99 Agney Avenue, Terryville, Connecticut, USA 06786

MIM Furnace

Maximum Temperature:

  • 2300o F (1260o C)

Internal Graphite Work Box Dimensions:

  • 12.5” high x 12” wide x 24” deep (32cm x 30cm x 61cm)

Power Requirements:

  • 480 volts, 3 phase, 60 hertz


  • Rough vacuum operation and partial pressure operation.
  • Optional recirculating gas quench cooling.


  • Standard one-year warranty.
  • This is an assembled unit that is shipped as one piece, requiring only the water, gas, and power to be connected to the appropriate locations.
  • The work box will have a gas distribution system to optimize gas flow over the parts during de-binding and will work in conjunction with the mass flow controller and partial pressure control.
  • Yokogawa UP550 digital programmable temperature controller with 30 programs and 300 segments.
  • Fully automatic operation with PLC programmer/controller for operation with alphanumeric display to indicate furnace processing cycles.
  • Graphite hot zone and six-sided graphite heating elements for optimum uniformity.
  • Mechanical vacuum pump with Roots blower.
  • Mass flow controller to control the flow of nitrogen gas.
  • Digital vacuum gauge.
  • Digital high limit controller.
  • Stainless steel binder trap.
  • We provide written operating procedures, complete detailed electrical schematics, and manuals for all instrumentation and controls on the furnace.
  • This unit is leak-tested with a helium mass spectrometer, with no detectable leak in the 10-9
  • Includes one day of test fire and training at our plant in Terryville, Connecticut, USA.


  • Recirculating gas quench cooling. We estimate that this would shorten the cooling time after sintering by 50% or more depending upon when it is initiated.
  • 6-channel Yokogawa paperless datalogging chart recorder with digital communications. Network compatible – can appear as a node on a network, making remote data gathering fast and easy. Includes built-in memory card for storage.
  • Yokogawa Light Loader to facilitate uploading and downloading programs, configuration files, and auto-tuning parameters. This device clips on the face of the Yokogawa UP550 instrument and plugs into a USB port on a PC-based laptop or desktop computer, greatly facilitating and simplifying instrument configuration, program storage, and auto-tuning. Can be used for writing programs and storing detailed configuration data.
  • Remote diagnostics via a modem, enabling us to remotely aid in troubleshooting the furnace and guide your maintenance people directly.
  • 6- or 12-thermocouple uniformity feedthrough port for 1/16” Type “K” thermocouples (not included) to monitor temperature inside the furnace.
