High frequency remelting furnace (HFR)

The High-frequency remelting (HFR) and spin-casting machine allows the rapid production of laboratory alloys by induction melting under argon protective atmosphere. The turbulent flow from the induction provides an excellent mixing of the melt and the closed melting chamber prevents oxidation. The subsequent (optional) centrifugal spin-casting into a copper mould supports also the homogenization [...]

Tammann furnace

The tammann furnace is an electric resistance tube furnace from the manufacturer Ruhrstrat GmbH (Ruhrstrat HRTK 32 Sond.) with a maximum operating temperature of 1700°C.  With the experimental set-up of the tammann-type furnace it’s possible to investigate a huge variety of steel systems. Since change in atmosphere and alloying in any order is feasible, [...]

Plasmette – a Laboratory reactor for Hydrogen Plasma Smelting Reduction

The production of iron using hydrogen as a reducing agent is an alternative to conventional iron- and steel-making processes, with an associated decrease in CO2emissions. Hydrogen plasma smelting reduction (HPSR) of iron ore is the process of using hydrogen thermal plasma to reduce iron oxides. A laboratory-scale hydrogen plasma facility, which is called ‘Plasmette’, [...]

Vacuum-Induction-Furnace

The Vacuum-Induction-Furnace is used for when high gas purity is requested. The chamber is vacuumed and further flooded with inert gas e.g. Argon 5.0. The raw materials consist of pure iron or remelted steels. Analytical measurements of the current composition allow the adjustment of the alloying element contents very accurate. Thus it is able [...]

Induction-Furnace 160 kg

The Induction-Furnace 160 kg is used for the castings of ingots up to 100 kg and steel/slag experiments. The raw materials consist of pure iron or remelted steels. Analytical measurements of the current composition allow the adjustment of the alloying element contents very accurate. Thus it is able to produce numerous steel grades or [...]

Induction-Furnace 20 kg

The Induction-Furnace 20 kg is used for the castings of small ingots, specific experiments related to continuous casting (IMC-B and SSCT Test) and steel/slag experiments. The raw materials consist of pure iron or remelted steels. Analytical measurements of the current composition allow the adjustment of the alloying element contents very accurate. Thus it is [...]

High Temperature Vertical Tube Furnace

The GERO® High temperature vertical tube furnace HTR-V100-250/17 is used to observe the dissolution properties of slag formers and steel scrap in liquid slag and metallic liquids, respectively. Further, the refining of liquid slag is possible. The maximum temperatures are 1650 °C. The heating is carried out through molybdenum disilicide (MoSi2) heating elements with [...]

High Temperature Vertical Tube Furnace with adjustable gas atmosphere

The Gero Carbolite HTRV 100-250/18 is used to observe the dissolution properties of slag formers and steel scrap in liquid slag and metallic liquids, respectively. Further, the determination of liquid slag properties e.g. diffusion coefficients is possible. The maximum temperatures are 1720 °C. The heating is carried out through molybdenum disilicide (MoSi2) heating elements [...]
