PHOENIX™ MICROWAVE MUFFLE FURNACE
The Phoenix Microwave Muffle Furnaces enable companies in diverse industries to improve process control and make rapid adjustments to significantly reduce “out-of-specification” product. These systems can perform high temperature applications up to 97% faster than traditional muffle furnaces. The standard Phoenix Microwave Muffle Furnace configuration features:
- Programmable temperature control
- Auto-Start/Auto-Shutdown software
- Built-in exhaust system
- Entry and storage of up to 20 methods
- Built-in calibration software
- Over-temperature and thermocouple failure safeguards
- Built-in system diagnostics
- Use any type of crucible normally used in a conventional muffle furnace, including platinum!
The Phoenix Microwave Muffle Furnace Systems are rugged, user-friendly and engineered to be highly dependable. Temperature verification and temperature calibration for ISO and GLP practices are quickly and easily performed. Optional accessories include NIST traceable dual thermocouples and calibration source instruments.
Phoenix satisfies the equipment requirements for “electrically heated” furnaces in the following methods:
* ASTM, USP (281 – ROI & 733-LOI), AOAC, FDA, ISO & DIN
Phoenix also meets the requirements for applications listing a “microwave-heated” furnace
* ASTM D5630-94, ASTM D1506-94b
All Phoenix Microwave Muffle Furnace Systems are available with workstation options including a balance and printer.
The Phoenix Workstation option transforms your microwave muffle furnace into a complete center for ashing and data compilation that is both fast and accurate. The system uses the furnace’s built-in serial and parallel ports to connect to a balance for weighing and a printer for complete documentation of the ashing process to assist in compliance with ISO and other QC requirements.
The Phoenix Workstation utilizes a 100 g balance with 0.0001 g sensitivity for sample weighing. The balance communicates directly with the Phoenix furnace by a RS-232 port, which is a standard feature in every CEM muffle furnace. Once the sample has completed the ashing process and has been reweighed, the user can print the sample results and information with the Workstation’s printer.
