AAF – Standard Ashing Furnaces

The range of AAF ashing furnaces is designed specifically to provide optimum ashing conditions to ensure complete combustion of the sample.

Categories: ,


The AAF 11/3 & AAF 11/7 ashing furnaces provide a continuous flow of preheated air through the chamber, and are designed to comply with ISO 1171:2010, ASTM D3174-04: 2010 and ASTM D4422.

  Standard features
•  1100°C maximum operating temperature
•  4 sided heating (2 sides, roof & hearth)
•  Air inlet & tall chimney give airflow of 4 to 5 changes per minute
•  Carbolite Gero 301 single ramp to setpoint & process timer
•  Designed to comply with ISO 1171:2010, ASTM D3174-04: 2010 and ASTM D4422
•  Ideal for ashing foods, plastics, coal & other hydrocarbon materials
•  Large floor area allows for large number of samples
•  Low chamber height holds airflow close to samples for optimum combustion
•  Powerful elements with graded winding compensate for heat loss due to high airflow
•  Preheating of air before it enters the chamber gives excellent uniformity
•  Wire elements are protected from chemical & mechanical damage by a hard wearing alumina based liner

  Options (specify these at time of order)
•  2 phase electrical supply for AAF 11/7
•  A range of sophisticated digital controllers, multi-segment programmers and data loggers is available. These can be fitted with RS232, RS485 or Ethernet communications
•  Over-temperature protection (recommended to protect valuable contents & for unattended operation)
