Buy Now

The chamber ovens NRA 40/02 CDB and NRA 150/02 CDB are specially developed for debinding of ceramics and metallic powder injection molded parts according to the BASF CATAMOLD®-method. They are equipped with a gastight retort with inside heating and air circulation. During catalytic debinding, the polyacetal-containing (POM) binder chemically decomposes in the oven under nitric acid and is carried out of the oven by a nitrogen carrier gas and burned in an exhaust gas torch. Both furnaces have a comprehensive safety package to protect the operator and the surrounding.

Model NRA 40/02 CDB is very compact and excels with its excellent cost-performance ratio. This model is pefectly suited for repeating lab processes and in production. As a professional production furnace, model NRA 150/02 CDB is also designed for frequent charge changes. The furnace has an automatic torch control that detects the end of the process measuring the torch temperature. 

  • Tmax 200 °C
  • Process retort made of acid-resistant stainless steel 1.4571 with large swiveling door
  • Four-side heating inside the retort through chromium steel tube heating elements for good temperature uniformity
  • Horizontal air circulation for uniform distribution of the process gas
  • Acid pump and acid vessel (to be provided by the customer) accommodated in the furnace frame
  • Gas-heated exhaust gas torch with flame monitoring
  • Non-wearing ceramic cup for uniform evaporation of the nitric acid
