The Experimental Geochemistry Lab's one-atmosphere gas mixing furnace has arrived! The furnace, in the large crate on the right, is made by Deltech Furnaces and can reach 1800 C with precise control on redox conditions inside the tube. These furnaces are widely used in experimental petrology and geochemistry for an equally wide range of experiments and sample synthesis. The Laboratory is still under renovation, so the furnace will be in its box for another few months, but I'm very excited its here and can't wait to get it setup.
