Lucifer Furnaces recently announced it shipped a high-temperature laboratory box furnace to Hammond Lead Products, a producer of products to serve the battery, ceramics and glass industries. Hammond Lead Products will be using the furnace for the development of PZT powders.

The model 3027-K12 furnace can heat to 2500°F with silicon carbide rod-type heating elements mounted above and below the hearth, providing uniform heat in the work chamber.

The 12 x 12 x 12-in. chamber is lined with 7 in. of dry fit insulation consisting of 5-in. insulating brick and 2-in. mineral wool block. The double pivot horizontal swing door with insulating plug meets with the throat section at the front of the furnace chamber, reportedly minimizing heat loss.  

Hammond selected a Honeywell UDC 3500 temperature controller with enhanced set point programming, fast scanning and onboard diagnostics, as well as an over-temperature safety system for automatic furnace shutdown in the event of a high-temperature excursion. Controls are mounted in the furnace base cabinet and include a voltage regulating power transformer with selector switches. A type R platinum thermocouple mounted through the roof reportedly provides a fast, accurate response and excellent lifespan at elevated temperatures.
