The silicon carbide heating elements have a maximum power output of 3 kW on each of the 3 heating groups for the FCOPP/A and 4 kW for the FCOPP/B. The power on each phase is electronically controlled which avoids manual regulation and increases the life of the heating elements.
The new FCOPP furnace has a stainless steel structure with insulated walls and a cooling system consisting of 3 fans that allow the flow of hot air towards the upper part of the furnace, thus facilitating suction. With this new thermal insulation, the external surface temperature of the furnaces does not exceed 70-80 °C.
This new model also has a slightly larger muffle compared to the previous version and can now accept up to 6 cupels per row; the FCOPP/B version can hold up to 10 cupels per row.
The loading door has been designed and equipped with an articulated quadrilateral device which means that an electric motor can now be installed to automatically open/close it.
