In rubber industries, determining the ash content in a sample of materials is a very important thing for quality assurance. With the determination of ash content present in the rubber, it becomes easier for the manufacturers of rubber products to determine the applicability of a particular material in a product. The ash content is determined by burning a sample of the material completely to ashes under high temperatures. A muffle furnace is an instrument that is used for efficient combustion of the specimen under controlled testing conditions so that accurate analysis of the ash content is done.
In the muffle furnace, the sample is placed in a crucible in the chamber, and the desired temperature is set. The sample is kept inside the chamber for a specific amount of time. After the sample completely turns in to ashes, it is taken out, and the ashes of the sample are analyzed for its different chemical and physical properties.
