Abstract Procedures are presented for the construction of a convenient laboratory furnace for temperatures up to 1700 deg C in air. A hollow tube of silicon carbide insulated with fire brick was used in the construction. After a year of use (and abuse by overheating) there was a 3-in. section in the center over which the temperature was constant to plus or minus 3 deg C at 1480 deg C. Specifications state that the maximum temperature for the Globar is 1550 deg C, but it is capable of producing temperatures of up to 1700 deg C.
