The RIKO Infrared Gold Image furnace for ultrahigh temperature materials testing and analysis heats the sample by focusing reflected infrared rays with high energy density. The infrared lamp, consisting of quartz glass tube encompassing a tungsten filament, provides an energy density and luminous temperature 10 to 15 times as high as conventional heating elements. Temperatures normally reach 900C to 1500C, and can reach as high as 1800C, depending on the model. The gold reflection plane permits high-speed heating, and the furnace body cools rapidly from water and gas cooling. Using no heat insulation, the furnace is free from dust and gas contamination. The furnace body is available in 32 types, including line, tubular and planar, with two types of reflection planes, elliptical and parabolic.
