Three Zone Alumina Tube Furnace with Vacuum* Flanges (60, 80 or 100mm OD. 1700C Max.) - GSL-1700X-60-III

Three Zone Alumina Tube Furnace with Vacuum* Flanges (60, 80 or 100mm OD. 1700C Max.) - GSL-1700X-60-III

0.0/5 rating (0 votes)


GSL-1700X-60-III is a CE certified 60mm or 80mm OD three zones tube furnace with complete vacuum sealing flange. Each heating zone is 12" in length and controlled by three precision 30 segments of digital temperature controllers independently. One zone (center zone) is heated bySuper-1800 MoSi2 elements up to 1700°C, and another two zones are heated by SiC elements up to 1400°C. The tube furnace can create the various thermal gradient by adjusting three zones temperature. It is an excellent furnace to prepare functional materials under thermal gradient, and also can be used for epitaxial film growth by CVD.

  • Vacuum pressure  can reach to 10-4 torr with the turbo vacuum pump
Fitting Ports
  • In order to increase the throughput and achieve high vacuum, you may replace the standard barbed hose fitting with the KF25 adapter, please click underline to order.
  • For supplying high-pressure gas, you may replace the standard barbed hose fitting with the Swagelok Tube Fitting, please click underline to order

Temperature Controllers

  • Three digital controllers with microprocessor-based PID control and self-tuning
  • Each has 30-segments programmable with protection for overheated and broken thermocouple
  • Temperature Accuracy: +/- 1ºC
  • Thermal Couple: One B type(210mm long TC for the central zone), two S type (210mm long TC for side zones)

European Temperature Controllers (optional upgrade)

  • 1 heating channel
  • 1 program of 8 or 24 segment
  • Alarm Relay: Form 'A' and Form ‘C’ built-in 
  • Digital Communications: RS485
  • Temperature Accuracy:  ±  0.1ºC
  • Recipes: Using a PC tool recipes can be created that can be used to change the operating parameters of the 3000 simply by selecting a new recipe via the HMI. This is very useful where multiple products are processed using the same controller but require different parameters to be set.
Power Cable & Plug
  • 10 feet length 8-3 AWG heavy duty UL approved power cable is included
  • Extra length cable can be ordered by click picture left
  • The plug is not included. You can order from the local hardware store according to female plug in your lab

Application Notes

Optional Parts

                       Please click here to learn the installation of a gas regulator
  • The tube furnaces with alumina tube are designed for use under vacuum and low pressure < 0.02 Mpa / 0.2 Bar/ 3 PSI 
  • Never use graphite crucible in the alumina tube.
  • 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.
  • The gas flow rate should be limited to < 200 SCCM ( or 200ml/min )
  • Vacuum limit definition for all alumina tube furnaces: * Vacuum pressures may only be safely used up to 1500°C
