ENGIN-X Furnace

The stress rigs on ENGIN-X are equipped with radiant furnaces for elevated temperature mechanical testing. Two furnaces are available: the radiant air furnace and radiant inert gas furnace. For general heating of samples without applying mechanical loads, for use of non-standard sample designs and for particularly high temperatures, make sure you contact the Instrument Scientists long before your scheduled beamtime in order to make preparations.
