The TMS UTFC range of universal tube furnaces can be used in a vertical or horizontal position and have three separate heating zones to ensure good uniformity across the work piece.
They are often used by laboratories for tensile testing of materials, as creep-test furnaces or stress rupture test furnaces.
In most cases they are suitable for replacing units of other makes, such as Mayes, Dennison, etc.
On the side of the casing is a terminal box for connecting to the elements and earthing the unit. Most models have a small tube for a thermocouple embedded in the heating elements for over-temperature protection (which when used with the proper equipment ensures the elements don’t over-heat). Therefore the units can last much longer and are less likely to fail during a test. The units have either three or four M10 threaded mounted rods on a PCD of 203mm ±3mm.
There is a choice of 4 standard models, these include 3 tube diameters and 3 lengths. Control systems are sold separately, please contact us for more details.
