A high vacuum high-temperature furnace is widely used in heat treatment processes. In this type of furnace, the product inside the furnace is surrounded by a vacuum during the process. The absence of air or other gases prevents oxidation, heat loss from the product through convection, and removes a source of contamination. This enables the furnace to heat materials (typically metals and ceramics) to high temperatures. High vacuum high-temperature furnaces are often used to produce advanced ceramics such as B4C, SiC, AlON, and AlN, which are used in the automotive, aerospace, construction, and electronic devices industries.
