Introduction of muffle furnace classification and scope of application

muffle furnace is a cyclically operating general heating equipment, which can be used in laboratories, industrial and mining enterprises and scientific research units for elemental analysis and heating of small steel parts in the process of quenching, annealing and tempering. At the same time, the classification of furnaces can be classified according to their heating elements, rated temperatures, and controllers, as follows:

According to the heating elements, there are: electric furnace wire, silicon carbide rod and silicon molybdenum rod;

According to the rated temperature, it is generally divided into: 1000°C or less, 1000°C, 1200°C, 1300°C, 1400°C, 1600°C, 1700°C, 1800°C muffle furnace.

According to the controller, there are the following types: pointer table, ordinary digital display table, PID adjustment control table, program control table; according to the insulation material, there are two types: ordinary refractory brick and ceramic fiber.

After understanding the classification of muffle furnaces, we will understand the scope of application:

(1) Thermal processing of small workpieces, cement and building materials industries.

(2) Pharmaceutical industry: drug inspection, medical sample pretreatment, etc.

(3) Analytical chemistry: sample processing in the field of water quality analysis and environmental analysis. The muffle furnace can also be used for petroleum and its analysis.

(4) Coal quality analysis: used to determine moisture, ash, volatile content, ash melting point analysis, ash composition analysis, element analysis. It can also be used as a general ash furnace.

The above is the scope of use of muffle furnaces popularized by muffle furnace manufacturers.
