Standard Furnaces

(Room Temperature to 1000°C)

There are a number of furnaces able to operate from room temperature up to the 1000°C limit, some of which are tied to specific instruments and others that can be used on any of the neutron beamlines. Please see further details below.

If you have any questions about this equipment or you think you may want to use one on your experiment contact the Pressure and Furnaces team, or the respective instrument scientist.
Both RAL3 & RAL4 furnaces can be used with an Omega rotation centre stick for single crystal work, or a gas handling centre-stick.The Mari furnace is unique at ISIS in that it has a horizontal geometry.
