Abstract: A batch-type controlled-atmosphere furnace (BCAF) was designed, assembled and tested. The furnace consisted of important components namely, sintering chamber, controller and residual gas burnout igniter. The sintering chamber was made of stainless steel shell lined with refractory insulators. Heating element coils were put next to the liner inside the chamber. The controller was installed so it could make a heating profile and control inlet gases. The gas burnout igniter was installed for burning of some organic residuals resulting from delubricating and residual sintering gases. The experimental furnace was capable to sinter stainless steels. This was confirmed by physical and mechanical properties of sintered stainless steels.
Description: The Chiang Mai Journal of Science is an international English language peer-reviewed journal which is published in open access electronic format 6 times a year in January, March, May, July, September and November by the Faculty of Science, Chiang Mai University. Manuscripts in most areas of science are welcomed except in areas such as agriculture, engineering and medical science which are outside the scope of the Journal. Currently, we focus on manuscripts in biology, chemistry, physics, materials science and environmental science. Papers in mathematics statistics and computer science are also included but should be of an applied nature rather than purely theoretical. Manuscripts describing experiments on humans or animals are required to provide proof that all experiments have been carried out according to the ethical regulations of the respective institutional and/or governmental authorities and this should be clearly stated in the manuscript itself. The Editor reserves the right to reject manuscripts that fail to do so.
