Energy efficient, cost effective Graphitic Hot Zones

VFE supplies a wide range of graphitic hot zones covering all makes and models of vacuum furnaces, offering outstanding reliability and energy efficiency operation at temperatures of up to 2400ºC

VFE’s detailed design philosophy utilises only the highest quality enhanced graphite materials and Carbon Fibre Composites (CFC) which are pre-fired at high temperature to ensure total compatibility to a wide range of metallurgical processes including:

  • Vacuum heat treatment
  • Vacuum brazing
  • Solution heat treatment of single crystal
  • Vacuum sintering
  • High temperature ceramic sintering
  • MIM
