Thermal treatment.

The Fraunhofer Institute for Ceramic Technologies and Systems IKTS in Dresden is using a CARBOLITE furnace to research debinding and sintering of ceramics as part of in-depth investigations into the application benefits of foamed ceramics. The research at Fraunhofer IKTS called for a custom-built 35 litre capacity 1400 [degrees] C furnace with silicon carbide heating. Additionally, Fraunhofer IKTS required the furnace to provide improved management of the toxic cyanide, isocyanate and nitrogen dioxide fumes that were produced from their previous, conventional furnace, as the polyurethane foam matrix and organic binders were burned-off. Carbolite achieved this goal by mounting a secondary catalytic after-burner on top of the primary chamber furnace.
