Time:2024-04-08 14:28

Box furnace, also known as muffle furnace, is a heating furnace with a box shaped furnace. Its design ensures that during heating, insulation, and cooling processes, the product remains stationary, and the feed and discharge are carried out through a single door or groove, hence it is also known as an intermittent production furnace. So what are some things to pay attention to when operating a box furnace?

The usage method of a box furnace mainly includes the following steps:
1. Before starting use, the furnace should be thoroughly cleaned to ensure that there are no impurities, in order to avoid affecting the sample and reagent.
2. Understand the model, specifications, performance, and temperature control system of the furnace, and set operating parameters as needed. This includes adjusting parameters such as temperature and time.
3. Open the furnace door, place the items to be baked into the furnace, and ensure that the items are in the middle position of the furnace. Then, close the furnace door and ensure that the furnace door screws are tightened.
4. Start the heating power supply of the box furnace, control the heating power, and start heating the box furnace. If necessary, temperature adjustments can be made according to the actual situation to ensure the stability and accuracy of heating.
5.During the heating process, it is necessary to constantly observe temperature changes and adjust temperature, ventilation and other parameters in a timely manner to achieve the best baking effect.
6.When the heating time reaches the predetermined time or the heating task is completed, turn off the heating power switch of the box furnace. Wait for the box furnace to cool to a safe temperature before opening the box door. Note that when opening and closing the box door, ensure the cleanliness of the surrounding environment to prevent dust or other impurities from entering the box furnace.
7. After the operation is completed, turn off the power switch of the box furnace and clean the outer shell of the box furnace to prevent dust accumulation from affecting the normal use of the equipment. At the same time, regularly inspect and clean the heating elements to ensure their surface is clean and not affected by any dirt.
