An ashing furnace burns products in an enclosure until only ash remains. Ashing furnaces also scientifically weigh the product through the entire combustion process. Scientists use ashing furnaces for cleaning products or to create and collect ash for analysis.
In analytical chemistry, the ashing process heats a substance and leaves noncombustible ash for elemental composition analysis. The ashing process removes unwanted materials, making it easier to analyze the ash residue. In a laboratory environment, scientists use an ashing furnace to apply this process and safely heat materials.
Depending on the application, scientists perform different ashing techniques. Common ashing techniques include:
To heat samples effectively, an ashing furnace must:
Useful for laboratory applications, ashing furnaces handle all types of materials. Sentro Tech ashing furnaces commonly heat materials such as:
