SIMGAS gas mixing system allows for precise mixtures at moderate flow rates.
Quick disconnect end caps allow for easier configuration changes.
Tube Furnace Models
All MHI tube furnaces feature rugged stainless steel construction, electronic control capabilities, and MHI’s highly acclaimed heating elements. Our tube furnaces feature continuous operating temperatures of up to 1760°C.
Industrial Processes for Syngas, Biomass, Biogas, H2, CO2 for H2 supply, electricity generation, CHP-sawdust, paper waste, and switchgrass.
Gas Processing, Hydrogen Pyrolysis, Cellulosic Biomass to Hydrogen Pyrolysis, Gasifier
Ag-forest residues, Wood chips, Sawdust, Paper Waste, Energy Crops – switchgrass, miscanthus, or biomass crops.
Even with 40-55% moisture, the process gasifies cellulose, hemicellulose, and lignins.
MHI offers three control options with our tube furnaces: Electronic control panels with overtemperature controls, MHI DACS as an electronic controls program, and SIMGAS4 as a gas management system. The combination of these controls makes MHI tube furnaces highly robust and scalable.
Many of MHI’s electronic furnace controllers feature multiple voltage inputs, overtemperature controls, programmable cycles, and several other features. For more information about MHI’s control panels, Contact Us or See More Information.
MHI Tube Furnaces are compatible with MHI DACS for furnace controls, step programming, data logging, and more. DACS also allows for remote furnace control, allowing one central location to control multiple devices.
Gas Management Systems in tube furnaces serve the materials and electronic community when processing has to be carried out in vacuum or gas atmospheres. You can expect excellent temperature uniformity with MHI tube furnaces. We can also provide you with a complete custom gas control panel with gas lines and controls.
Three Zone Tube Furnaces includeHIPAN controllers with a Master/Slave option. Each controller is equipped with independent over-temperature control. Three-zone furnaces feature temperatures up to 1760°C and heated tube lengths of 27″. Multi-zone furnaces feature high uniformity due to their design and the use of multiple BPAN/XPAN controllers.
Multi-Zone furnaces feature excellent uniformity throughout the heated tube and handy controls allowing precise step programming.
MHI high temperature furnaces incorporate industry tested control systems. Tube furnaces find use where an accurate temperature or temperature gradient is required with an atmosphere. Tube furnace applications. Several models are listed below. Typical options that are routinely quoted are the gas management systems (SIMGAS), oxygen and other gas sensors, vacuum and vacuum measurement systems. Use for sintering, brazing, metals, ceramics, optoelectronics, biomaterials, composites and intermetallics.
MHI’s single and multi-zone tube furnaces are available in temperatures up to 1760°C for all applications where process heat is required. Standard dimensions for single phase heated tube zone of 2.5″ x 12″ three zone high uniformity are 27″. Several laboratory and industrial models available with quick disconnects. Long uniform zone. A typical configuration is shown on the right with multiple gas inlets. Available also are customized end-caps or quick-disconnects (snap screw or buckle snap). Everything is listed in the quote for choosing options including a low price data acquisition and process download option. How uniform are the MHI tube furnaces? A testimonial from the Stanford HUTF facilities. See also uniformity page. “The high-uniformity tube furnace facility provides the ideal environment for quantitative measurements of absorption spectra and spectral parameters (line strength, line-broadening coefficients,and more). It is also provides controlled conditions for sensor validations“.
