Thermo Scientific Lindberg/Blue M 17L B2 1700C Box Furnace
Part Number: BF51634C
Thermo Scientific Lindberg/Blue M 1700°C furnaces are designed for efficient, high temperature use with minimal maintenance. These furnaces feature fast heatup to high temperatures, unique door design and control sophistication ranging from solid-state, single setpoint to more versatile microprocessor-based systems with programming options.
Features of the BF51634C Industrial Lab Furnace
Includes the B2 Controller
Single setpoint with one ramp to setpoint.
The ramp is used to vary the heat-up rate to your specified setpoint. The furnace will then hold the temperature at a set level.
An LED display simultaneously shows both setpoint and actual furnace temperatures.
See bottom of page for more details on controllers.
Selectable self-tuning PID control (proportional, integral, derivative) provides optimum thermal process and prevents overshoot
Control panel designed for easy access and maintenance
Main power ON/OFF switch on control panel
Adjustable high-limit overtemperature protection
Can be configured to display temperature in either °C or °F
Features and Construction
Designed for efficient high-temperature use with minimal maintenance
Side swing door provides full and easy access to chamber, protects user from heat surge
Atmosphere port, 0.375in. diameter, for fresh air or inert gas inlet (located at back wall, bottom)
Solid-state power module with ammeter, circuit breaker, transformer and front panel indicator lights for "Ready Element" and "Main Power Applied"
Safety power disconnect switch cuts power to heating elements when door is opened
Moldatherm high-temperature ceramic fiber insulation with advanced graded design for fast heat-up and resistance to thermal shock
Moldatherm hearthplate supports load and protects chamber from spills or mishandling
High-volume cooling fans move air between inner and outer chamber to reduce exterior shell temperatures and improve energy efficiency and operator safety
Long-life type "B" thermocouples with 10ft. compensated lead wire and polarized plug for accurate high-temperature measurement
Removable panels for easy access to replaceable heating elements and thermocouples
NOTE: Requires customer-supplied power cord or hardwiring
Smart Heating Elements
Molybdenum disilicide elements with unique right-angle bend and sidewall mounting reduce maintenance usually associated with element termination and mounting
Designed for easy replacement without matching resistance values
Fast heat-up and recovery with excellent uniformity and energy efficiency
Increased resistance to thermal shock, ideal for rapid cycling over extended periods
About the Controllers B2 and D2
This furnace is available with two different controllers allowing various levels of control and programs. All of the controllers are digital. The BF51634C has the B2 controller.
