The Centorr Model 5TA Tri-Arc Furnace is a natural evolution of the Centorr Model 5SA Single Arc Furnace. The furnace system consists of the Tri-Arc Furnace, a Resistor box, a D.C. power supply and a set of water cooled power cables to bring power and water to the furnace. Because of its simplicity, ease of access, and small volume, the furnace is easily purged. Work specimens are, therefore, quickly prepared, with a very high degree of purity maintained from sample to sample.
Our Model 5TA Tri-Arc Furnace was developed for the scientist engaged in high temperature work requiring more elaborate apparatus than that normally used for arc melting applications. (For the everyday arc melting applications, see our data sheet on the Centorr Model 5SA Single Arc Furnace)
