Overview

This instrument leads to high performance and productivity in the laboratory since its two fusion positions can work independently (synchronous or asynchronous mode) and because it guarantees reproducibility as well as optimized fusion conditions. Its molds and crucibles holders are made of superior quality ceramic to ensure the lowest contamination.

The interlocked doors eliminate the contact with hot materials and surfaces for an enhanced security and a total cold-to-cold operation.

The Claisse Eagon 2 instrument has a one-touch operation feature and a wide range of predefined fusion methods that make it really easy to operate in the laboratory.

It has distinguishing features that allow a quick return on investment (ROI) such as casting dish sensors that prevent damage related to pouring without the molds in place.

Features and benefits
