Heat Treatment Lab


Location: 3362 Hoover Hall

The Heat Treatment Lab houses many furnaces that are necessary for synthesis or thermal processing of ceramic and metallic samples used in both teaching and research. The lab ovens are routinely used for drying samples and glassware. One oven has the capability to be used with a vacuum pump to create a vacuum atmosphere.
