ETREMA Products Inc., a leading supplier of magnetostrictive materials recently installed a Lucifer Furnaces high-temperature GT furnace in its Ames, Iowa, facility. 

The model HS3GT is reportedly capable of heating to 2450°F under inert atmosphere, with an SCR power supply for well-regulated voltage and current output. This single-chamber box unit, with a working dimension of 12 x 2 x 24-in., is heated with silicon carbide glowbar elements mounted across the roof and beneath the heavy-duty silicon carbide hearth plate for uniform heating.

Four inches of premium-grade multilayered ceramic fiber insulation (for minimal heat loss and maximum durability in thermal shock conditions) and 2½ in. of mineral wool insulation backup line the work area. The outer shell is fabricated from heavy-gauge sheet steel reinforced and continuously welded for operation with a positive flow of inert atmosphere.
