The incandescent furnace is to be used for fire tests on wood and other lignocellulosic composites. The furnace provides non-contact heating from three sides below, left and right. The heaters are individually freely adjustable up to a temperature of 500 °C. The stove itself can be heated up to 1000 °C. It is also possible to set the ash proportions after combustion, for example for pellets.
