Thumbnail Standard Furnaces

There are a number of furnaces able to opperate from room temperature up to the 1000°C limit, some of which are tied to a specific instrument but most of which are in the pool. Please see futher details below.

If you have any questions about this equipment or you think you may want to use one on your experiment contact the sample environment 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.
