ELEMENTS: The furnace utilizes molydiscilcide elements capable of 1800°C element temperature.

INSULATION: The insulation for the furnace consists of an insulation package with 4" wall thickness. The furnace roof (3"thick) is comprised of multi-layered high temperature insulation.

FURNACE SHELL: The furnace has a double wall shell separated by a fan cooled air space to facilitate lead cooling and provide a cooler exterior. The shell is comprised of 1/16" thick sheet metal. The furnace is a welded construction with all of the holes and cut-outs manufactured on computer controlled machinery. The entire furnace assembly, including the insulation construction, is machined using CNC devices to insure repeatability and accuracy as relates to the design.
