Ashing Furnaces and Ovens
What is an ashing furnace?
Ashing is the process of heating materials to either remove unwanted materials or analyze the ash residue. An ashing furnace is one that is capable of heating these materials safely in a laboratory environment.
In most ashing furnaces, products are placed in an enclosure where they are burned until only ash remains, while also being scientifically weighed through the entire combustion process. Ashing furnaces can be used for cleaning products or collecting the ash for analysis.
What makes an effective ashing furnace?
