The lab at Engineering Materials has several furnaces, including e.g.:
Nabertherm RHTC 230/15 (tube furnace), max. 1500°C, heating/cooling rate 300°C/h
Nabertherm N11/HR, max. 1280°C
Sinter furnace, high vacuum
Hot Isostatic Press (HIP)
ABB, Autoclave, RT-2000C: Ar, graphite furnace, max. 2070 bar
Cold Isostatic Press (CIP)
Max. 4500 bar.
PSA-300LC: “low capacity” testing instrument for gas separation studies to evaluate small sample volumes of adsorbate material…with testing protocols for both dual-bed and single-bed R&D applications.
ScanVac Freeze dryer: Low temperature <-110°C gives rapid freeze drying.
Potentiostat GAMRY Reference 3000 : Capable of most electrochemical investigations for corrosion and energy applications. Methods such as electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS), potentiodynamic / potentiostatic investigations and zero resistance ammeter (ZRA) are some of the examples of techniques that can be used to investigate the materials.
