Do all the above and more in the new Rotavac™ furnace designed for lab scale powder processing. Its rotary drum retort constantly tumbles ceramic or metal powders, promoting uniform treatment, minimizing agglomeration.
Durms up to 8" dia. x 20" lg. (200 x 800 mm) are available in materials rated for temperature up to 2300°C. The drum rotation speed is infinitely variable from 0.1 to 10 rpm. Now, for the first time, powders can be processed in rotary retort at Ultra High temperatures.
Besides powder, preparation, the Rotavac™ furnace doubles as a 2300°C sinter/thermal processing furnace. Simply remove the retort, insert hearth and you're ready to sinter test shapes formed from the superior powders produced in the retort.
Operating from vacuum levels of 7.5 x 10-2 torr (10-1 millibar) to positive pressures up to 14.5 psig (2 bar), a wide range of processing atmospheres can be provided for desired powder properties.
Building on proven, quality components, a custom system is easily specified to meet your present process development needs while providing flexibility for future requirements.
