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 or 700 cm3 respectively. The speed of the oscillating reactor can be freely selected in a range from 1 to 8 min-1. The sample is constantly mixed and homogenised at a temperature of up to 1100 °C.
For a chemical company a furnace was developed that accommodated 4 HTR 11/75 rotary reactor tube furnaces arranged in a very small space to simultaneously calcinate a large number of zeolithe samples. This process is an important part of quality control and can now be realised quickly and cost-effectively during production so that possible rejects are immediately detected.
