What Is A Muffle Furnace Used For?

A muffle furnace is a crucial piece of laboratory equipment used for high-temperature heating, recovery and cooling of a material in an insulated cabinet. The critical factor in why muffle furnaces are used is that samples are heated whilst they are kept isolated from the fuel and the byproducts of combustion. This post will provide an overview of the applications that require a muffle furnace and how it benefits them.

What is a Muffle Furnace?

A muffle furnace is a laboratory instrument used to heat materials to extremely high temperatures whilst isolating them from fuel and the byproducts of combustion from the heat source. Muffle furnaces allow for the isolation of a material to reduce the risks of cross-contamination and identify specific properties. This blog post will take a closer look at what a muffle furnace is and provide an overview of its applications and benefits.

Applications of a Muffle Furnace

Muffle furnaces are suitable for a wide variety of high-temperature applications and play a crucial role for scientists who need to determine how much non-combustible and non-volatile content is pr...

5 Different Types of Reference Materials

Reference materials are standards or ‘controls’ that are used to identify the metrological traceability and the quality of products, calibrate instruments and validate analytical methods. These standards are in place to ensure that laboratories have a benchmark to meet when providing accurate test results. Reference materials come in various forms and sizes depending on the applications they are used in, and throughout this blog post, we will look at 5 different reference materials.


Certified Reference Materials

Certified Reference Materials are also known as laboratory standards. These reference materials have been identified as the most accura...
