Set Vacuum Level
The factory setting for vacuum is 71 cm of mercury. The
acceptable level is from 22 cm to 74–75 cm of mercury or
9.0 inches to 28.0 inches of mercury.
The furnace uses an absolute vacuum sensor.
With an absolute sensor, adjustments are
not necessary at high altitudes.
If the furnace does not pull a minimum vacuum of 10
inches within 20 seconds of calling for it, the program will
be aborted and the furnace will display "Vacuum Error."
Additionally, if the target vacuum level has not
been reached within 1.5 inches of the target by 100
seconds, the program will be aborted and a warning
screen will be displayed, indicating a vacuum error.
To set the vacuum level for all programs do the following:
If Continuous VC Pump has been selected by using
the Special Functions menu, the vacuum pump will
run throughout the vacuum cycle. If Continuous VC
Pump has not been selected, the vacuum pump will
shut off after the target level has been reached and at
least 5 seconds have elapsed. The vacuum pump will be
restarted when the vacuum level has dropped to 1 inch
below the target value.
4. The current setting will be displayed.
Turn the Select Knob to change this value.
1. Press the Special Functions button.
2. Turn the Select Knob until SET VACUUM LEVEL
is displayed.
3. Press the Next button to look at or change
the vacuum level.
5. Press the Next button to accept the new value.
Degrees F or Degrees C
The furnace may be set to display all values using the
metric system with degrees in Centigrade and vacuum
in centimeters of mercury or to display all values using
the American/English (standard) system of degrees
Fahrenheit and vacuum in inches of mercury.
3. Press the Next button to look at or change the
measurement system in use.
1. Press the Special Functions button.
5. Press the Next button.
4. TEMP CENTIGRADE? Will be displayed. Turn the
Select Knob to select YES for metric units or to NO
for American/English (standard) units.
2. Turn the Select Knob until TEMP IN C OR F?
is displayed.
Set Program Start Delay
Note: The delay subtracts the time it takes to heat the
muffle to the entry temperature so the delay time may
appear shorter than originally programmed. As an
example; let’s assume the delay is set for 30 minutes,
the entry temperature is 500° C, and the time it takes
the furnace to reach 500° C is 15 minutes. The furnace
would count down 15 minutes to the beginning of the
program and then would begin heating to the entry
temperature. This gives us a total of 30 minutes before
the table rises to the muffle.
The furnace has a unique feature that allows the operator
to program a delay to occur before the start of all
programs. This delay occurs before the entry time set
into each program begins. This feature may be changed
without affecting the programs or calibrations stored in
the furnace.
1. Press the Special Functions button.
2. Turn the Select Knob until second line on the display reads PROG START DELAY.
3. Press the Next button to look at or change the start
delay time.
4. The display will read TIME = 0.00 or any time
delay previously entered. Turn the Select Knob
to change the time as desired.
5. Press the Next button.

Select Constant Vacuum
A selection of no will allow the vacuum pump to
turn off and on to maintain the set vacuum level.
If intermittant vacuum is selected but the vacuum
pump runs continuously during the program cycle,
the vacuum level is set too high. The actual level is
within 3% of the selected level, but the pump cannot reach the full selected level. This can be corrected by reducing the vacuum level. See page 11

Adjust Calibration to Match
Your Porcelain
Porcelain fires according to energy, temperature
(singular) and time. All porcelain furnaces fire slightly
different. Even porcelain furnaces from the same
manufacturer can fire porcelains at slightly different
temperatures. The Pro Series furnaces address this
problem by allowing you to customize the calibration.
Both the Pro 100 and Pro Press 100 calibrations can
be adjusted for normal high-fusing porcelains and for
low-fusing porcelains (see pages 14 and 15). Use the
low-fusing adjustments if your porcelain fires at or below
800° C/ 1470° F. Use the high-fusing adjustments if your
porcelain fires above 800° C/1470° F.
The furnace comes with a Certificate of
Temperature Calibration. This certificate shows the
actual temperature in the muffle for several temperatures
as displayed by the furnace. Special instrumentation is
used at the factory to achieve these close calibration
tolerances. Adjusting the calibration as described here
will allow you to globally adjust the temperature for
all programs.
These adjustments do not affect each other, so
both adjustments can be used if you fire both
types of porcelain.
The Pro Press 100 has another calibration
adjustment specifically for pressing programs.
This feature (cal pres temp) can be adjusted
just like the high- and low-fusing adjustments.

Cleaning The Furnace
Only clean the table with Windex® or water and a towel.
Using other cleaners will harm the anodized surface.
Your new furnace has been painted with an epoxy based
paint and may be cleaned by using a soft cloth and kitchen
cleaners such as Fantastic® or Formula 409®. The front
panel should be cleaned with a window cleaner such as
Windex®.
use windex® or water only. You will
encounter problems if 409® or Fantastic®
Is used to clean the table.
Never clean the display window with a dry cloth or tissue.
Always moisten the cleaning cloth with a cleaner such as
Windex® or water.
Battery Replacement
Your furnace contains a battery that is used to maintain
power to the computer memory even when the power is
turned off. This battery should be replaced every 5 years,

to make sure the version is newer than the version
currently on your furnace. Example — 2.02.01** is older
than 2.05.01**. 2.05.01** is older than 2.05.03**, etc.
Do not use the wrong version of software.
If THE furnace is a Pro Press 100,
the version number should resemble
2.06.02 PR or 2.06.02 P1
if it is a Pro 100. If unsure, please consult
customer service.

Argon Gas Requirements and
Installation (Pro 100 only)
USE ONLY ARGON GAS IN THE PRO 100 FURNACE.
ATTACHING ANY FLAMMABLE OR NOXIOUS GAS
TO THIS FURNACE COULD CAUSE EXPLOSION
OR PERSONAL INJURY!
Do not attach the gas to
the furnace yet.
3. Attach one end of the supplied hose to the
low-pressure regulator.
The best source of Argon is from your local bottled gas
dealer. Usually the same dealer who furnishes Oxygen
can also supple Argon. If not, he can recommend a reliable
source. There are generally three grades of Argon available
and your dealer can tell you the cost of each. Most furnace
buyers use the lower cost commercial or industrial grade
of Argon.
Do not attach the other end
to the furnace yet.
4. Turn on the gas supply to the regulators.
The same dealer should be able to supply a regulator for
the bottled Argon. The regulator should be similar to the
one on an Oxygen tank. It should have a gauge showing the
pressure inside the tank, and a smaller gauge showing the
pressure applied to the outside system. The smaller gauge
should be no more than 120 PSI maximum.
5. Adjust the pre-regulator (supplied by your gas dealer)
to around 20 PSI.
6. Pull the red locking ring on the low-pressure regulator
towards the black knob on the bottom of the regulator
to release the knob. Turn the black knob fully counterclockwise. The pressure should be 0.
The furnace requires between one and two PSI of Argon
gas pressure. The use of more pressure will not improve the
performance of the furnace. If you plan to use the Argon gas
feature of this furnace you should purchase a low-pressure
Argon post regulator kit.
7. Turn the black knob clockwise until the low-pressure
gauge reads between 1.0 and 1.5 PSI.
8. Push the red locking ring up towards the gauge.
This will lock the pressure setting.
The low-pressure post regulator kit attaches to the regulator
supplied by your gas supplier. Installation of the lowpressure regulator is as follows:
9. Turn off the gas supply from the bottle. Be sure to turn
off the supply when the gas is not being used to avoid
the loss of gas due to fitting leaks.
DO NOT REMOVE THE REGULATOR SUPPLIED BY
YOUR BOTTLED GAS SUPPLIER. THE LOWPRESSURE REGULATOR IS IN ADDITION TO THE
REGULATOR SUPPLIED WITH YOUR BOTTLE.
10.Attach the hose to the Argon connector on the
back of the furnace.
1. The regulator supplied by the bottled gas company
usually has a hose barb fitting to attach your hose.
Remove this fitting.
2. The low-pressure regulator kit has a /4 inch male
pipe thread fitting supplied on one end. The other end
has a hose barb fitting for the supply hose to the furnace. Attach the male pipe thread end to the regulator
on the bottle. The first gauge reads the bottle pressure,
the second gauge reads the pre-regulator pressure,
and the third gauge reads from 0 to 15 PSI.
1
The furnace is now ready to run titanium and sintering
programs, which require Argon gas.
Note: The pressure reading may jump higher than
1.5 PSI between firing and at times during the purging
process. This is normal. Pressure may be checked
during the inert cool step in the firing sequence. At
that time Argon is being applied at a constant pressure
to the furnace. The gauge should read between 1 and
1.5 PSI. You may adjust the regulator at this time.

Replacing the Muffle
5. Remove the Press cylinder from the muffle assembly lid,
as shown in Figure Muf. 1, with the 7/64" Allen wrench.
Loosen the steel Allen bolts very carefully as they may
strip the aluminum threads in the lid.
UNPLUG THE UNIT FIRST!
When replacing the muffle, be careful not to touch
the muffle power terminal screws with your
finger or without insulated tools. There is a lot of
current at the terminals, so be very careful when replacing
the muffle! Make sure you unplug the unit before replacing
the muffle.
• Inspect the ceramic rod and replace if cracked
or chipped.
6. Thermocouple removal — BE CAREFUL: THE
THERMOCOUPLE IS VERY SENSITIVE! Make sure
you first have a clean surface or paper towel to lay the
thermocouple on. Disconnect the thermocouple wire
from the connector at the back of the chassis. Then
using a 3/4" wrench turn the bolt counterclockwise until
the thermocouple is free to be pulled out. Pull it carefully
up and out of the top of the muffle after unscrewing It.
1. Unplug the unit! Give the muffle time to
cool before starting.
Do not touch the thermocouple with your
bare hand or lay it on a surface containing
any kind of chemical or dust! Use a paper
towel or a clean surface to lay it on.
7. Remove the four bolts that hold the muffle lid to
the casting using a #3 Phillips head screwdriver.
8. Slide the muffle assembly carefully up and out of
the casting then set it aside, as shown in the
Figure Muf. 2.
2. Turn the furnace around until the back is facing you.
3. Using a #2 Phillips head screwdriver, remove the top
cover of the furnace that covers the muffle assembly.

11.Reinsert the O-ring and carefully place the muffle
assembly onto the O-ring and casting. Some
­alignment may be needed.
17.Insert the thermocouple into the lid and slowly tighten.
12.Place the fan on top of the lid of the new muffle assembly
and insert the bolts loosely. Make sure to insert one tab of
the fan thermostat under the fan mount before tightening
the screws. Make sure to center the fan thermostat in the
thermal joint compound (white paste).
13.Insert the other two bolts toward the back and tighten
all four in a crisscross pattern until the muffle assembly
is tightly connected to the casting.
14.Replace the press cylinder and tighten into place
with the four Allen bolts. While inserting the cylinder
be careful not to damage the insulation. Also check
for rod clearance.
18.Reconnect all other wires and replace top cover.
Make sure to orient the press sensor wire correctly
on the press cylinder (wires facing the back).
(See Figure 52.)
19.Run vacuum test again with idle temperature set at 0° C.

Vac Cal Error
The Pro 100 and Pro Press 100 furnaces offer a number
of self checks and warning messages that are designed to
identify problems. Several of these are listed below:
An error has been detected in the vacuum calibration.
Recalibrate the vacuum temperature to correct this problem.
No Vacuum
The computer has detected a temperature reading higher
than the maximum allowed. The furnace will automatically
shut the heating elements off. Turn the power off to reset
this error. If the error occurs again call for assistance.
Max Temp Error
This error occurs if the furnace has not achieved its target
vacuum level within 90 seconds. The program will abort
automatically. Check the vacuum level setting. If the
barometric pressure is unusual, you may have to call for
fewer vacuums.
Thermocouple Error
This error occurs if you have entered a program name that is
identical to one all ready stored in memory. Press the Next
button to continue. Enter a different name for this program.
This error occurs if the furnace detects an open
thermocouple for a period of 25 seconds. The furnace will
automatically turn off the heating elements. The furnace
should be turned off and on again to clear this error. If the
error occurs again, the thermocouple should be replaced.
Printer Error
Start = Load Code
This occurs if the printer is not online, paper is out or an
error signal is received from the printer. Press the Next
button to continue. Reset the printer, make sure it has paper,
make sure the online light is on. Attempting to print again.
This error occurs if the internal battery fails. Contact your
dealer or a factory technician.
Duplicate Name
Illegal Opcode
This is an internal computer error. Turn the furnace off, wait
20 seconds, and turn the furnace back on. This process will
assure that the computer is reset. If the error is persistent,
contact your dealer.
Check Programs
The computer has detected a corruption of the memory in
the area where programs are stored. Check all programs
and correct any that have been changed.
Temp Cal Error
An error has been detected in the temperature calibration.
