HTR – Rotary Reactor Tube Furnaces

The HTR furnaces combine in a laboratory scale unit many of the advantages of a fluidised bed reactor with those of a rotary kiln.

Categories: ,


The sample is simultaneously heated and mixed under a controlled atmosphere. This overcomes the longer reaction times required in standard chamber or tube furnaces.

  Standard features
•  1100°C maximum operating temperature
•  A 30 mm flow meter for nitrogen is provided
•  A positive break safety interlock switch cuts power to the elements when the heating chamber is open
•  A single seal gasket directs the reactor exhaust into a removable stainless steel exhaust box from where a gas outlet allows piping to an extraction system
•  Carbolite Gero 301 PID controller with single ramp to setpoint and process timer
•  Developed in partnership with the Imperial College of Science & Technology, London
•  Gas enters the reactor through a flexible silicon rubber tube
•  Heating is provided by long life, rapid heating, resistance wire elements mounted in rigid, half cylindrical vacuum formed insulation modules
•  Quartz reaction vessel included as standard
•  The fluted internal surface of the quartz reactor ensures thorough mixing as the variable speed electric drive system oscillates the reactor tube through 315°

  Options (specify these at time of order)
•  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)
•  Optional inconel reactor
•  Single or multiple flow meters for different gases
