High Temperature Furnace for Materials Testing. Contractor’s submitting a quote shall be a authorized reseller of Amteco, Inc
Statement of Work for High Temperature Furnace
This work is to purchase Amteco 2700F furnace and controller. This investment supports the Aeronautics Missions at GRC by providing test equipment to support research and development of ceramic and metallic materials. This furnace system is for testing materials for evaluation for various aerospace applications for the materials division. It will provide capability for higher operating temperatures This furnace meets the ASTM standard requirements for thermal profile at test temperatures up to 2700F. The alternate brands of furnaces that have been used by our branch in the past do not meet the requirements. NASA recently performed fatigue testing for an industry partner but only our Amteco furnace could meet the temperature requirements. NASA request all of our furnaces the same so they can compare data. Therefore, NASA seek to buy one furnace from Amteco to match. The furnace also offer ease of use compared to other brands and they have optional windows that can be added later for imaging samples at high temperature. .
