Tetra Arc Furnace for Crystal Growth



Tetra Arc Crystal Furnace - electrodes in chamber


Tetra Arc Crystal Furnace - Pellet

Manufactured by GES Corporation, this tetra arc crystal furnace uses the Czochralski pulling method and four electric arcs to grow a wide range of metallic-conductive materials such as metallic compounds and high-temperature superconductors. Achieving a 10-6 Torr vacuum within an hour, and using four electric arcs to heat materials up to 3000° C, this furnace provides easy operation and real time monitoring of the crystallization process via CCD camera and four monitoring windows.
