Exhaust Systems/Accessories

* Note: If other controller types are used an adapter cable for connection to mains supply has to be ordered separately. The device will be activated by plugging in the socket.

   
Chimney for connection to an exhaust pipe. Chimney with fan, to remove exhaust gas from the furnace better. The B400 - P480 controllers can be used to activate the fan automatically (not for models L(T) 15.., L 1/12, LE 1/11, LE 2/11).* Catalytic converter with fan for removal of organic components from the exhaust air. Organic components are catalytically oxidized at about 600 °C, broken into carbon dioxide and water vapour. Irritating odors are thus largely eliminated. The B400 - P480 controllers can be used to switch the catalytic converter automatically (not for models L(T) 15.., L 1/12, LE 1/11, LE 2/11).*
Exhaust torch to burn exhaust gases which are generated during the process. The torch is gas-fired and will be operated with propane gas. If a catalytic post combustion cannot be used for the process this torch is recommended. Square saggar for furnaces HTC and LHT, Tmax 1600 °C The load is placed in ceramic saggars for optimal utilization of the furnace space. Up to three saggars can be stacked on top of each other in the furnace. Each saggar has cut-outs for better ventilation. The top saggar should be closed with a lid made of ceramics also. Round saggar (Ø 115 mm) for furnaces LHT/LB, Tmax 1650 °C These saggars are perfectly suited for furnaces LHT/LB. The load is placed in the saggars. Up to three saggars can be stacked on top of each other in order to use the overall furnace chamber.
