Rotary tube furnaces are used for quick and easy production of laboratory-scale samples with excellent homogeneity for R&D and quality control. Carbolite Gero’s HTR 11/75 and HTR 11/150 furnaces allow for calcinations, pyrolysis or reactive gas treatment of a great variety of powders and granulates with volumes up to 50 cm3 or 700 cm3 respectively. The speed of the oscillating reactor can be freely selected in a range from 1 to 8 rpm. The sample is constantly mixed and homogenized at a temperature of up to 1100 °C.
The HTR series is suited as a cost-effective intermediate step in an upscaling process from laboratory to production scale. In batch operation the furnaces are used to optimize the duration of the heat treatment process under controlled atmosphere (air, inert or reactive gas); thus it is possible to ascertain the variables for a continuous process as it takes place, for example, in a rotating tube furnace.
Carbolite Gero is specialized in customized solutions which are realized in close cooperation with the customer.
