The system can operate in either a pure hydrogen or high-vacuum environment.

Thermal Technology recently received an order for a large tungsten and molybdenum sintering furnace from a Japanese refractory metals producer. The system hot zone has a spatial capacity of 25 cubic feet, a weight capacity of 1500 kilograms and a maximum temperature of 2200°C. It can operate in either a pure hydrogen or high-vacuum environment.

“Thermal Technology was selected over Japanese and European suppliers due to our ability to meet the customer’s unique, large-scale design requirements,” said Matt Mede, president and CEO. “We have designed and built similar sintering systems for customers in China and elsewhere, and this project fits our expertise.”
