1200°C Max Sliding Tube Furnace With Flanges For Fast Heating / Cooling

TMAX-1200X-50-SL is a compact automatic sliding tube furnace with 2" OD x 36" L Quartz tube and flanges with 1200°C max. working temperature. The automatic sliding mechanism allows the furnace to slide from one side to the other for achieving the max. heating and cooling rates of > 100°C/min.

For achieving the fastest heating, the furnace may be pre-heated to a desired temperature and then get slid to the sample's position. As for the fastest cooling, the furnace can be slid to another side after sample heating is completed. Moreover, the heating and cooling rates may reach 15°C/s under vacuum or inert gas conditions. This furnace provides an alternative for rapid thermal processing at the lowest cost. 


Furnace Structure

  • Double layer steel structure with dual air cooling fans 
  • One pair of sliding rails is installed on bottom of furnace, which allows furnace to be manually moved from side to side
  • Vacuum flanges and a vacuum gauge are installed  for immediate use.

Heating& Cooling Rates 

  Heating Rate:

 15°C/sec (RT - 150°C);

 10°C/sec (150°C - 250°C);

  7°C/sec (250°C - 350°C);

  4°C/sec (350°C - 500°C);

  3°C/sec (500°C - 550°C);

  2°C/sec (550°C - 650°C);
  1°C/sec (650°C - 800°C);
 0.5°C/sec (800°C - 1000°C);

Cooling Rate:

15°C/sec (1000 - 950°C);

10°C/sec (950°C - 900°C);

7°C/sec (900°C - 850°C);

Application Notes

  • Tube furnaces with quartz tubes are designed for using under vacuum and low pressure < 0.2 bars / 3 psi / 0.02 MPa
  • Attention: A two-stage pressure regulator must be installed on the gas cylinder to limit the pressure to below 3 PSI for safe operation. 
  • The flow rate for gasses should be limited to < 200 SCCM (or 200 ml/min) for reducing thermal shocks to the tube
  • Vacuum limit definition for all quartz tube furnaces: * Vacuum pressures may only be safely used up to 1000°C
  • Click here to learn How to set up quartz/ ceramic tube and vacuum flange for MTI Tube furnace.
  • If you need faster cooling please click the picture below to order a  Portable Spot Air Cooling Conditioner .
  • After CVD, the graphene must be transferred from the metal catalyst to another substrate for most applications. By using the graphene transfer tape, the residue can be low.
  • For Horizontal directional crystalization  (HDC), you may use a gas feedtrough as pic below right.


  • Fast sample cooling can be achieved by sliding the heating chamber away. Please wear protective gears such as heat resistant suit & gloves if you intend to do so.
