High Temperature Gas Environment
The ambient testing cell can be replaced with a furnace for high temperature gas environment testing. The operation temperature depends on the furnace type, but 800°C temperature is the most typical temperature.
The furnace is not gas tight, but a continuous gas or gas mixture will be led in the furnace to prevent the exposure of the high temperature to specimen to air. The furnace setup is regularly equipped with adjustable flow meters for nitrogen and an operation gas such as CO2. There is also an adjustable flow meter for the cooling water that controls the pull rod temperature
