and avoid potential contamination problems, please order Quartz Thermal Block.
  • 4-holes 1/4" Alumina Tube can be used for inserting 4 wires (e.g. Pt wires) through the holes for measuring the electrical properties at the high temperature at extra cost.

Vacuum Pressure

  • Vacuum Level is dependent on the vacuum pump used, connected pipe, interior refractory block's materials, etc. By using KFD25, stainless steel pipe, MTI's two-stage mechanical pump, and KF25 Ball valve, the furnace can achieve vacuum levels below:
    • 10-2 torr via mechanical pump within 30 minutes without thermal Block
    • 10-4  torr via turbo-pump within 30 minutes with the Quartz Thermal Block at 900C
  • Optional: 
    • The vacuum pump and pipe are not included, please click on the picture below to order.
    • For achieving a higher vacuum level, a Turbopump is necessary. 
    • Spare sealing O-ring is available at extra cost ( click 2nd picture to left below )
    •  KF25 Right-Angle Valve for quick connection to KF25 Bellows (click the picture 3 below ).

Click here to learn the installation of a gas regulator

  • Tube furnaces with quartz tubes are designed for use under vacuum and at low-pressure <  0.2 bars 
  • Attention: A two-stage pressure regulator must be installed on the gas cylinder to limit the pressure to below 3 PSI for safe operation. Click here to learn the installation of a gas regulator. 
  • Never heat the furnace while the gas release valve is closed when a positive pressure condition exists within the furnace chamber. 
  • Max. 1000°C is limited on all quartz tube furnaces to avoid the quartz tubes' deformation.
  • The flow rate for gasses should be limited to < 200 SCCM for reducing thermal shocks
