Sintering shrinkage

O2 tube furnace

The ThermConcept tube furnace is controlled by a Eurotherm and can be used up to 1500 degrees Celsius. It is possible to create an oxygen atmosphere in the furnace. The furnace is mainly used for sintering niobate materials (materials based on NaNbO3 and AgNbO3). The tube can be replaced or inserted. In order to avoid possible pollution, the use of volatile species is strictly prohibited. Sintering other materials requires a separate tube.

Temperature limit < 1500 °C for long therm use
Atmosphere O2
Remarkable Supporting only AgNbO3, NaNbO3-based materials
and BT-based for now, needs new tubes for new materials
